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 !!!

We have spent three years going down to see the lads at Footsteps, every professional, friendly and with high expectations of the students. They are a pleasure to be with and they take care of all catering!! We will be long standing visitors to Trenoweth Woods. If you want a reasonably priced, exciting, fulfilling survival experience for any age, give... More

Ten pupils and eight staff spent three days with Mark, Spanner and Ross in the woods. We learnt a wide range of practical skills which were imparted with patience, enthusiasm and expertise! After lots of effort making shelters from natural materials, we camped out overnight and had an amazing time! I'm sure this is the first of many trips to... More

I went with a mixed group of adults and children from a College in Cheltenham. The team at Footsteps of Discovery could not have done more to create a wonderful learning experience for all and the hours just slipped by. From axe throwing to skinning a rabbit we all learned a little about nature and a lot more about ourselves.... More

I have proviously visited Footsteps of Discovery but was completely blown away by the transformation at their site. Spanner and Mark with the assistance of KP put on a weekend for 30 Army Reservists, using their skill and knowledge to hit the right pitch for all levels of abilility and always with genuine passion and a little humour. I and... More
