Whitfield Rural Education Centre
We are delighted to announce our new education base for the west of Dorset! Located just 1 mile from the centre of Dorchester, Whitfield Rural Activity Centre provides a peaceful rural setting for outdoor based activities. The site features an education block and our outdoor space includes an orchard, large greenhouses, a small wooded area, and around 2 – 3 acres of grazing.
We offer our full range of courses and programmes at Whitfield with a particular focus on practical activities such as animal care, horticulture, rural and estate skills. You can find out more about our programmes via the link below.
