How to find us

The location

The meeting point for our Salcombe Escape Challenge is the North Sands car park next to The Winking Prawn. A member of the Adventure South team will be waiting on the sea-wall opposite the entrance to the car park as you arrive.

The car park is pay and display and can get very busy during the summer, so if you are staying in Salcombe we recommend walking to North Sands, or use the Park’n Ride service opposite Salcombe petrol station if driving in from out of town. If you have to drive please leave plenty of time before your activity is due to start.

family escape the hills challenge

"Two families took on this challenge (Escape Room but outside) last week with Chris. Great location, open space and a big old challenge. This is tough but achievable and a load of fun. Helped on by a cheery, friendly and top bloke Chris. Great idea and would thoroughly recommend it. We all finished it and felt like heroes!"

outdoor escape challenge

"Absolutely brilliant! The escape the hills tasks were genius and great change to be outside! We could not have asked for a better experience. Scott the owner was fantastic and was so passionate about his business which was lovely to see and made us enjoy the experience even more."


outdoor escape room challenge

"I booked a family group of 11 people, with an age range of 11 to 83, onto the Escape the Hills activity and we all had a superb time. There was something for everyone to do. We were not the speediest problem solvers but the Adventure South team were very encouraging and patient and they were committed to ensuring we had the best possible experience!"
