Walking in Cornwall

One of the best ways to see the rugged beauty of Cornwall is by foot, so don’t forget to pack your walking boots and sticks before you leave home because there are miles of coastal footpaths along the Cornish Coast. The South West Coast path offers 630 miles of breathtaking scenery around the entire south west coastline and includes Cornwall, Devon, Exmoor and Dorset.  There are 26 suggested sections of the walk in Cornwall so you’re spoilt for choice.

Along the south coast, why not take the path from Coverack to Helford?  This walk will take you through a variety of different landscapes from dramatic clifftops, fishing villages and lush woodland, to beaches, heathland a working quarry, pastures and a creek crossing.  If you fancy the north coast, you could check out the more well-known Cornish places walking from Port Isaac to Padstow.  This walk will take you through some beautiful unspoiled sections of coast, including the remote inlet of Pine Haven.  Views along this walk are spectacular, and whilst the first half is quite strenuous crossing small valleys and winding round exposed headlands, the second part is more of an easy walk and includes a ferry crossing to Padstow.  Whatever your level of ability, there’s a part of the coast path suitable for you, so get on your walking boots and back pack and head off on foot to discover more of beautiful Cornwall.
