Accessible family foraging on the North Coast of Cornwall
Portreath is a small pretty harbour town, with a beautiful sandy beach, rock pools and cliffs. The foraging starts semi urban as we follow the banks of a stream in town and down to the beach. The walk will take in hedgerow, stream side and seashore foraging. A great way for the whole family to discover accessible wild food. There are plenty of amenities near the beach, toilets, cafe's, local shops and pubs. Free parking can be found on the main road towards the beach and there is a beach side car park. Sorry no dogs allowed on the beach. Wild nibbles and a cooking demo included.
Meeting Place Heading into Portreath just past Costcutter and the Portreath Bakery on the left hand side we meet by the Anchor and bus stop.
