School Trips @ Allnatt

Home / Residentials South West / Dorset

The Chatsworth is a stone’s throw from Swanage Bay, perfect for schools wanting to discover the Jurassic coast and visit the seaside.

The centre is in Swanage, Dorset and has a rich tradition. Opened in 1972, it is made up of traditional Seaside Guesthouses. With the Jurassic coastline and open countryside right on the doorstep, it is an exciting venue for outdoor adventure and focused learning in a picturesque location.

The main building incorporates dormitory and recreational areas including an outdoor games area, dining hall, as well as 7 study rooms and leaders lounges with tea and coffee facilities. Although made up of 5 separate buildings, the centre is compact and all the facilities are within easy reach. The centre has its own outdoor heated swimming pool.
