Resedential trips at Howgills Barn
Working in partnership with the Field Studies Council (FSC), we are delighted to offer education residential programmes for school children at our Barn. Based in the historical market town of Sedbergh, our Barn is a 5 minute walk from the centre of town.
Take a breather from the classroom…
Our aim is to make sure that both students and teachers get to spend time on learning outside of the classroom, building social relationships and most importantly enjoying the adventure!
We will organise as much of your trip as you want us to. We want your time with us to be as enjoyable and stress free as possible.

- An inside games room and ‘tractor shed’ lecture theatre for learning with a difference!
- An outside games field
- A large catering kitchen
- Seating for up to 35 people
- 8 ensuite bedrooms
- Underfloor heating & a drying room
- We can provide continental breakfast, packed lunches & hot meals
