Welcome to Skern Lodge

Welcome to Skern Lodge! We have an outstanding staff team and a well-equipped residential centre. We believe our strength lies in the fact that we are open to all groups, with different aims and needs, and this means we individually plan and deliver the best programme for each one. Choose the section of our website below which matches your interest and when you’re ready, get in touch. We welcome hearing from you, and hope to see you for an enjoyable and memorable experience.

Schools and Colleges

Our schools and college programmes are tailored to meet your needs, not just with the wide range of activities and providing a whole lot of fun, but in meeting your students academic requirements. Whether it's Key stage 2, GCSE PE or a National Diploma in Public Services, our tutors are skilled and experienced to deliver to your needs.

Time spent at Skern Lodge develops young people's personal and social skills. Team building, problem solving, communication, combined with the range of exciting activities, gives young people the best experience they can have. Add the residential aspect to this and their time spent living and working together enhances their development even further. Skills not only valuable in the classroom, playground and on the sports field, but also in the workplace in the future.

Adventure Days and Weeks

We have a variety of options to suit children and adults alike. Come for a morning, afternoon or full day. Join as few or as many sessions as you like, you can even arrange to stay over for a few nights and pick and choose, subject to availability.

Training and Development

Skern Lodge has been providing a range of development training programmes, events and activities for over 30 years, and have worked with a wide range of companies and organisations. Programmes are mainly run from our residential centre, but can be run near you or in your chosen location with careful planning.

Our aim is to provide excellence in courses and services, to meet clients needs. We focus on good communication and relationship building as the means of developing value, profitability and growth - for your company and our own.

We believe that success for any business relies on the attitudes and skills of its people, and that these can be developed with a practical approach, to the benefit of the individual and company alike.

Field Studies

Skern Lodge Field Studies Centre provides tailor-made geography and environmental fieldwork courses in North Devon. Residential courses can be designed in conjunction with visiting staff to ensure all of your educational needs from Key Stage 2 through to AS/A2 Level are met.

The field studies centre is situated in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and is inside the internationally recognised UNESCO Biosphere of Braunton Burrows. Our fieldwork sites are ideally situated throughout this area to maximise these unrivalled resources. Our programmes can include days investigating the process and landforms on the Heritage Coast of Hartland, the diversity of sand dune ecosystems at Braunton Burrows to studying fluvial processes on Exmoor National park. With such outstanding field sites we can build a course to suit.

The centre offers residential geography fieldwork courses with full tuition at all levels from Key Stage to A Level, where experienced and enthusiastic staff can deliver your programme.
