As the first dedicated activity centre for children on Dartmoor we love nothing more than staying true to our roots and providing modern facilities in rustic grounds and using nature itself to create activities.
We are only able to take bookings from School's, Youth Groups and Youth Clubs and other charities that work with Children, adult groups and individual bookings are not possible.
The Broadleas Charitable Trust’s driving force is to get young people to enjoy and experience nature at its best within one of our countries finest National Parks. Dartmoor is literally right outside the centre’s gate, with no roads to cross, take just a step and you’re in open moorland ready to let mother nature’s adventures begin.
We provide a safe and secure site for groups of of up to 38 sleeping in the indoor accommodation and groups of up to 55 on the camp site. We also have an on-site staff presence. You can also combine and have exclusive use of the entire site.
With both indoor and outdoor facilities, we will help you create a visit that works perfectly for your group. Whether you are a school, a youth group, a charity, a club or something else we’ll use our experience to make your stay a great experience for all.
Dartmoor Activity Centre is a rare beast, being one of only a handful of centres on Dartmoor that has both secure enclosed grounds of our own, and direct access (just a step outside the front gate) onto open moorland. It provides the perfect location for a school or youth group residential with both indoor and camping options. With grounds that remain in a natural state (as much as possible), it provides a great space for both outdoor activities and environmental studies.
Every year The Broadleas Charitable Trust sponsors a free residential week for a deserving group. This allows children from disadvantaged backgrounds, caring for a loved one or, living with a medical condition to stay as guests of the charity.
Discounts are also available for specific youth organisations and other charities, please contact us and we will happily discuss the options avilable.
The centre is situated close to Haytor Rocks on the eastern fringe of Dartmoor, approximately mid-way between Widecombe-in-the-Moor and Bovey Tracey.
