Welcome to Skern Lodge

Sadly we are currently closed for activities due to lockdown. The office staff are working from home, so please email with all enquiries and we will respond. Thanks  


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

Skern Lodge is 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 its own grounds with the tidal waters and the atlantic surf on the doorstep, we are in the perfect location.
