We are looking forward to seeing you at the Beacon soon!
A stimulating environment where Exmoor meets the coast
With a vista of deep blue sea, rugged beaches and lush green valleys, The Beacon is set in 280 acres on the Lee Abbey estate within Exmoor National Park. The centre overlooks our own private beach, where the rolling moor land changes dramatically to wooded valleys which sweep down to the sea. The Beacon is surrounded by an abundance of wildlife, trees and plants and is approached through the dramatic setting of the Valley of Rocks - home to one of the oldest herds of feral goats in the country. Nearby Lynmouth has a tiny harbour with white-washed thatched cottages in a spectacular location, known as 'Little Switzerland'.
The Beacon was built in 2003 on the site of a former dairy barn complex and the impressive original beams are an integral part of the construction. The Beacon is equipped to a very high standard providing a welcoming and attractive environment for our guests.
For teaching sessions, assembly time and relaxing
The Beacon offers wheelchair access to first floor bedrooms, and all main areas. There is a fully accessible bathroom and shower. In our programme we aim to involve every guest in as much as they feel able to take part in, whatever their physical disability.
Indoor Climbing Our innovative climbing wall – with over 60 square metres of realistic rock face – has been designed to offer a challenge to all levels of climber.
Archery A great activity for all ages. Aim to improve accuracy and hit the target across the sports hall or field.
