  • Osmington Bay for Youth Groups

Youth residential centre on the Dorset coast

There are many reasons youth groups keep coming back to Osmington Bay year after year. For some, it’s a residential adventure centre with the most breathtaking views across the sea and direct access to the beach. For others, it’s the opportunity to experience some great watersports at the Portland Bay Olympic venue nearby.

Whatever the motivation, Osmington Bay is one of our most popular activity centres, located in the heart of the Jurassic Coast, near Weymouth.

It offers a huge variety of thrilling adventure activities for your group to enjoy, on and off the centre and there’s even an indoor activity zone which is perfect in bad weather!

With accommodation provided in purpose-built chalets that are built on a hill to make the most of those stunning views, there couldn’t be a better place to bring your group together for the trip of a lifetime.


At Osmington, your youth group will stay in chalet style accommodation.

  • Group - En suite rooms, sleeping 4-6
  • Leaders - Twin or single en suite rooms


  • Classrooms
  • ICT facilities
  • Indoor activity zone
  • Shop
  • Leaders' lounge
  • Sports hall
  • Leaders' bar
