We've partnered up with Silva Navigation School to provide a selection of all-inclusive Bronze and Silver navigation courses throughout the year. The Silva Navigation instructors follow the National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) syllabus, providing a structured approach to learning navigation skills. To complement the navigation courses, we provide comfortable, en suite accommodation, full catering over the course of the weekend and access to a licensed bar in the evenings.

Bronze NNAS Map and Compass Course

The Bronze NNAS Map and Compass Course is a practical award aimed at people who are new to navigation and map reading.


The syllabus of the Bronze National Navigation Award allows participants to develop a range of skills, such as: 

  • Using 4 and 6 figure grid references 

  • Orientating the map using obvious features and land forms

  • Using linear features such as paths and tracks in simple navigation exercises

  • Measuring horizontal distance on a map

  • Demonstrating an awareness of the Countryside Code

What's included:

The course runs from Friday evening - Sunday afternoon, with catering provided throughout the weekend. This includes 2 x cooked and continental breakfast buffets, 2 x packed lunches and 2 x evening meals. We cater for all dietary requirements, including gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan. Just let us know! A licensed bar will be available in the evening, which offers a selection of local bottled beers, wines and spirits. 

All participants will have sole occupancy of a comfortable, en suite bedroom. Lockers are provided in each bedroom to keep your belonging safe whilst you're out and about.
