Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Pixies Holt Outdoor Centre, Yelverton, Devon, sleeps 24-40 in 8 bedrooms.

Accommodation is warm and comfortable sleeping 35 in bedrooms of 4-6 beds with en-suite hand basins. We offer a large common room with small kitchenette for group use, a separate dining room and modern toilet and showers facilities. Set in approx. 2 acres of private grounds there is a pond and a mixture of Dartmoor fauna and flora. There is ample parking for cars and minibuses.

The centre is fully catered and has the Healthy Schools award. We use local produce wherever possible buying meat from the local butcher, bread from the local baker and vegetables and fruit from a traditional wholesale greengrocer. Our cooks provide a full cooked breakfast, we provide you with all the ingredients for making healthy packed lunches and at the end of the day the cooks produce delicious evening meals such as roasts, curries, lasagne etc. followed by traditional puddings such as fruit crumble and custard!

Outdoor Learning activities are offered by our own team of skilled Outdoor Education Tutors along with specialist partner providers such as Dartmoor National Park Rangers and Guides. We offer a range of programs that have been developed over recent years in partnership with visiting groups. We think these reflect the needs of groups and offer value for money whilst having clear outdoor learning aims.

Pixies Holt is available to hire for Schools, youth or community groups and other organised groups. During the school summer term and busy periods we ask groups to also book one of our Outdoor Learning programs. At other times you may book just the accommodation or accommodation and activities.
