From little learners to university students, we create a memorable learning experience tailored to your study needs. We offer a variety of activities both inside and outside, which bring the cottage and its stories alive in ways that entertain and inspire you and your pupils.

Stoneywell provides students with the opportunity to explore local history, the Arts and Crafts Movement and to discover what life was like in a 1950s home. All of our activities can be tailored to suit your group's needs, making it a great place to bring students of all ages, from primary and secondary schools to colleges, universities and home educators.
