A place to stay, with great food.


Skern Lodge

Our flagship site

Situated in North Devon within 22 acres of its own land on the banks of the Taw Torridge estuary, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The centre has been designed to allow effective outdoor learning to take place utilising the stunning local area as well as it’s on site activities, this is complemented by dedicated meeting rooms, accommodation and dining facilities.


A good night’s sleep is essential after a busy day of training. There are four accommodation areas, all close by and private to each group. Rooms are often shared by course participants and are warm, clean and comfortable, and fully prepared on arrival. Each group is allocated their own training/meeting room and social area; with facilities nearby.


The dining room is at the heart of the centre, serving a good choice of food, using local produce and all prepared on-site by our chefs. A full English breakfast, a packed or hot lunch depending on activities on the day, followed by a three course dinner will be enjoyed. All dietary requirements can also be easily met. Each group has an allocated meal time to enjoy their time together and discuss their days’ events; a vital social part of the whole experience.
