Accommodation for schools groups

From hotels to bunkhouses, the venues below have a wealth of experience in accommodating school groups and youth groups. The providers we work with can offer locations throughout the UK and cater for a range of group sizes.

Organising your own trip

The majority of the trips and venues on our website are designed to inspire teachers with tailor made learning opportunities to support their classroom learning. However, sometimes schools already know exactly what they want to achieve, and have the knowledge and resources to run their own successful outdoor learning experiences. With this in mind, we have created a section to feature venues that specialise in providing group accommodation for self-led school trips. Some may also offer workshops or activity teaching, but if you are simply searching for somewhere to stay while you run your own activities, the venues on this page are what you are looking for!

Accommodation is budget friendly, while still providing excellent facilities such as on site classrooms. We can also offer venues that open year round, providing great places to stay in the height of summer or the depths of winter.

Take a look below, or fill out the short enquiry form if you would like us to seek out some great accommodation options for your school group.

Short on time? We can help!

Let us find suitable accommodation for your school trip.
