self led coast activity trip


Residential school trips are a great way for children to explore the outdoors, but getting them approved can be tricky. We understand that for some schools and parents funding out of classroom experiences is an increasing problem. We provide flexible options and the very best in value so that the residential experience is one that all children can benefit from. We own our own centres meaning we are open all year and we have a core team of highly experienced staff to support your trip. We offer a range of accommodation options. In addition to booking a residential stay, you can talk to us about our summer camping at East Dene, which may be suitable for your group, depending on its size.

No matter which location you choose, Swanage or the Isle of Wight, you can take advantage of our hostel-style facilities including meeting/classrooms, games rooms, kit storage, drying rooms, lovely grounds, and great social spaces. This offers ideal places for fieldwork subject write-ups or reflection diaries, and a space to gather your group together for some downtime too.

We’re relaxed about you doing your own thing

If you want to stay with us but run your own self led programme then book a ‘Young Traveller (or Young Traveller Plus to add in activities to suit).

We are within walking distance to the town centre of Swanage and Ventnor, Old Harry’s Rocks, Ballard Down and Studland Bay, St Boniface Down, and Sandown Bay, whilst Lulworth Cove, Corfe Castle and The Needles are just a short journey away.

Book a Self-Led Residential


Our Young Travellers Programme is led by you, with our expert support & help. Our Young Traveller Plus Programme lets you add in low cost adventure activities which will be a hit with your kids and are led by our  qualified tutors and instructors.

If your itinerary has a few gaps you may wish to include some of the specialist activities we have on offer. Our activity options are great for schools and groups staying on a self-led residential experience, but are looking for some extra activities to keep everyone occupied or additional activities to enhance your subject learning. Our teaching teams can guide your group on an outdoor learning journey, through a variety of activities, that will enrich your residential experience and are designed to educate & inspire.

Our staff are here to support you with every aspect of planning your visit, from health and safety planning to organising your itinerary. Our flexible approach means that we can provide you with a residential that’s built around your needs and delivered at the low prices group leaders can expect from Allnatt.
