Walks in Cornwall

November 17, 2017

A haven for ramblers, Cornwall not only boasts 300 miles of the infamous South West Coast Path but also over 2400 miles of inland paths. From gentle stretches to steep coastal valleys the paths take in Cornwall’s many diverse landscapes from long sandy beaches and dramatic headlands to sheltered estuaries and colourful moorland.

Here are some of our favourite walks in the county…

Godrevy to Hells Mouth, Nr St Ives – 5 miles

This route along exhilarating cliff-top pathways and glorious ocean ways takes you around the Godrevy Headland to the dramatic Hell’s Mouth and back again. Not far from our development The Carracks this route takes in the wonderful heathland of the Knavocks.

Creek and Cove, Fowey – 5.8 miles

On the doorstep of our development Old Station Master’s House in Fowey is this great circular walk. Taking in wonderful countryside, wooded creeks and stunning coastal views along with a wealth of historical and literary interest and add in two short ferry rides this walk makes a great day out. There are also plenty of opportunities for well-earned refreshments.

Clay Trails

Surrounding the Cornish town of St Austell and its neighbouring villages the 250-year-old clay mining industry with its striking and dramatic scenery, visible from distances of many miles, has been transformed by tree-planting and careful environmental management to create a haven for wildlife for you to enjoy. The five mostly off-road Clay Trails have been made more accessible by the development of trails for walking, cycling and horse riding – so spend a day discovering these quiet pathways and enjoy the beauty and sense of peace they offer.

Saints Way – Padstow to Fowey – 27 miles

If you are a real walking enthusiast this 27-mile route is well signed with Celtic cross markers and takes you across Cornwall from Padstow in the north to Fowey on the south coast. It follows the probable route of early Christian travellers making their way from Ireland and Wales to Brittany and the European mainland. The route starts at the picturesque harbour in Padstow and heads south through Little Petherick, St Breock Downs and Lanivet before joining the Fowey River near Lostwithiel for a lovely waterside stretch that leads to Fowey where Old Station Master’s House is located.

Surfing Safari Walk – 6 miles

Starting just half a mile from our development One Lusty Glaze this scenic circular route takes in the town, Newquay’s many magnificent beaches, superb headlands and the beautiful River Gannel and its estuary. A particularly good walk for dogs as it passes beaches and pubs where dogs are welcome. Start off at the railway station and then go through the town and onto the headlands and beaches. Due to the proximity to the town, the walk can be cut short at any time.
