The Exmoor Centre is a remote residential centre in the Hoaroak valley near Lynton & Lynmouth where young people and families can enjoy being in the heart of Exmoor.

The Bunk House Area is sectioned off so that most of the grounds will remain wild; there is a securely fenced area bordering the river which is the site of the bunkhouse itself.
ST MARY LYNCOMBE EXMOOR TRUST, own the property and became a registered Charity in 2009. Its purpose is to manage and conserve the area and to provide the opportunity of staying on Exmoor in an isolated situation.
As Trustees we must apply the income of the charity “to promote the physical and mental well-being of children, young people, families and adults through the provision of outdoor experience within the National Park of Exmoor”. Established under the will of Dora Cartwright-Williams, it was her wish to see a centre for young people in the Hoaroak Valley in memory of her husband and their life together on Exmoor. Their home in the valley was swept away in the floods that engulfed Lynmouth in August of 1952. The Centre was originally financed and built by the Parent Teacher Association of Ilfracombe Grammar School and opened in 1968.
Today, the Trustees work hard to secure funding to offer Children, Young People and Families the opportunity to experience the Great Outdoors on Exmoor National Park based at Exmoor Centre...
