English plus Walking

This is for you if you like being outdoors in the nature, walking and hiking. Our course combines 15 hours of General English in the mornings with an intensive walking programme with one of our local guides in and around Totnes, the beautiful South Devon coast and the English Riviera,  Dartmoor National Park and the rugged North Cornwall coast.

We use public transport as much as we can to protect our environment.  Where we do need to use a car or coach, we offset our carbon footprint through , for example, planting trees.

Where can I stay in Totnes?


Kizzy, our Homestay Officer- "I'm always happy to help- come and see me in the office"

You can choose to stay with local host families offering half board standard  (single room, shared bathroom) or executive (single room, own bathroom) accommodation, or we can recommend one of the many excellent bed and breakfasts in the area. Our accommodation is situated either in Totnes, Dartington, or in the charming seaside town of nearby Paignton.  At lunchtime, you can step out of our building and into a High St offering excellent, independent small restaurants and cafes serving organic and locally sourced food a matter of minutes from the school.
