As spring turned into summer, we’ve managed to squeeze in three lovely walks along the south west coastal footpath. Each walk has been very different and each walk is quite short (about a mile or so).
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
Carn Galver to Porthmoina Cove is a perfect short walk embracing a quintessentially ruined tin mine and the sea. it’s easy to find, just beside the B3036 that runs between Land’s End to St Ives.
Logan Rock presides over a beautiful stretch of coastline with dramatic cliffs and sandy beaches
To explore the holy wells of Cornwall is a chance to find quiet contemplative places away from the bustle of tourism and daily life. Sancreed or Chapel Downs Holy Well is one of the most easily accessed – although the setting has been heavily influenced by the Victorian clergyman’s idea of a garden
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.
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.
Take these three beach walks along the sea shore, as white rimmed waves dissolve at your feet and you will feel invigorated and renewed.
Spring brings the fabulous swathes of bluebells to the National Trust’s Godolphin estates ancient woodlands. And there is a fabulous walk to the summit of Godolphin Hill with West Penwiths streched panoramically below.
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 days are perfect for walking in Cornwall
