Embercombe is a fifty acre smallholding situated in the Teign Valley, seven miles from Exeter. It comprises twenty acres of broadleaf woodland, beautiful, south facing meadows, an extensive organic vegetable garden, orchards and a wildlife lake.

The abundant wildlife includes several endangered species such as the rare Fritillary butterfly and dormice.

In the grounds we have:
• A large indoor conference room/workshop
• A dining room and kitchen
• Showers and toilets
• A woodland classroom
• Two yurt villages accommodating up to 60 people

As an educational facility Embercombe offers a wide range of experiential learning opportunities. Children and young people can participate in bespoke programmes where horticulture, bushcraft, farming, crafts, science projects, cooking, leadership, sustainability, personal development, team-building, and many more activities are approached in an age and curriculum appropriate way.

Please use the tabs at the top of the page to find out more about our programmes for the various stages of learning.
