About YHA Okehampton Bracken Tor
Number of beds: 77 Classrooms Free Wi-Fi in communal areas
Quiet base for Adventure Okehampton activities
Sitting within the Dartmoor National Park, YHA Okehampton Bracken Tor Adventure Centre offers a unique combination of woodland, wildlife, wilderness and accessibility. It is set within 4 acres of landscaped grounds, with stunning views over north Devon. For groups, two separate accommodation buildings allow smaller groups to enjoy their own space, each building with leader rooms, drying rooms, meeting areas and outdoor activity sites. A separate building provides catered groups with a dining room that seats 77.
Okehampton is ideally situated on the edge of the National Park, whilst the moors, tors, crags and lakes that we use as our outdoor learning venues are all within easy reach for our fleet of minibuses. Just beyond Bracken Tor, you can walk on footpaths onto Dartmoor, and the Sustrans cycling track is a short distance down the main road.
On-site activities can include archery, high ropes course, orienteering, climbing wall, team building exercises, cycle tours and night walks/navigation challenges. Off site, our numerous venues ensure the great locations for rock-climbing, gorge-scrambling, abseiling, canoeing, raft- building and weaselling, and include themed watersports or Meldon days that combine several activities in one experience.
Every aspect of our Adventure Activity provision is carefully designed to enhance a group’s learning potential and the overall quality of the experience. Activity groups will be guided through the basic skills required, enabling participants to experience the adrenaline rush as they push their personal boundaries and their confidence grows.
Whatever fully inclusive package is chosen, we work with group leaders to ensure that the programme, venue, content and style are all adjusted to optimise both the group and individual learning opportunities. We can also work to provide accessible adventures for all - any group can add on some activity inputs to enhance their stay. Our accommodation and many activities are accessible to groups or individuals with significant learning and/or physical disabilities.
