    About the Trail:

    Facts: The Cornish Coastal Path is part of the 630-mile South West Coast Path that stretches from Minehead to Poole, and offers breathtaking scenery encompassing some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in Britain. The coast hugging path was originally developed in the 19th century to allow customs officers access to patrol the entire coast to discourage smuggling, today the route allows you to walk the beguiling coastline with the sea breeze in your hair and peer into every cove and inlet for the sheer joy of the view. It’s certainly one of the most beautiful long distance paths in Britain.

    Highlights: The coast is recognised as having 12 separate Areas on Outstanding Natural Beauty and there is currently a campaign to have the Cornwall coast recognised with national park status.

    The mild climate makes walking possible all year round. The ever changing views include fishing villages, sheer cliffs, pristine beaches and turquoise seas enabling you to have an experience that will encourage you to tackle the next section of the route. And then the next.This self-guided routes offer an insightful and comprehensive guide littered with historic notes and tales to embellish your walking experience. Take a look at the route options for walking the path for a holiday with a duration and daily walking distance to suit you.

    The nature of the Trail:

    As you leave Bude the path takes you onto grassy cliffs with sheer drops along the back of the secluded coves and beaches. However, as you progress further it proves challenging as it becomes rough and narrow in places and plunges down into steep valleys to climb back up to the cliff tops again. The terrain changes throughout the walk from rocky to tarmac and fairly flat heathland. The wild flowers covering the headlands add to the colour and drama of the spectacular views which you are rewarded with for your efforts.
