Schools & Education

What we offer
Goblin Combe Centre offers a range of educational programmes within our private 130 acre woodland and 8 acre field. We work with groups right through from early years learning to further and higher education, offering both day visits and residential. Goblin Combe provides a unique and inspiring setting for learning and personal development outside of the classroom and all of our courses are specifically designed to support the teaching required by your group.

Residential stays
Our 38 bed eco-lodge offers an opportunity to extend your visit to an overnight stay or you can use the lodge as a base for a longer trip. Groups will have exclusive use of the site with the adjoining cottage with its own common room and fully equipped catering kitchen, as well access to outdoor fire-pits, a large timber outdoor classroom, yurt and outdoor games equipment. You can hire all facilities as a stand alone, or combine with a programme of activities that we can tailor to help you achieve the most from your visit. For more information about the accommodation itself please click here.

Activities
All of our programmes are curriculum-linked and are tailored to suit age, ability and objectives. Our schools pack below provides a comprehensive overview of some of the activities we can offer but we would be happy to work with you to develop a bespoke package if required.
