The Centre is less than 20 miles from Exeter and Taunton. It can be
reached in under an hour from Torbay and from Dorchester. Bristol is only 70 miles away.
The Centre is located in a secluded wooded valley within the parish of Offwell which lies
in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
This quiet rural village is located just to the south of the A35, 4
miles from the town of Honiton. Coaches travelling from Honiton should turn right
off the A35 at the first sign to Offwell village. This turning is clearly sign posted at
the top of the hill about 2 miles from Honiton.
Coaches travelling west along the A35 from Axminster must use
this turning which is on the left, after the Windmill Garage, a Texaco petrol station.
Please do not take any earlier turnings to the village! On entering the village go
straight past the church and telephone box. After about 150 metres, and ignoring the
entrance to the village playing fields, pull in immediately where the lane widens on the
left hand side. Please do not try to take coaches into the playing fields. Coaches should
be parked so that passengers can enter the playing fields via the pedestrian gate which
opens onto the lane. Assemble here, you will be met by a member of staff. The Centre is
reached by walking down the hill past the church and across a field.
The cost of a visit is £4.00 per pupil for up to 50 pupils. For 51 or
more the cost is £5.00 per pupil. Note there is a minimum charge of £50.
There is no charge for any accompanying staff. There are toilets on site and two

take all your rubbish away! To Book, telephone 01404 831373.
By arrangement minibuses and private vehicles may drive into the Centre.
Please telephone for details and condition of entry. There is no charge. Please note that

"Countryside for All" scheme.
