About Us

H5 is a leading provider of Team Building & Outdoor Activities, with over 20 years of experience serving both the education sector and corporate clients. We are an Independent and Family Run business, with our reputation built on a personalised and professional service.

Our locations

Most of our activities take place at our privately owned venue, ‘The Lake’. Located just ten minutes from the M4 (Jct 16), ‘The Lake’ is set amongst rolling Wiltshire countryside, with views of the Broad Town White Horse. This beautiful 33 acre site has a truly private and rural feel, yet has all the facilities necessary to deliver our full range of courses. Our office and stores are also located here, just south of Royal Wootton Bassett.

We can also deliver activities in the Brecon Beacons National Park, or at your own premises as required.

Our team

Our business depends on the professionalism of our team. We therefore only employ staff who can offer expert instruction and are calm, mature leaders. Our instructors hail from a wide range of backgrounds, including senior management, outdoor enthusiasts, teachers and other public service workers.  All are experienced in outdoor pursuits, and hold relevant, up-to-date qualifications.

Over the last 20 years, our team have worked successfully with everyone from primary school children to corporate management teams. We have guided and assessed over 4,500 youngsters on the Duke of Edinburgh award schemes.

Our safety measures

In all of our activities, the safety of all parties takes the highest priority. We have an excellent safety record and take the safety of our clients, ourselves and any third parties very seriously. Our safety measures include:

  • Ensuring instructors and staff have relevant qualifications and/or experience
  • Ensuring all instructors and staff are DBS enhanced checked
  • Thorough risk assessments for each activity
  • Clear safety policies and contingency measures understood by all staff
  • AALA license holders (Adventure Activity Licensing Authority, licence no. L12186)

  • AAP License to deliver The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Expeditions
  • £5million Public Liability Insurance (Activities Industry Mutual)
