About Bawdsey Manor

Cubs and Scout groups will love exploring our brand new adventure centre on the beautiful Suffolk Heritage coast. Located on the Deben Estuary, Bawdsey Manor has over 140 acres of grounds, including a fantastic beach with panoramic views across the coast.

The centre has great facilities for Cubs and Scouts including comfortable accommodation, playing fields and plenty of indoor and outdoor spaces for sports and games.

It really is a fantastic location to inspire a sense of adventure, with so much to see and do. The manor itself is steeped in history and the extensive grounds provide a beautiful setting to unwind in after an action-packed day.
