Dartmoor adventures by train

This article is more than 2 years old.

Take the Dartmoor Line to Okehampton (just 40 minutes from Exeter) and try outdoor activities for families and groups right from the station.

Adventure Okehampton is based at the Youth Hostel next to the station. They offer bike or minibus transport to activities including:

Other options including archery, bushcraft and more – see their full list of activities.

Booking ahead is essential so that transport to and from the activity can be arranged. Book online for small groups (up to 6 people) or enquire direct for larger groups.

Adventure Okehampton is happy to coordinate pick up and drop off times with your train arrival and departure times – contact them to get started.
