About Us


Aims and Objectives:

  1. To provide an opportunity to experience the countryside in the south west through weekly walks in Devon and beyond.
  2. To create a friendly atmosphere, both on walks and other social events around Exeter.
  3. To provide walks further afield on our two annual weekends away.

Interested in exploring the lovely countryside in the South West?

If so then here is your chance!

The Out Of Doors Society is open to all students of any age who want to enjoy the outdoors. We organise weekly Saturday walks in the Devon, Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset countryside, including trips to Dartmoor, Exmoor, the Quantocks, the Mendips and the Jurassic Coast.

We also hold a couple of weekends away throughout the year - previous trips have been to the Brecon Beacons, Lands End, Perranporth, Swanage, and many more!

OODS arrange travel, whether by private coach, bus, national rail, minibus or even steam train! We plan routes to take in the best of the scenery and aim to return you to Exeter in time for tea. Walks are chosen to be within the capabilities of everyone and generally range from six to ten miles (nine to sixteen kilometres). We always aim to finish our walks in an interesting town with good pubs, and if possible we allow time to sample these local pubs and look around the town.

If you're up for a challenge then you'll enjoy our 30 mile sponsored walk from Torquay to Exeter - a great way of raising money for charity :)

Also look forward to BBQs on the beach and some exciting socials.

So if you love to go a-wandering with a knapsack on your back, why not don your walking boots, pack your weak lemon drink and come walking with the OODS.

Download our walks list for the year here, and search for "Out of Doors" on the Events List for details of each walk.
