Grittleton Manor House

School Trips @ Classes Abroad

Grittleton House is a stunning Victorian manor house offering secure group accommodation all year round. Formerly a private school up until 2016, our superb venue is ideally set up to cater for school groups of all ages.

Classes Abroad Ltd have 25 years experience working from Grittleton House planning bespoke trips for school groups, and with our local knowledge we can assist teachers in planning and booking a trip that will be both educational and memorable. We can assist in every aspect of planning a school trip to the South West of England.

We have links with local guides and attractions; can arrange excursions and coach travel; and offer a range of catering options and onsite activities to exactly suit the needs of every school.
