Walk the Path: Explore Cornwall’s Coastal Path – part 1
For walking holidays, Cornwall is hard to beat with moors, rugged coastline, sandy coves and picturesque villages. The South West Coast Path is the icing on the cake.
Created by coastguards patrolling for smugglers and fishermen checking sea conditions and looking for shoals of fish, the South West Coast Path is 630 miles long. Running from Minehead in Somerset, along the coastlines of Exmoor and North Devon, before following the entire coastline of Cornwall, across the River Tamar back into Devon and finally to Poole Harbour in Dorset, it takes in some of the UK’s most breath-taking scenery.
CLC Trenython Manor is beautifully positioned for walking holidays on Cornwall’s coastal path that range from The Lizard to Torcross. In this blog, we will look in detail at the first leg of a week’s worth of walks from Par to Torcross; part 2 will cover the path westwards from Par to The Lizard.
Par to Torcross
Par to Torcross allows you to explore the beauty of south-east Cornwall, its estuaries and landscapes to historic Plymouth, through Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) with idyllic sandy coves to Salcombe and onwards to the east.
You can choose to walk the different legs of this 94-mile section of the South West Coast Path in sequence over a week or pick and choose the legs that most appeal or are most suitable for your walking level.
