Walks: The Wild and The Wonderful
One of the greatest things about Cornwall is the sheer amount of natural, untouched landscapes that are just ideal for a day of exploring. There’s no better feeling than reaching the top of a hill, looking down and just admiring the view and what you have accomplished. So why not make up some sandwiches, put on your wellies and go on your very own Cornish adventure. You’ll find a whole book of walks at the farm but here are a few of our favourites:
· Gorran Haven and Dodman Point
A 4 mile walk of moderate difficulty, however the views from Dodman point over Veryan Bay towards Nare Head make the slight struggle all so very worth while. Look out for the HUGE granite cross at Dodman point which was placed there in 1896 as anavigational aid for seafarers – it’s also the perfect spot for a scenic photo!
Second up is the Hall Walk in Fowey. Meandering around the lower banks of the River Fowey, this particular route has been listed in Britain’s top 100 walks and is not too strenuous for the whole family to enjoy. If the promise of probably the best estuary views in the county isn’t enough to get you walking, then the many tea rooms and the thought of a cream tea should be.
The Luxulyan Valley can be described as nothing less than breathtaking. It’s thickly wooded terrain and steep granite sloops surround the fast-flowing River Par, whilst playing home to some quite extraordinary early 19th century industrial remains which are completely unique to the West Country. This 3 mile walk is one you will remember, and also the perfect spot to enjoy a proper Cornish Pasty!
