Running between November & March this is a one night fully catered visit to our Dewerstone Bunkhouse in Dartmoor National Park. Ideal for those on their first residential.
This one night fully catered visit to our Dewerstone Bunkhouse is ideal for those on their first residential. It runs for just over 24 hours, the focus being on, appreciation of the environment, living and working together, easy walking and achievable challenge.
The trips are run from November – March and are excellent value. Without any formal adventurous activities and being in the quieter winter months we have been able to offer this trip at £35.00 (+VAT) per child. This is fully catered and supported by our staff at all times.
We meet at Cadover Bridge and follow the “Pipe Track” to Shaugh Bridge. Depending on the weather we may stop for a picnic lunch.
This route follows the Upper Plym Valley through ancient woodland. The walking is easy, going gently downhill most of the way and is sheltered in all but the worst conditions. We arrive at our cosy Bunkhouse nestling in a valley above the River Meavy. Our luggage will be waiting, ready for the children get settled in. After a short briefing all the children spend time, making up for their beds and personalising them with artwork.
As we are in the hills in winter we have an Alpine theme to our menu. With our take on the hearty French Tartiflette followed by a chocolate fondue. The children get involved in making their own Tartiflette and other preparations for the evening.
After Dinner we will have quiet time for reading or games, followed by a short night walk around the trails close to the bunkhouse. Finally, we end the evening around the blazing wood burner with a hot chocolate.
After a leisurely breakfast, we then pack our bags for the return home. When we are packed, we then have time to play and explore the wild areas around the bunkhouse.
Lunch is freshly baked bread and soup, finally we take a short walk down the Meavy to meet our transport and return home.
