BF Adventure

BF Adventure is a charity in Cornwall which specialises in adventurous activities to suit all ages and abilities. We are based on a beautiful 60-acre site with woodland walks, sea views and accessible trails.

We offer a wide range of activities but our real passion is in enabling people of all ages and abilities to challenge themselves and grow in confidence. We have a friendly team of dedicated and passionate staff who are skilled in supporting our guests.

The Goodygrane site, on the outskirts of Falmouth and Penryn, originated as a series of granite quarries. Now flooded, these enable us to provide a safe setting for water based activities including canoeing, kayaking and wild swimming. The surrounding rock faces offer climbing and abseiling opportunities to suit people of all abilities. The Adventure Quarry, packed with problem solving activities, is designed to build team work, communication skills and confidence. We also have a zip line and a low ropes course, sensory trail and several forest school settings. All activities are fully accessible and we can link with the Includer network to support those who would benefit from one to one support.

BF Adventure is committed to making sure that our guests have a fun filled and memorable experience. Our real passion is in enabling people of all ages to develop their aspirations, self-confidence, resilience and self-esteem. The activities we provide are led by well qualified and multi-skilled instructors with the passion to use their outdoor education skills to enable people to facilitate change.

We are approved and accredited by the Adventure Activity Licensing Authority, ‘Learn Outside the Classroom’, and Matrix. We have also achieved the Eefo quality standard for young people friendly services so you can be sure that our service offers appropriate confidentiality and safeguarding experience.
