The centre offers self-catering accommodation - there is sleeping inside for 24 people, split between three dormitories and one double room. In addition to the 24 beds, we can extend the capacity with tents (catering for up to 16 extra people) giving our visitors the chance to sleep under canvas (full catering, toilet and shower facilities).  The centre is a mile and a half from the South West Coast Path and the Jurassic Coast (a World Heritage Site) making it ideal for small educational groups to enjoy a relaxing break with walking, outdoor adventure activities and other social events. For students, the centre offers an ideal base for field studies, social education programmes, appreciation of living and learning skills.
