Half-term Adventures 2019

Whilst half-term is just a week, it does give the option of a short UK break away from home learning new skills and engaging in new activities as a family.

If you're thinking of a holiday in May, well it's a good time for Bluebells in the woodlands around Devon. Bluebells surround the slopes at YHA Okehampton Bracken Tor, so you don't even have to go away from the venue to see the stunning blues offering a photographers dream location.

May Half-term: Friday 25th May to Sunday 2nd June 2019

Alternatively, October half-term brings the oranges, reds and yellows of the leaves turning on the trees, and late afternoon brings beautiful colour to the woodlands that surround Dartmoor. It's still a great time to get out on the moors for our adventure packages, so why not book your autumn adventure in Devon.

October Half-term: Friday 18th October to Sunday 27th October 2019
