What we offer on a school trip
Monkton Wyld Court is a large 19th Century Neo-Gothic mansion located in Dorset - an idyllic location.
Our eleven acres of gardens, meadows, woodland, and farm are set in a secluded valley within walking distance of Lyme Regis and Dorset’s Jurassic coast.
We offer bed and breakfast and self-catering accommodation in simple, comfortable rooms at affordable rates. We have hostel and camping facilities, and we also specialise in writer’s and artist’s retreats - providing a room and meals for an extended period at a discounted price.
The house and grounds, including a meeting hall, a marquee, and sleeping accommodation, can cater for up to 37 people. It can be hired for school trips, workshops, conferences, and other events.
Much of the food we serve is produced using organic methods in our walled vegetable garden, or on our farm, which supports a micro-dairy of Jersey cows.
The Court is run and maintained by a resident Workers’ Cooperative with the help of volunteers.
We promote a lifestyle based on respect for each other and the natural environment and strive to live sustainably.
