Accommodation

Our accommodation for the weekend is the stunning YHA Okehampton Bracken Tor, nestled within woodlands on the edge of Dartmoor National Park. Our base for the weekend is set within four acres of landscaped grounds, within walking distance of Okehampton town, with direct access to Dartmoor.

YHA Okehampton Bracken Tor consists of two buildings – a recently converted, arts and crafts detached house and a beautiful, converted hunting lodge – making it the ideal accommodation for our adventure weekend.

Our accommodation for the trip will be in 4-bed and 6-bed dorms, exclusive to our group. If you’re booking with a friend let us know and we’ll make sure you get a room together. 

NOTE: There is car parking at this hostel, but it is limited and there may be other guests parking at the hostel too.

Food

Our meals for the weekend will be prepared on-site at YHA, for breakfast and dinner. Saturday lunch is not included, as we will be out all day, so please bring something to eat for Saturday lunch, such as a packed lunch.
