Adventure Okehampton activities on site

This old railway goods shed can look after shedloads of people – it’s been providing exciting activities to groups for over 15 years. With Adventure Okehampton, activity groups and school trips can burn off steam with rock climbing, abseiling and incredible walking routes. Whether you’re a group of hikers or want to explore our historical attractions, YHA Okehampton is an ideal base.

The hostel has free Wi-Fi to stay connected and a spacious lounge, games room and dining area for groups to socialise. For on-site study groups, we can offer classroom facilities for budding geographers, and there’s even a cycling workshop if you’re a cycling group in need of patching up.

After a day exploring the moors, settle down for some breakfast, lunch or dinner with our group catering options. We’re so close to the Dartmoor wilderness, with stunning landmarks like Lydford Gorge and attractions like Okehampton Castle within reach. If adventure is what you’re here for, get involved with Adventure Okehampton to try gorge scrambling, rock climbing and team challenges.
