About Bawdsey Manor

Residential school trips don’t get much better than this! Panoramic views, beautiful beaches and 144 acres packed with adventure – Bawdsey Manor is our exciting new activity centre for primary schools.

Opening in spring 2018, we’ll be working on making this a very special place to bring your pupils; with comfortable accommodation, all the thrilling adventure activities we know schools love, and a fantastic on-centre team to support you and your group throughout their stay.

There’ll be so much for your pupils to see and do in and around the centre. There are playing fields and spaces for indoor games, stunning grounds and beaches to explore, as well as indoor meeting space.

If you’d like to see Bawdsey Manor for yourself, we’ll be announcing preview visit dates very soon. Bookings are already open for spring 2018 so don’t hesitate to get in touch to secure your preferred dates for next year.

Food

Enjoyable mealtimes with nutritious and tasty food
Our meals are freshly cooked, balanced and will give your pupils plenty of energy to keep them going throughout the day.

Our little extras
In addition to our fantastic range of hot meals, (which are freshly prepared and include vegetarian options), we offer tasty, healthy, homemade soup every day. There’s also a wide variety of fresh fruit and salad options at our salad bar – it’s great when they want to try something new!

Fussy Eaters?
We know some of your pupils may be particular about what they eat. Don’t worry though, whether it’s because of special dietary needs or simply someone who’s really particular, we will always find something to suit any special requests you may have. And if they’re still hungry, we can offer alternatives and extra food.

Looking after you
Good meals in an efficient and clean environment is always a given with us, but we like to do much more. We go all-out to create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere in pleasant, attractive surroundings to help you to enjoy dining with us.
