A party of us turned up not really knowing what to expect and we ended up having one of the best nights we've had. We threw axes and lit fires, drunk tea and are sausages. Spanner & Hammy, our instructors were both really easy company. I'm ex forces myself and am not readily taken in by these sort of things... More

My wife and I are Cub Scout Leaders and so are interested in bushcraft activities especially anything we can adapt for our Cubs. Spanner and the team are ex-service men and women. They are friendly, hospitable, and very knowledable. They can handle any and all questions. We tried most things and enjoyed watching the faces of the younger visitors as... More

Myself and my two boys, aged 9 and 12, attended a charity open day. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The taster activities included axe throwing, trap setting, knife skills, fire lighting, rabbit preparation, and a manhunt. The day was marked a definite 10/10, with both boys wanting to return soon. Highly recommended 😁

Have just spent 2 nights at Footsteps of Discovery with 7 and 8 year old children. We learnt basic fire lighting, played team building games, tree climbing, axe throwing, archery and even got to watch movies at night. Hammy and John were great instructors, making everyone feel very welcome and safe. A great experience and a great place for all... More

Took a group of 20 cadets and adults on a weekend survival and bush craft training exercise. All had a fantastic time enjoying all activities including the preparation of game and shelter building.

A great place to go and learn about the outdoors and bushcraft. Have been several times, once for a charity survival weekend and a few occasions for the Cornwall RV. The staff are friendly and extremely knowledgeable and I challenge anyone to go there and not become more informed about the outdoors and bushcraft.

My son went here for a survival day with a group of siblings from Little Harbour. The three men running it knew their stuff and the health and safety on site is great. He particularly enjoyed the axe throwing !!!

They are a pleasure to be with and they take care of all catering!! We will be long standing visitors to Trenoweth Woods.
