    Magdalen Environmental Trust

    Winsham, Chard, Somerset TA20 4PA


    Join us for school trips and residential stays, environmental education, geography fieldtrips or just for fun.

    Every school and every class is different so we design a bespoke itinerary with each school individually.

    Whatever your students' understanding of the countryside and the environment, we will ensure that the learning experience meets their needs. For some of our schools, tangible education is their priority, while for others it is giving the children personal development and a taste of another lifestyle.

    We provide flexible accommodation for up to 63 guests and offer homemade satisfying meals for our residential guests - with many of the ingredients coming direct from the farm.

    Your students can enjoy a range of activities from breakfast through until the evening.

    You don’t need to stay overnight to give your class a great experience at Magdalen – we run day trips too.

    Build dens in our woodlands, hunt for mini-beasts in wildlife meadows, discover the River Axe or feed and care for our farm animals. One of our most popular activities is to learn where good food comes from, harvesting home-grown produce from our orchard and fruit and vegetable gardens.
