Education is about so much more than what you learn in the classroom.

You should be able to see, touch, hear and smell your subject! Hestercombe provides an ideal venue for this truly immersive, experimental form of learning.

Hestercombe has a wide range of educational opportunities for our academic visitors. We can accommodate different group sizes and abilities with over fifty acres of glorious landscape and formal gardens and large woodland areas for you to use.

Whether you want an active outdoor session or classroom based learning, through our education providers we can arrange activities linking the outdoors with elements from the National Curriculum.
