The breaks include two nights’ accommodation, all food (arrival day supper to final day lunch) and guide/tuition. All under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult.
The accommodation at our Pinkery Centre is predominantly bunk rooms with capacity for between 4-6 people. Each bunk room has its own en-suite shower room with W.C. You/your group will have exclusive use of a bunk room. There are communal areas including a large common room, classroom, dining room, drying and boot room. The centre is basic but has heating, hot water and electricity generated on site and provides a stunning location to escape the everyday.
The Pinkery Centre is set in the heart of Exmoor National Park between the villages of Challacombe and Simonsbath. It is accessible by car, minibus or coach and has ample free parking. Even though the two villages are fairly close, with the breath-taking views around the centre you will feel like intrepid moorland explorers!
Exmoor is a designated International Dark Sky Reserve and has some of the darkest skies in the country. The Pinkery Centre is located within the core dark sky zone – so on a clear night you will be amazed by the thousands of stars you can see, even with the naked eye.
Lynton and Lynmouth, on the coast, are the nearest towns (approx. 13 miles) with a good choice of shops, cafés, pubs, restaurants and places to visit, including the National Park Centre.
