Andrea in the office was helpful and efficient at getting back to us and putting together the programme. The high ropes and zip were great fun and tuition for surfing was excellent. Paul our instructor was fun and safety... More

Pros- booked boys in for a surfing session for an afternoon. Very easily booked, helpful staff, reasonable price. All equipment provided. Boys were transferred to Westward Ho! beach by minibus. The boys were very happy when they came back and said they had a wonderful time. Cons-rather muddled instructions about where to wait,which left my youngest slightly anxious.

I spent a week at Skern Lodge last year for my geography fieldwork and can only leave with it my most upward appraisals. The staff were fun and full of banter, even if some took a bit of coming round too, the food in the canteen could have been of Michelin star quality, especially the lunches. The bar is an... More

My husband, 8 year old son and I spent a fun filled day at Skern Lodge during the Easter holidays. The adventure day we signed up for was Surfing/Body Boarding in the morning and the Assault Course and Zip Wire during the afternoon. No one in my family had done surfing before and we were all looking forward to trying... More

Have just got back after a week with 77 9 and 10 year olds. It truly is an awesome place! The activities are fantastic and the instructors are just fabulous. They are so good, they even managed to get one of our teachers up the climbing wall after 14 years of not being able to do it. Alex and Alex... More

I was part of a Charity Kayak trip doing some training for our exped in June. I must say the facilities were second to none and the instructors were fantastic, food and accom also excellent. Cant wait to return in the Summer with work colleagues. Keep up the great work Glynn and all at Skern Lodge.

We took the extended family and did several activities over the day. The staff were friendly, helpful and were able to allow people to enjoy themselves without being too restrictive due to health and safety. The kids all responded well to the guidance provided and the staff kept the interest and focus whilst encouraging the guys to move along. A... More

Skern lodge is an outdoor adventure centre on the river Torridge just outside of Bideford North Devon. I spent the day there last week as a youth leader of young people and had a really great time, but more importantly they had an amazing experience and adventure. We started off with a quick briefing on what we were to do... More

The experience was awesome - nothing we disliked about it. My husband and daughter went kayaking and Cara loved it (age 10). She was put at ease right away by the male instructor
