Walks in Cornwall
A walk in the countryside is a great way to clear your mind and get the blood flowing. Cornwall is a county of many contrasts, home to beautiful scenery and thriving wildlife. So whether you’re following the snaking path of the River Camel, or breathing in the fresh air of the coastal cliff tops, North Cornwall is the perfect place for walkers of all abilities to escape the humdrum.
The rugged terrain of Bodmin Moor is perfect for getting away from it all. Made up of one hundred square miles of breathtaking countryside, Bodmin Moor has been designated an area of outstanding natural beauty. And rightly so. The moor is scattered with Bronze Age relics and is home to the two highest points in Cornwall – Brown Willy, and Roughtor. Most walkers will be able to handle the climbs and the views across Cornwall from the peaks are unforgettable. Don’t forget your binoculars.
The Camel Trail
The Camel Trail is a 17 mile long path which meanders through some of the most beautiful sites in North Cornwall. The trail begins in Padstow and continues right through to the foot of Bodmin Moor, taking in Wadebridge on the way.
What’s more, The Camel Trail is completely flat and offers casual walkers something a little more easy going than a hike across wild terrain. There are various places to stop and have a picnic so don’t forget your sandwiches. Or, visit one of the lovely pubs along the trail and indulge in a spot of liquid refreshment. And if you’d prefer swapping two feet for two wheels, Bridge Bike Hire in Wadebridge has lots of bikes available.

Cornwall Coastal Footpath
Breathe in the fresh air and delight in the world famous scenery along the Cornwall Coastal Footpath. Following the epic cliffs and beautiful beaches that hug the Cornish coastline, the scenery is stunning. The footpath also snakes past many historic relics, such as the slate memorial to the famous poet Laurence Benyon and the dramatic ruins of an Iron Age castle at The Rumps. With so many walks weaving in and out of the Cornwall Coastal Footpath, it’s advisable to bring a map and plan your route. Or talk to us and we’ll help you find something to suit.
