We love walking, it’s one of our favourite ways to keep fit and have fun. And, in Cornwall, we couldn’t be better placed for admiring the stunning scenery and changing seasons. With so many walks to choose from, we really are spoiled for choice! Here’s five of our favourites to make the most of Cornwall in autumn!
Padstow to Harlyn Bay
This is a lovely walk and a way to see picturesque Padstow without all the crowds. Starting at Padstow Harbour the walk passes some wonderful sandy beaches so is ideal for dog owners too!
For birdwatching, seal sighting and dramatic scenery, look no farther than the most southerly point! The Lizard is renowned for magnificent views full of interest. Keep an eye out for the hidden beach at Housel Bay and make sure you keep watch for Ross Poldark himself as they film Poldark in these ere parts!
This incredible National Trust Garden near Falmouth offers a wonderful walk that takes you down to the water at Durgan. Explore pretty ponds, orchards, the famous cherry laurel maze and a stunning secluded beach. To extend the walk, visit nearby Trebah and discover 26 acres of sub tropical gardens to explore.
This fairly simple walk takes you from Watergate Bay to Porth and back again in a circle. The perfect walk for Fido, both Porth beach and Watergate Bay are dog friendly. Pretty scenery and full of coastal Cornish charm, stop off at The Merrymoor in Porth for something cold and a spot of lunch and then finish at Watergate Bay and enjoy a mug of something hot in The Beach Hut – perfect!
We couldn’t write a walking blog without featuring our favourite! Trelissick is a short drive from Merchant House and the most amazing location to explore. At just over 4.5 miles, this walk follows the Woodland Trail. Expect creekside views and lush parkland complete with the famous Trelissick crooked tree. Dogs are very welcome!
