Overview
More
An outdoor activity centre offering up to 20 different adventure activities on Dartmoor. Suitable for groups, families or individuals looking for a fun day out. You and your fellow adventurers can have a go at mountain boarding, archery and scaling the climbing wall or ropes, with watersports including surfing, gorge scrambling, kayaking and canoeing on offer at the hostel’s private lake; true headers for heights can also have a go at the Big Oke Abseil. This small family run activity centre on the edge of Dartmoor has all sorts of outdoor adventures for all ages from 5 upwards. Birthday party, Stag and hen parties all catered for, and we even have costumes for that great picture to remember a special day. Skills courses also available, such as BCU 1 star kayaking and NNAS Navigation courses. Training to work in the outdoor industry is possible, with our activity trainees, who undertake their apprenticeships run through Exeter College. We usually take 4-6 apprentices each year.
