About us

We are an outdoor activity and development centre based in North Devon.  Established in 1976, Skern Lodge provides education, learning and fun through adventure. 

We are an independent, privately owned organisation committed to the highest standards in all aspects of the business.  Situated on the edge of the quiet coastal village of Appledore, Skern is set within 22 acres of our own grounds with the tidal waters of the estuary on the
doorstep, we are in the perfect location.
