Walking Holidays in West Cornwall

Walking Holidays in Cornwall - An Ideal Way to Explore West Cornwall

West Cornwall, is very popular with walkers, who love the stunning South West Coast Path, and the wild rugged granite moors of West Penwith.  Being keen walkers ourselves, we can help you make the most of your stay, whether you want an easy stroll or a full day of exploring. We can supply Land Ranger Ordinance survey maps, which are ideal for walkers and drivers.  Packed lunches can be made but we know lots of good cafes near walking routes too.

Little Pengelly is between the two coasts, so if it is windy on one coast, you may switch to the calmer one (although the waves won’t be as good!)  There are also lovely inland areas, a few miles away at Godolphin and Penrose Estate, which are both owned by the National Trust. You can enjoy the Bluebell Woods during spring time at Godolphin, and see both coasts from the top of Godolphin hill on a clear day.
