I Love Nature CIC

We believe passionately that a relationship with nature is crucial for our health, happiness and well-being, and that people are more likely to care for the natural world if they spend time enjoying it. 

At I Love Nature we provide a variety of activities and experiences that help people build long-term relationships with the natural world. These can be play-based, like family fun days, community projects, celebrations and school activities, or research and consultancy. We also provide both onsite and offsite training for professionals who work with children and welcome invitations for collaborative partnerships in social and/or environmental projects.

As a registered Community Interest Company (CIC No: 10598376), our profits are used to support our social and environmental aims. This means that surplus income is ploughed back into the company and is used to support activities and projects that provide a range of nature-based opportunities for marginalised groups of people.

Where to go

I Love Nature CIC
Marke Valley
Upton Cross
PL14 5AU

Situated at Marke Valley, an 11-acre site on the edge of Bodmin moor, I Love Nature provide for a range of onsite facilities, including a barn, woodland covered area, outside cooking area and a small copse and a 60' deep mineshaft - but don't worry, it's surrounded by a large wall. We have a composting toilet in an old horsebox and a fully accessible changing place toilet in an old piggery. There are animals onsite, including pigs and alpaca.

We have direct access onto Bodmin moor with footpaths to Minions, Crows Nest and historic landmarks like the Hurlers, Daniel Gumb's Cave, Rillaton Barrow, the Cheesewring Quarry and Sharp Tor. And just a five-minute walk from our site is Sterts Arts Centre – a moorland theatre under canvas.

At I Love Nature we cater for families and groups (max 40). Limited parking is available for cars and minibuses only.
