The Countryside Education Trust

About Us

The Countryside Education Trust is situated in the beautiful surroundings of the New Forest, close to the Beaulieu river and only 10 minutes drive from the beach.  We provide residential and day visit facilities in an idyllic setting, offering activities for all ages and abilities.  It is a special place with a unique atmosphere, which is apparent from the moment you arrive.  

We aim to provide a stimulating environment in which children and adults can connect with the countryside, never forgetting that the real learning experience is the great outdoors. 

From Farm life to Wildlife!

We are in the unique position of being able to offer activities on either our farm and garden site or at our fantastic New Forest Treehouse Study Centre in Hartford Wood on the Beaulieu estate. 

Children leave after an experience at the Countryside Education Trust with wonderful, sometimes life-changing memories of their visit.  

If you are thinking of bringing a group and would like to discuss your requirements or have a tour of out facilities, please contact us.   We would love to share the CET experience with you.  

Or come and visit us on an Open Day – an ideal opportunity to see what we do and have a great day out at the same time!

Come for a stay at the Out of Town Centre  where we’ll cater for your every need or stay on a self catered basis at the weekend or during the school holidays.

Come and see our food production in the Farm and Garden and purchase some of our excellent New Forest Marque Fresh Farm Produce.
