Youth Weekends at Beam House

A residential adventure centre that your youth group will love – especially if you’re looking for some great surfing and boarding!

Beam House is close to the beach and surf school at Westward Ho!, near Bideford in North Devon.

The centre itself is set in a beautiful wooded valley bordered on three sides by the River Torridge. A popular walk along part of the South West Coast Path from Abbotsham gives groups an ideal opportunity to explore the spectacular coastline.

There’s plenty to do on centre too. There are zip wires, climbing towers, high ropes courses and plenty of other thrilling adventure activities available for a fun, action-packed day.

You’ll find a warm welcome as you retreat to your comfortable accommodation before a full evening programme of activities to keep everyone entertained.
