The video above provides a snapshot of our
school term-time and holiday-time residential visits for
children and young people of all ages. Our school residential
visits have received outstanding feedback. We pride ourselves
on providing a high standard of care and we love inspiring
everyone about our beautiful natural surroundings.
Forest & Beach is an independent outdoor
learning centre based in beautiful Beeson, South Devon, one
mile from the stunning beach at Beesands.
Run by experienced Devon-based teachers, Forest
& Beach residential stays have received outstanding reviews.
A peaceful, private site overlooking Start Bay where children
explore, play and investigate nature in a safe and secure environment.
Children can enjoy firelighting, outdoor cooking,
shelter-building, beach exploration, investigating aquatic habitats
by canoe with 'Singing Paddles', archery, farm and historical
walks, and a private lighthouse visit. Children are given time
to follow their own line of enquiry so that the natural world
around them can excite and stimulate.
Facilities: Eco-barn powered by wind turbine
and solar panels, compost loos, new solar powered showers, private
woodland, event field for camping, insulated Pod and Yurt.
Bespoke packages for Year 3 and upwards
2-day, 3-day, 4-day and 5-day stays available.
"If you are considering a camping residential,
with a focus on outstanding outdoor education provision, I would
certainly recommend Forest & Beach without hesitation."
