Calvert Trust Exmoor Experiences
Everyone who visits our centre in North Devon enjoys a real experience with us, creating memories and a story to come away with!
Experiences such as:
- The joys of participating in our activities and using the facilities during a first-time visit
- Overcoming a seemingly impossible personal challenge
- Making new friends and seeing new Devon sights
- Spending time with family in a stimulating but relaxed environment
We all see the world in different ways, and our guests come to us for many reasons – it all adds up to unique and personal Calvert Trust Exmoor Experiences for each guest.
We’d love to hear your Calvert Trust Exmoor Experiences over social media
Let us know about the activities you did, the joys and achievements you felt, and the memories you have of your time with us.
Here are some Calvert Trust Exmoor Experiences we’ve received in the past for some inspiration:
The Gee family, including young Lucas who has Global Development Delay and Sensory Processing Disorder…
“Lucas loved everything, especially the horses and crate stack. We all enjoyed it together. It was brilliant to have an opportunity to do something different together that we wouldn’t normally get to do.
His face lit up doing the different activities, although he’s non-verbal we could see he was enjoying it, he was very smiley and laughed a lot. Since coming back from Calvert Trust Exmoor, Lucas has seemed more ‘chilled’; we are already planning our next trip to the centre!”
Claire visited with her son Scott who has Autism…
“We both relaxed, and it allowed us to rebuild our relationship. It felt very safe there. We are both more positive, with lots of ideas to try, and a changed approach to life.”
Sally, her son Adam and her partner Mark. Adam has Corpus Callosum (ACC), Global Developmental Delay, sensory processing difficulties, and physical difficulties. He is also non-verbal…
“We hadn’t had a holiday for years; we struggle to find anything Adam can do, and end up just doing the same things we would do at home but in a different place! Adam loves being outdoors and he’s a bit of an adrenaline junkie, so Calvert Trust Exmoor sounded ideal for him.
I can’t put into words how much this break has meant to us, we had the most amazing week. Adam did activities we never thought possible and we have shared so many special moments that I will treasure forever; being in a sailing boat, alone with just Adam with no restraints or chair, was very special.
It is truly a very special place, somewhere we could be ourselves and celebrate Adam’s differences instead of apologising for them.”
Derek and Elaine, husband and wife. Derek, who is in his 80s, has had Vascular Dementia for several years…
“Our first activity at Calvert Trust Exmoor was the horses; from the moment we went into the stables Derek woke up, was interactive and able to hold conversations, and loved every second of his time with the horses.
We had a wonderful week and were ‘on a high’ when we left; it was wonderful to have some time together as husband and wife again, rather than just being his carer.
It was like I had suddenly got the old Derek back. I think this stimulation of being at Calvert Trust Exmoor unlocked something and restored some of his brain function.”
