Woodland Valley is set in Ladock Parish, situated in the very centre of Cornwall UK. It is an organic farm with a residential study centre and group accommodation.
It is located in a beautiful, secluded valley and includes ancient woodland, ponds, streams, and wetland. Originally a part of the Trethurffe Estate (mentioned in the Domesday Book), the farm has been owned by the Jones family since 1960 and is managed on sustainable lines growing fantastic Organic Produce available from our Farm Shop.
Chris and Janet Jones are promoting the farm as an outdoor classroom founded on the themes of conservation and sustainability. This resource is ideal for teaching mainstream subjects such as Geography and Science as well as traditional farming and countryside management skills.
Our location in the centre of Cornwall UK, just 8 miles from Truro and St Austell, and only 20 minutes from Newquay and the Eden Project makes Woodland Valley a perfect setting to spend time in Cornwall.
Needless to say we have a high degree of disabled access, and the theme of social inclusivity runs through all that we do.
Our 4 star rated group accommodation has achieved a prestigious Gold Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme, and can cater for any numbers from a car load to a coach load. It provides a high quality of accommodation and excellent value for money.
We have hosted educational visits from schools and colleges with students of all ages from Key Stage 1 to Post Graduate, including for example Fettes College, Abbots Bromley School for Girls, Brimsham Green Comprehensive and George Salter Academy. During school holidays we also take on youth groups, bands, the International Schools Theatre Association, church groups, retreats and so on. Our clients have come to us from as far afield as Japan, Sweden and the USA, although the bulk are from the UK mainland.
We provide comprehensive training activities, meeting and conference facilities, and have catered for a variety of companies including News International, Buro Happold, and Agusta Westland amongst others.
Private family parties have also enjoyed our hospitality, using our stunning location as a venue for weddings, significant birthdays, family reunions or even just weekend breaks.
For all our range of clients we offer participation in courses, training and workshops, but most importantly sheer enjoyment of our farm and the opportunity to connect the food we eat with the countryside it comes from…
