  • My very nervous 10-year-old did two days at Skern Lodge recently with his best friend: a Surf Day and Surf & Body Boarding and River Kayaking Day in the same week. Both children are very bright, but o...  more »

  • Skern Lodge was a great place to go with our school. We did most of the activities and I loved every second. The food wasn't great but that didn't matter, the sea was cold and it was a long walk from ...  more »
  • Really good place for activities and stay for groups between the ages 10 - 19 years old. Very friendly staff and excellent facilities. Spent three days of both water based activities and land based with 18/19 year olds who loved it. Added bonus of having private pool sessions.
  • I stayed here for 4 days and really enjoyed my stay. The room was reasonably sized and we were lucky enough to have an very nice en suite. The food was much better than expected and I was pleasantly surprised at the range of dishes as both breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with both vegetarian and halal options. The staff also provided lots of information into what allergens each dish might contain. At breakfast there was a full English breakfast available, with a veggie option, a wide selection of cereals and yougurts and toast. Lunch consisted to two rolls of your choice, ranging from turkey, to beef, to jam and sausage, to name a few. You also received multiple 'extras', such as fruit, crisps and cereal bars. At dinner, there was often 3 or even 4 options to choose from, which was great, and a wide choice of salads. The shop/bar was slightly expensive but the 'bartender' was very nice. There was also lots of other leisure activities available in the evenings, such as table tennis, giant Jenga, pool and table football. The staff were extremely friendly and everyone really liked them. Overall, I would definitely recommend it.
  • I had the opportunity to visit this place twice while studying Public Services course with OCVC/City of Oxford College and I have to say the tutors we been given here are outstanding.They absolutely love what they are doing and it was clearly visible to all of us. We had a wonderful time when we had opportunities to get some ''Boots on the ground experience'' with a majority of different activities which was entertaining.
  • Excellent outdoor activity centre. They can cater for individuals or large groups of people whether it be families, schools etc. You can try surfing, kayaking, abseiling, archery, assault course, climbing, high ropes, zip wire, rafting, swimming, orienteering, tunnels, crate stacking the list goes on! There is on site residential stay and they can even cater for birthday parties, stag/hen do's and even wedding receptions!
  • Hosting a group of 90 young people for 5 days is no easy task. The staff and facilities at skern lodge are outstanding and make it look easy.
