Residential Weekend at The Kingcombe Centre Dorset

Sold Out

Event info

For the 2022 Summer Residential Weekend, the Nature Group is returning to The Kingcombe Centre in West Dorset.  Not only does Kingcombe provide a central point to visit Dorset’s many Nature Reserves, but the Centre itself is situated in Kingcombe Meadows, one of southern England’s best Nature Reserves.  A full programme of visits to Dorset’s Nature Reserves will be planned.  For further information on the venue visit The Kingcombe Centre website:

The weekend starts with an evening meal on Friday evening and ends after breakfast on Monday.  Packed lunches are included for Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  A meeting room with projector will be available each evening and a programme of evening talks is planned plus the opportunity to look at Members’ images from the day's activities.

Up to sixteen places are available dependant on the mix of single and shared twin bed occupancy.  All rooms have en-suite facilities.  One bedroom has disabled access.

The final cost is £350 for single occupancy and £290 for shared twin bed occupancy.  A deposit of £150 for single occupancy or £125 for shared occupancy will secure a place.  Final payments will be required by Friday 8th April 2022.

The Nature Group is hopeful that there will be no Covid-19 restrictions in place by the time of this Residential Weekend.  A final decision whether or not to go ahead will be made based on the best available information and discussion with Kingcombe by mid-April 2022. 

Final payments from participants will be required by Friday 8th April 2022.  After this date, deposits and final payments cannot be refunded, but can be transferred to another photographer.  Members should consider taking out travel insurance to cover any financial loss if they cannot attend.  In the event of the Weekend being cancelled by Kingcombe at any time a full refund will be provided.


Weekend is now Sold Out. If you wish to go on the waiting list in case of cancellations, please email the organiser below.
