We are located on the beautiful Isle of Purbeck, just outside the picturesque seaside town of Swanage. It offers an excellent base for Geography trips and fieldwork or the opportunity for other outdoor experiences. We provide board and accommodation for school groups of up to 70.


With the Jurassic Coast right on our doorstep, we are perfect for any geographers looking to reinforce classroom topics with practical experience.


We can provide expertise, guidance and equipment tailored to your particular course or project. Alternatively you may want to use our accommodation and facilities to organise your own residential trip or use our grounds for camping as some Duke of Edinburgh participants do.
