Colehayes Park was established as a Field Study Centre in 1970 and has been providing excellent facilities to Primary School’s, 6th Form Colleges and University’s in a relaxed and comfortable environment ever since.
Colehayes Park is located just outside Bovey Tracey within Dartmoor National Park. All age ranges are welcome from Primary Schools to Universities, whether it is to be a first residential trip with fun activities or for educational fieldwork, Colehayes is a great base for all. We are ideally suited for parties to study Geography, Geology, Environmental Sciences and Biology. Most groups study Dartmoor, the Torbay coastline, the River Dart and tributaries and local farming etc.
In the near vicinity there is an extraordinary variety of landscape and habitat, the granite uplands, the sands, lignite and clays of the Bovey Basin and the shales, gritscherts and limestone of the surrounding area provide great contrast. Prehistoric remains abound on the Moor and evidence of Bronze Age man can be easily found.
