The centre provides a fantastic range of development training programmes and activities ideal for school and youth groups. There are extensive grounds, a launderette, games room and a heated outdoor swimming pool.

It’s a great short break destination for groups in the south and west of England or for schools from further afield looking to enjoy an exciting trip in the great outdoors.

Activities

We will work with you to build a programme to suit your requirements. With a range of supervised activities from archery to orienteering, each can provide a very different learning outcome. A typical day contains a variety of activity sessions tailored to meet the needs, ambitions and expectations of our group.

Excursions

Local attractions include Hartland Abbey and Gardens; Water Mouth Castle amusement park; or take a boat to Lundy Island and Marine Nature Reserve. If you are planning an extended stay, then why not enjoy some of the fabulous beaches of the region including the popular surfing beach of Croyde – less than an hour from the centre.
