Powdermills Bunkhouse

Powdermills Bunkhouse is a huge success – it has been virtually full since it was opened in February 1998. It is ideal for groups who wish to walk on Dartmoor or for kayaking groups wishing to tackle the white water rivers over the winter.

Many of Spirit of Adventure’s course participants elect to stay in the bunkhouse. All you need to bring is towels, your sleeping bag (or duvet and sheets) plus a pillow.

There are beautiful views across the North and South Moors and there is an excellent choice of local inns and restaurants within 5 miles. Powdermills Bunkhouse is an ideal venue for individuals or groups.
