About Porthpean Outdoor Education Centre (Cornwall Outdoors)

The Centre has its own onsite indoor climbing wall and outdoor high ropes course and is skilled and equipped to provide water-based and land-based outdoor activities throughout the year for all ages and abilities. Most activities take place within easy walking distance of the Centre. In the summer months the Porthpean Centre transforms yet again into a buzzing camp for activity seeking groups where staff provide hands-on outward bound educational activities.

New for 2019: the Centre will be installing six new camping pods as accommodation onto our popular village A by the high ropes. So for those seeking a little bit more comfort ensure that you ask about their ‘mini log cabins’ for your 2019 booking.
