    • Historic Knowle Hall, set in 15 acres of parkland close to Bawdrip village in Somerset (with local attractions and restaurants within easy walking distance) is expanding its operations to host international students stranded by COVID-19 restrictions.


      Our thoughts go out to overseas students facing unprecedented challenges as well as our alumni and their families. Seeing a clear need for safe and affordable accommodation that also offers a suitable social environment we have thrown open our doors as students caught in these uncertain times await the reopening of campuses and classrooms.

      A key plinth in the Yew Chung Yew Wah global network, Somerset Cultural Centre, Knowle Hall espouses the Foundation’s motto: “align with love and charity”.
