Schools Coastal Walking
We are right on the North Cornwall coast path and are spoilt for choice for fabulous walks. These can be anything from an easy stroll to walking on challenging terrain crossing breathtaking valleys with steep climbs.
The section of coast path south of our centre is one of the most awe-inspiring stretches of the North Cornwall coast path. It is totally remote and you feel as though you are in another part of the world and in a true wilderness environment.
There’s lots of opportunity to descend down into the rugged coves beneath and explore. We walk it one way and get collected in minibuses the other end – you’ll deserve the lift home!
Other sections going north are flatter and easier walking, however still enjoying spectacular views. Often below you will see dolphins and basking sharks or if you’re lucky see a Peregrine falcon.
Coastal Walking locations
The Centre to Bude. About a one hour walk on easy terrain passing the beautiful Black rock and Widemouth Bay beaches and then up on to higher ground above the Upton slabs to Bude looking out over the ocean towards Lundy Island
The Centre to Crackington Haven. The stretch from our Centre to Crackington Haven is about a 3 hour walk and well known as a classic section of the North Cornish Coast Path. Miles from civilisation with unbelievable views, wildlife and geology this walk takes your breath away. En-route to Crackington you pass above many secret coves where you can imagine the Cornish Wreckers use to lure the ships to their fate and then steal their bounty, hauling it up the cliffs and away! You also pass the stunted oak forest of Dizzard with weird fully mature trees in minature. The adventurous can descend down to some amazing untouched beaches.
