Underfloor heated flagstone floor and wood burner keep everywhere nice and toasty. By using 'Bertha' our biomass boiler and sourcing timber from within the National Park we minimise our carbon footprint.

With a digital whiteboard, microscopes, webcams taking in the wildlife on the farm, comfy seating, and plenty of tables, the field centre has everything you need for an engaging and inspiring learning environment.
