Most of Taste the wild’s courses run in our private woodland on the beautiful vale of York in North Yorkshire. The site is just 5 miles from the A1 making it within easy reach of many major routes.

We venture to both East and West to run coastal foraging courses. Sandy shores and saltmarsh in Flookburgh, Cumbria and rocky foreshores and cliffs in Staithes and Robin Hood’s Bay, North Yorkshire.
