Put yourself to the test with some of our team challenges. Adventurers will learn how to navigate with a compass to complete our orienteering course and have a go at our nature-based scavenger hunt.

See if your team can complete the Nettlecombe Olympics!

After a final review of everything we have achieved it will be time to say goodbye.

Get back to nature in the great outdoors and meet some of the wildlife you can find all around you on our Eco Adventure course. It’s time to leave the tablets at home!​

Nettlecombe Court lies in a secluded valley at the eastern edge of Exmoor National Park. The house is a striking example of a Tudor and Georgian country mansion set within its own grounds. The centre has excellent access to the Somerset coast as well as Exmoor National Park and The Quantocks Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The centre is half an hour from Taunton and the motorway network. Taunton railway station is less than two hours from London.
