  • Location:5 minutes by bus from the academy
  • Type of rooms:19 double rooms
  • Bathroom:Private
  • Quality of accommodation:3/5

Participants in the England High-performance Summer Soccer Camps find accommodation at The Garden House, a quaint 17th-century boutique hotel located just 5 minutes from the training facilities by bus.

The hotel consists of 19 rooms in total, exclusively inhabited by academy students, creating an ideal environment for young soccer players who are serious about improving their soccer skills. Summer camp participants stay in comfortable double rooms (some quadruple) with private restrooms.

Common areas in the residence include a dining room, a study room, a lounge, and a game room where students can play billiards, Ping Pong, or video games during their free time. 
The residence also has free WiFi so participants can use their phones and/or laptop computers. The young athletes are also supervised 24/7 at the residence for their own safety.

Safety

One of the greatest safety assets of the England High-performance Soccer Academy is its location. It’s a quiet town with almost no violence and very little petty crime. As a result, participants over 18 (or under 18 with parental permission) are allowed to leave the campus and explore the town, making it the perfect option for more mature and responsible young athletes. Of course, participants are required to sign out and in so academy staff knows where the students are at all times.

The academy is also quite small and hosts around 40 full-time academy students. The small size means staff members can pay more attention to participants in their programs and their well-being. They also make an effort to get to know the participants to make sure they feel at home while at the academy.
