The Celtic kingdom of Cornwall is blessed with stunning southwestern coastlines, quiet sandy coves and picture-postcard fishing villages, making it the perfect destination to explore on foot. Enjoy exploring the spectacular north and south coast on a holiday in Cornwall, from discovering hidden stretches of white sands to charming Georgian harbours and pastel-coloured medieval fishing towns with pubs serving up locally brewed beers and your favourite pub classics.
On our Walking in Cornwall trip, enjoy peaceful strolls along the beautiful beaches of Polzeath and Daymer Bay, and carry on towards Stepper Point, for awe-inspiring ocean views, where Peregrine Falcons sore overhead. With visits to the Fowey Estuary, Restormel Castle and the charming Lost Gardens of Heligan, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to stop along the way to taste excellent seafood and traditional Cornish fare in cosy local pubs.
For coastal walks in Cornwall, nothing beats our Walking the Lizard Peninsula holiday. Take your time exploring the stunning Lizard Peninsula, most of which is designated as one of England’s Areas of Natural Beauty (AONB). Beginning in Marazion, where the cobbled causeway over to St Michael’s Mount crosses a sandy beach. Along this route, you will visit the Mullion Cove, Kennack Sands and the picture-perfect Kynance Cove, heading towards the wild serpentine cliffs of the Lizard, known as the most southerly tip of mainland Great Britain, before ending your adventure in the traditional fishing village of Coverack. If you’re looking to head inland to hidden coves where you can spot the local seabirds in Watergate Bay and Bedruthan Steps, then our Walking Cornwall’s North Coast Padstow to Perranporth is the best option for bird watching on a relaxing summer getaway.

A very enjoyable 6 days walking. I’ve only marked it as very good as I had rooms that looked over roof tops and air conditioning units in both hotels. Some others in the group had harbour views and very big rooms. Be aware that the Old Custom House in Padstow has stairs up and down all over the place. Quite an adventure finding your room!
I’d forgotten just how beautiful Cornwall is. Turqouise seas, dramatic cliffs and wonderful beaches.
The prefect tonic for a tough year for us all. The usual mix of interesting and friendly fellow walkers.
A wonderous week, well orchestrated by two great guides. They even secured a week of sunshine.
You couldn’t ask for more. Thoroughly recommended to anyone who wants to rediscover the charms and beauty of the Cornish coast in the company of a great bunch of like-minded individuals.
