About Beam House

Beam House has an exciting range of adventure activities to keep your Cubs and Scouts occupied and having fun, plus a supervised evening entertainment programme every day run by our centre team. Alternatively, you are free to use the centre facilities and organise your own evening programme.

The centre is situated in its own grounds in a beautiful wooded valley surrounded on three sides by the River Torridge. A popular walk along part of the South West Coast Path from Abbotsham gives groups an ideal opportunity to explore the spectacular coastline.

Accommodation in the mansion house is in dormitories with toilets and showers nearby.
