Established in 1984 by Brian and Jane Eddies-Davies, The Old Vicarage was converted from their family home into hostel accommodation. In 1988, with their son Anthony becoming the UK's youngest Senior Instructor at the age of 18, he joined his parents in setting the centre up as predominantly a provider of activities. A few years later the site expanded and the centre now operates from its 30 acres. By 1998 Anthony had taken over the running of the business, with his wife Stephanie running 'Country treks' and the horse riding part of the business.

Now over 25 years later the Old Vicarage Adventure centre is renowned as a leading activity centre, offering one of the largest ranges of activities, on its own sites with its own permanent team of staff of any UK provider. It offers a wide range of specialist adventure courses, training and expeditions throughout the world, and in 2010 expands its operations into Nepal with its own centre specialising in kayak and rafting, courses, trips and training.
