Exploring and walking
North Cornwall is steeped in history, ethereal beauty and panoramic views of the rugged Atlantic coast. The walks and exploration are endless, but here are a few.
The views from Tintagel Castle are breathtaking
Trebarwith Strand to Tintagel Castle
This historical walk is 5.4 miles. Take in the rugged coast line, but don’t forget to look out for the iconic Victorian Castle Hotel, the medieval old post-office and King Arthur’s great hall! This circular walk will take you back to the old slate quarry village Treknow.
Sandymouth to Coombe Valley
The walk mixes terrains, following the coast to scenic Duckpool bay and then turning inland towards Coombe, the woods of Coombe and Coombe valley. Duckpool is a dog friendly beach, so this is a great walk for your furry friends.
Walk along incredible coastline
Stunning coastal path route
This short one-mile walk starts near Trethevy and follows a bumbling brook down to the bay near Bossiney. Meander through the rocky bluffs and deep clefts, when you reach the mill, look out for the ancient Bronze-age ‘Labryinth’ paintings!
Lesnewth to Hallwell Woods
This totally ethereal route follows a stream along a wooded valley before reaching the brow of a hill overlooking the beautiful Valency Valley. Is this planet earth or The Shire in Lord of the Rings? We’re not sure. The walk is dog friendly (apart from the occasional stile).
A great dog friendly route
Widemouth Bay, Cornwall
Crackington Haven to Widemouth
This walk is 6 miles and worth every single second. Begin the walk surrounded by Iron age ruins. Then, follow the winding path across ancient woodlands, and one final steep hill and you reach panoramic, breathtaking Penhalt Cliff.
