Over 20 years experience of offering fun, exhilarating and

challenging activities for all ages

Quad Bike Safari 

North Devon quad biking for all ages & abilities

200 acres of woodland, tracks, trails, water splashes and open fields (with views to Wales on the best days). It’s all yours to explore with our Quad Bike Safari, and it’s what makes us one of North Devon’s best attractions.

From our off-road activity centre in Ilfracombe, we offer the choice between an adrenaline-fuelled ride around the farm for those more experienced, or taking the scenic route with a slower ride to take in the sights and sounds of the wildlife. We cater for all ages and abilities with routes to suit everyone. After a comprehensive safety briefing and instruction session, it’s time to ride!


This is an enclosed, inflatable track for 6 and 8 years old, so they can learn a new skill and get a taste for adventure. If they’re able – and if time is on our side – they can even try out the tyre track…

The NOVICE Ride 

Suitable for thrill-seekers of 8 years old and above. After training and tuition, we head out onto the farm. We head up winding tracks and trails onto the flatter fields, down the toboggan run to the ‘Bog’, hit the water splash, through the open fields with those beautiful views over to Wales, before heading down the stream track back to base to finish.

The SKILL Ride

It gets wild on the Skill Ride. For those 10 years and over, after you’ve mastered the novice (which is included), you can climb back to the top of the farm to the small Table Top, S Bends, Challenging Terrain, Water Splashes, before with the Woodland Dipper home. 


Are you brave enough?! After completing both the Novice and Skill rides (included), you’ll go up the sheep run before traversing across the side of the valley, up and down the drops and finally The Big Hill! Warning: not for the faint hearted.

320 Sport Bikes

For the ultimate fun and adventure, upgrade to these 320cc Sport bikes. They’re automatic, powerful quads, which you can hire for an extra £10. Terms and conditions apply – no under 18s are permitted to ride and all breakages must be paid for.)

Land Rover Experience

Off-road driving experience in North Devon

Take a 4×4 journey over our 200 acres of challenging terrain in the best vehicle for the job – the Land Rover Discovery. You’ll be safe in the hands of one of our talented off-road drivers, gaining awesome new skills and bettering your knowledge of driving off-road. 

You’ll go out for 30-45 minutes. The course is designed to test your ability and will get harder the further you get. Don’t worry, if you ever don’t feel comfortable or the instructor feels a certain area may be too challenging, they’ll take over and drive for you (though this rarely happens.)

Terms apply – to drive, you must hold a full driving license. Up to 3 passengers can travel with each driver. If you don’t have a driving license, one of our instructors can drive up to 4 passengers.

Jump in and hold on tight, it’s sure to be a white knuckle ride!

Axe Throwing

Unique days out in North Devon

An added activity to provide great fun and a unique experience that’s hard to find elsewhere, this new craze is a different way to put your throwing skills to the test. Whether just for fun, or using our points system to bring out your competitive side, let’s see how good your aim really is.

The axes provided are professional throwing axes; Tomahawks, or Mousehawks for the slightly smaller people. We have 3 targets which are marked with points and get harder as you go, so you’ll quickly learn that there is a technique – it’s not ‘just’ throwing an axe!

For a great deal and your best North Devon day out, book Quad Biking and Axe Throwing together and get Axe Throwing for £12.50 per person by applying the code QBAXE in the coupon box at checkout.
