There are so many fascinating Ancient Sites to explore in West Cornwall.. We revisited the once mighty Iron Age fort of Chun Castle set beside the remarkable preserved Chun Quoit, in a commanding position high on the downs, with spectacular views over West Penwith.
West Cornwall walks
West Cornwall walks within easy reach of Ednovean Farm along the South West coastal footpath and across the cornish downs.
Follow the South West Footpath as it skirts the sea or walk the breathtaking heathland of Penwith moors to find stone circles
Cape Cornwall towers above the sea, crowned by a statuesque mine chimney, with fabulous views from the summit back across the sea to Sennen and Land’s End. In fact Cape Cornwall was thought to be the Land’s End until more accurate mapping deposed it from its throne and many Cornishmen hold this to be true […]
Logan Rock presides over a beautiful stretch of coastline with dramatic cliffs and sandy beaches
As shortest day approaches inevitably there are days when it really doesn’t seem to get truly light at all. Winter can bring us gloomy numpty days of dull half light and moody shadows but Cornwall has the perfect antidote to these days – an escape to the sea. Walk along the sea shore as white […]
I’ve watched the bluebells spring up around the country lanes of Cornwall this week and I spotted the first House Martin, back from its long migration to Africa. These twin augers were enough for me to feel spring was at its peek and summer fast approaching and I knew it was time to visit the […]
Today I’d like to share three of our favourite walks with you – just snaps and impressions but wonderful memories that I’ve treasured over the years. When a fabulously bright and sunny day dawns in wintertime, the Cornish have a special name for it: – “A day lent from summer” and those balmy sun filled […]
We set out to walk along the coastal footpath, threading across the fields from Ednovean Farm along the ancient footpaths that drop execrably down towards the sea. As we emerged at Trebarvah, there is a spellbinding view down over Perranuthnoe to St Michael’s Mount, which is so evocative of an impressionist painting. From here a […]
We took a walk through nature’s garden around Land’s End this week along dramatic cliff tops laced with bluebells tumbling towards the sea. May has been a fabulous month in Cornwall and so for a couple of hours we stole away to thread our way through the wild flowers and watched the sea swirl around […]
A wonderful way to end the day is a walk along the beach in the sunset and for us it should be an easy thing to plan. Perranuthnoe’s Beach is just at the bottom of the village but somehow we, like everyone I think, are wrapped up in our daily routines and don’t put those […]
The August bank holiday turned out to be a classic Cornish weekend with still clear tranquil seas bathed in sunshine one day turning to dramatic tumbling waves racing across Mounts bay in the blink of an eye. For the last Bank Holiday of the year we walked from the farm to visit a nearby favourite […]
