Easter Adventures 2019

April is an good time to visit Dartmoor, as the spring brings new leaves and shoots and everything becomes green. Our Easter Adventure at YHA Okehampton can be combined with other holidays within the area, to create a great spring holiday for 2019. If you want to spend an extra few days around Okehampton, there are family friendly attractions, such as the RHS Rosemoor and National Trust properties (Lydford Gorge) many of which run family activities with Easter Eggs/Lindt Bunnies as prizes. The marine centre at Wembury has rock-pooling adventures or stop off at Seaton Jurassic on your way to Okehampton giving the kids a variety of new adventures.

Our Adventure holiday allows your family to let off some steam, learn new skills and explore the wilderness areas with wild running rivers, beautiful moorland and granite tors, all within easy reach of the hostel. Our evening walk provides your first taste of the open moorland, wooded valleys and rivers that are typical of Dartmoor. Then either one day or three days of activities are taken from our weekly programme, the options are fixed depending on the day of arrival. In spring some of the more popular activities are archery, cycle trail, high ropes and canoeing.

When do they run?

  • Friday 12th April to Sunday 21st April 2019

There will be individual bookable taster sessions for activities between 6 April and 13 April 2019 for those whose holidays start in the week before.
