Five easy Cornish rambles

Walking is one of the most popular activities in Cornwall especially during the British summer. We all want to get outside when the sun is shining so why not explore the rich mining history, stunning coastlines and breathtaking views that you can only and will only ever find in Cornwall?

  • Walk on Gribbin Head

Situated in stunning West Fowey this is a perfect ramble for those who don’t walk often. Gribbin Head is famous for its association with the romantic novelist Daphne du Maurier who has used the area as a setting for many of her books. It offers up a rich historical experience with fabulous views of the Cornish landscape and bay.

We recommend our walking map of The Fowey Estuary which you can purchase at local retailers. Interestingly, that very same Fowey map may be featured on a show about BnBs on Channel 5 soon.

  • The Lizard Peninsula coastal walk

Slightly longer is this stunning walk along the Lizard Peninsula. The peninsula is famous for its abundant wildlife and it’s quite often the case that you can spot seals when you’re out on a walk.

As the Lizard Peninsula is covered by several of our pocket sized maps it’s difficult to recommend just one but you can find them in local retailers around the area! If you walk the Lizard Peninsula often we advise you take advantage of our box set, which is also sold in some local retailers. It makes a great gift for those avid fans of Cornwall!

  • Tintagel to Boscastle

For those in search of more of challenge North Cornwall is calling. Although the coastal path is steep and strenuous it is well worth the effort when you see the glorious view and stand within the walls of the castle itself.

Our little yellow map of Boscastle and Tintagel is just the thing you need for your scramble.

  • Lands End to Sennen Cove

If you prefer scenic views over myth and legend then this may just be the one for you. The most challenging on the list but some would say the most stunning too. I can promise you spectacular ocean vistas and abundant wildlife throughout the year.

We recommend our Around and About Land’s End to St. Buryan walking map for this particular walk.

  • Botallack mining walk

And I can hardly mention Cornwall without mentioning Poldark in the same sentence. If you’re a fan of either Cornish mining heritage or the BBC production then we recommend exploring the location where Levant Mine played the role of the fictional Tressiders Mill.

Our pocket-sized, little yellow map of St Just, Pendeen & Cape Cornwall is perfect for exploring the area. It’s also worth noting that if you’re a fan of Poldark then you may be interested in our Poldark Cornish Film Locations map (eight walks for the price of one). Can be found in relevant local area retailers or you can order it on our website.

Do get outside and walk these walks, they’re beautiful come rain or shine (but we’ll keep our fingers crossed for sunshine). Keep your eyes peeled for next weeks Easter-themed blog post!
