At Calvert Trust Exmoor it's what you CAN do that counts.

All of our breaks are built around a structured programme of activities, lead by our qualified instructors and tailored to the specific needs of our visitors. The range of indoor and outdoor activities guarantees fun and adventure whatever the weather.

We provide both standard and adaptive equipment as well as waterproofs. Visitors need to bring warm comfortable clothing. for a suggested kit list please download either our kit list or easy read kit list.

The centre has exclusive access to Wistlandpound reservoir for Sailing*, kayaking and canoeing, and we have our own pontoon with hoist facilities. 



We offer a wide selection of accessible cycling options including hand cranks, KMX bikes, fun2go tandems and a Veloplus wheelchair loading bike.

Our stables and indoor and outdoor riding arenas offer horse experience activities such as natural horsemanship, stable management and working horses, as well as riding and carriage driving.* 


Climbing and abseiling take place on both our indoor and outdoor climbing walls, both provide variety to suit all abilities; you can even abseil in a wheelchair. Alternatively take the zip wire for an instant adrenalin rush!

Our archery range provides the ideal opportunity to learn basic archery techniques or to enhance existing skills. 

Learn bush craft and survival skills in the woods or try the challenge course and tackle the spiders web and navigate the swamp crossing if you dare! Our woodland area includes a fantastic low ropes course including the rats tail walk, postman’s walk, Burma bridge, wobbly bridge and zip wire!

We have both indoor and outdoor crate stack and the challenge continues to find out who can stack the most crates before the stack collapses.


For those who wish to venture further afield and see more of North Devon we can build a discovery and exploration session into your programme. Trips can be tailored to your requirements whether it’s a visit to a local town or a nearby beach or one of the many local attractions such as Exmoor Zoo.  


* Please note Sailing is not currently available on midweek breaks, and Horse Activities are not available at weekends (except for our special Horse Experience Weekends).

"One pupil who does not often show signs of any concentration used a lot of hand/eye coordination in the archery and showed a lot of awareness of cause and effect. He really came to life!"
