NO NEED TO TRAVEL ANY FURTHER...
Battisborough House is surrounded by a plethora of natural learning resources – the beach, the coast, woodland, extensive grounds and our very own farm! Children can enjoy a short walk to Mothecombe beach which is packed full of learning potential. Explore the cliff paths or participate in activities such as orienteering, archery, shooting, team games, tennis, learning bush craft, building camp fires, camping, drama, arts and crafts.
Battisborough House can provide bespoke teaching packages with a fully qualified Forest and Beach School Leader. In addition, children can visit a working dairy farm to observe farming in action and sample our very own delicious Surfing Cow Ice Cream! Through interactive visits children can discover the journey ‘from farm to fork’ and are encouraged to ask questions about agriculture, food production and our environment.
Battisborough House has accommodation for 60 children. Visits are fully catered. Boys and girls can be allocated their own dormitories. Staff can relax during their time off in the en-suite rooms.
