We’re situated a mile from the sand beaches of Swanage and only a 30-minute journey from the popular human geography sites such as Boscombe or Poundbury. Fantastic learning opportunities surround us with, for example, the sand dunes at Studland beaches are just a 10-minute journey away and the famous Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove only a 25-minute drive.
