One of the attractions of Cornwall is the amazing coastal footpath that winds itís way around the entire peninsula thus making all the breathtaking views available and accessible to those who want to walk and be active on their vacation. We love these footpaths, not only for their variety of scenery but also the access to delightful beaches and creeks where you can sit and soak up the natural surroundings.

We can furnish you with information on circular walks and coastal footpath walks that are all just a short drive from our little luxury holiday cottage Cornwall.

Here's a selection of our favourite local attractions plus a few further afield.

   
   

 

Porthleven

Close to home is the historic and picturesque harbour of Porthleven.  This is an area of outstanding natural beauty and has walks through the Penrose Estate and along the coastal path to Loe Bar and beyond. 

   
   

 

St.Michael’s Mount

The jewel in Cornwall's crown, a fairytale island with an exotic garden, ancient harbour, a church and a medieval castle. 

Whatever your interest – history, architecture, horticulture or simply a fun day out – you’ll have a wonderful time discovering everything that St Michael’s Mount offers.

   
   
  St. Ives

St Ives is one of the most famous holiday towns in Cornwall.  Life centres around the harbour where fishing boats still moor alongside granite piers.  During the summer months, this town is a blaze of colour, from the harbour to its maze of narrow cobbled streets. 

As night falls, St. Ives comes alive - with restaurants, cafés and bars to suit every taste in a truly cosmopolitan atmosphere.

 

   
   
  Godolphin House

Just a short drive away and now owned by the National Trust.  This attraction offers an ancient and atmospheric house and garden set within an historic estate.

With more than 400 recorded archaeological features and mine ruins, plus the wonderful views over west Cornwall from the top of Godolphin Hill, this is a site not to be missed.
