Wondrous Walks

Updated: Jul 4, 2022

Come spring or summer, winter or autumn, rain or shine, there are some stunning walks in our part of Cornwall.

From your cottage door

You can walk to Kennack Sands straight from the door of your cottage. Once there, you can take the South West Coast Path to the right which will take you past Poltesco, famous for the relics of its serpentine works, and on to Cadgwith Cove. Or turn left from Kennack Sands’ East beach and discover the clifftops all the way to Coverack.

The Lizard peninsula

The Lizard offers walks from the village green as well as along the South West Coast Path with lots of interesting places to see. From Britain’s most southerly point to the RNLI Lifeboat Station, the iconic Lizard Lighthouse and the National Trust’s Kynance Cove, there is something for everyone.


A short drive will take you to the quintessential fishing cove of Coverack. From here you can walk towards Porthallow and Porthoustock or explore the path up to the Terence Coventry Sculpture Park for some quiet contemplation amidst the incredible sculptures.


Roskillys is at the top of the hill as you drive out of Coverack and offers a lovely level walk around its lakes and woodland. Its very popular café means that after a stroll you can treat yourself to a homemade ice-cream or a light lunch.

Goonhilly Downs

This nature reserve, just at the top of our lane where it meets the main road, is full of wildlife and wonder. From the majestic satellite dishes at Goonhilly Earth Station to Croft Pascoe pool, this vast expanse of heathland is just waiting to be explored.

These are just a few of our nearby favourites, visit for a selection of over 200 circular walks across Cornwall or South West Coast Path for details of cliff and coastal walks.
