Carnyorth Centre Information

Our residential activity Centre is situated in West Cornwall between St Just and Pendeen. The Centre is spacious and colourful with attractive grounds and friendly staff. It is situated in a fantastic location near the coastal footpath where old mining buildings perch on the granite cliffs and the breaking waves roll against the rocks. To the rear pf the Centre you will find wild moorland where ancient Tors and Bronze Age stone circles and artefacts can be found. 

Originally built in 1893 as a village school for the mining families, it is has been converted to large dormitory accommodation.
