If you were beginning to think that our location was unbelievably good for outdoor activities then the fact that we are five minutes away from Pridhamsleigh Caverns should confirm this! It is approximately 1.1 kilometres in length with a total depth of just over 50 m including Prid II.
Pridhamsleigh is a great site for novice cavers. It has a large variety of passages which lends itself to longer explorations. Due to the nature of the connecting and non connecting overlapping passages in the cave, surveys (maps) of the cave are hard to interpret. The cave contains ‘The Lake’, a large elongated pool, which has been dived to discover a second chamber, with no passages leading off it. This chamber is the biggest in Devon and is named Gerry’s Chamber after its discoverer, the late Gerry Pritchard.
Perfect for your first caving experience, the activity is suitable for anyone with sufficient mobility. Those of you with a pre-conception of caving as being small tunnels and tight squeezes will be blown away by the caving in South Devon, particularly the church sized Bishop’s Chamber but if you do like a squeeze then we can always find you a challenge!
We provide transport from Holne Park and all specialist equipment including an overall. You need to wear your bathing costume underneath and ideally a pair of fleecy jogging pants and jumper with a thermal top. If you have your own wellies then bring them along.
Caving in South Devon is an ideal activity for a family adventure, birthday treat, school outing, corporate challenge, stag or hen party activity. Groups, individuals, adults, children, special needs, whatever your age or ability we have plenty of excitement install for you.
Dartmoor is a wonderful place for both groups and individuals to climb. Many of the granite tors scattered across Dartmoor offer a range of routes, including some challenging ones. Bouldering opportunities also exist on Dartmoor. We offer various opportunities for learning the basic skills of climbing, but we also have some good climbing for those individuals who want to go out independently.
Many of the granite Tors for which the National Park is famous offer both challenging routes and exciting bouldering opportunities amongst some of the wildest countryside in the south west.
Due to our location on the edge of Dartmoor we are spoilt for choice with several popular rock climbing locations with routes of varying degrees of difficulty, all within half an hour’s drive. For introductory climbing sessions we tend to use Leigh Tor, Dewerstone or Chudleigh.
This activity is suitable for persons of all ages and the participants will learn the basics of climbing and abseiling including belaying, technique and some rope work. We provide transport from the River Dart Country Park and all safety equipment. participants need to wear clothing suitable to the weather expected but this should be with long sleeves, trousers and securely laced trainers.
Rock climbing is great for groups wanting to work on Team Building skills. It gives a confidence boost facing real challenges and proves to gain trust amongst colleagues. Come along to boost team relationships or just a fun day out of the office.
Anything but pampering… climb to the top of a pole while attached to a rope then jump off and attempt to touch a swinging ball. It looks easy when you’re on the ground!
Walk along horizontal telegraph poles set high up in the trees. The key word in the last sentence is definitely ‘high’ but you’ll be secured by a rope controlled by the rest of your group!
Canoeing / Kayaking
Have a go at navigating canoes and kayaks around our lake & play games to test your skills.

We went rock climbing on Dartmoor with CRS adventures, really good value and great, personal service from our instructor Zach. We also did the (very) High Ropes course, kayaking on the lake and zip wire, all were great.
