Preparing for your stay


By Coach – It is the responsibility of schools to book coaches to Lineham Farm. (We will send you information for the coach driver when you book). Please arrive at the top of Swan Lane at 11am on your arrival day (unless you have specifically arranged a different time with the centre) where you will be met by Lineham Staff. They will transport the luggage back to the centre, while the group enjoy the walk down Swan Lane to the centre. You will then be met by Lineham Staff – who will welcome and settle the group in.

If you are coming by minibus please arrive in our car park at 11am, and wait for our team to come and meet you.


Unless you have arranged to stay longer or you are on a one night residential please arrange to be picked up at the end of Swan Lane at 1.30pm on departure day. The Lineham Staff will transport your luggage to the top of Swan Lane – while the group walk up to meet the coach.
