For some folk, a happy holiday does not involve cocktails, a pool, a sun lounger and all the other buzzwords of lazing about in swimwear. These folk much prefer swinging from ropes, clambering up walls, splashing through water and generally hurling themselves around, upping adrenaline so much that the subsequent Monday morning commute feels like a stroll in the park.

If this sounds like you, we’ll bet our climbing rope (or poolside cocktail) that you’ll like the campsite attached to Okehampton Youth Hostel, an activity centre on the edge of Dartmoor with all sorts of outdoor adventures for all ages arranged on site, and with the walking and biking of Dartmoor all around (bikes – and tandems! – are available for hire at the hostel).

You and your small adventurers can have a go at mountain boarding, archery and scaling the climbing wall or ropes, with watersports including surfing, gorge scrambling, kayaking and canoeing on offer at the hostel’s private lake; true headers for heights can also have a go at the Big Oke Abseil.

Once you stagger back to base, the level grass pitches at Okehampton are in the grounds of the youth hostel which has been converted from a Victorian railway shed and recently updated. All tenty types have full use of the facilities including showers, loos, free wifi, TV and games rooms and a self-catering kitchen.

If all the adrenaline above sounds a tad too much, plenty of peeps come to Okehampton for a chillsome time too: there are activities like walks, craft and quiz nights and campfire nights laid on in the evenings, or you could go for proper Devon downtime in the on-site licensed restaurant to demolish locally sourced food, local beers and cider.
