  "There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened." — Douglas Adams

Thoroughly enjoyed the holiday, an opportunity to see cornwall up close without having to consider where to park the car. Have enjoyed the walks for several years and look ofrward to more.

Guided walking tour in Cornwall

7 night walking break with 5 days of walking in Cornwall

p1160073

I organise a 5 day guided walking holiday with walks every day in different parts of Cornwall. They are small groups of up to 8 people and we are walking mainly on the South West Coast Path between 6 and 9 miles (9-12km) with 7 nights accommodation based in Falmouth, the maritime town of Cornwall.

Check what my previous guests said about my personalised walking holidays on Tripadvisor.

Cornwall is a Celtic country with stories of geological wonder, myths and legends, of a landscape that has given inspiration to many artists, writers and poets. It has been awarded UNESCO world heritage status for its mining heritage and there are many International, National and local designations of Areas of Natural Beauty, National Nature Reserves, Special Areas of Conservation, Voluntary Marine Conservation Areas and Sites of Special Scientific Interest. In short, It ain't Half Beautiful:-)

Latest. Our 2020 programme is below. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for details. The holiday consists of :-

  • Includes:- Packed lunches, transportation, CD ROM of photos of your walking week, 20% voucher from my sponsors Hawkshead for all outdoor gear and a special gift.
  • Walk at a leisurely pace of 1.5 - 2 mph between 6-9 miles (9-12kms) per day over the most spectacular scenery with me as your guide.
  • 7 nights accommodation chosen by you from a comprehensive list of the best accommodation providers in Falmouth that I have worked closely with for many years.
  • 5 days of walks all around Cornwall to see the best sites and scenery paying close attention to your interests. It's informative and entertaining.
  • I base our walks mainly around the South West Coast Path, and it is difficult to summarise these areas so we could be walking:-
  • the Lizard peninsula, a Jewel in Cornwall's crown which attached itself to Cornwall 375 million years ago and is unlike anywhere else in Britain.
  • The Far west, Penwith, which is the land of Granite, myths and legends and archaeological features like stone circles and standing stones.
  • The Roseland Peninsula, an area out of the way from the mainstream, with the quietest country lanes, old estates and wonderful bays and headlands.
  • The craggy North Coast stretching from Lands end up to Padstow with high cliffs, long beaches and fabulous bays.

Your average walking day consists of being picked up at 9.15am in my 9 seater VW Caravelle (Ellie as named by our children). Depending on the weather and wind direction I will choose where we are walking for the day. So many times we have timed our walking day to perfection dodging the inclement weather. All local knowledge and some good weather watching works wonders.

We are walking by 10.15/10.30am and walk leisurely until 4.30/5pm. Lunch is a real packed lunch consisting of a sandwich and up to 7 other snacks including three different fruits, energy bars, crisps, carrots, biscuits and cake. Special diets are catered for so I know when you fill out the information forms I send when you book.

Cornwall's landscape has a variety of habitats and the coast can be steep in places and then around the corner are sheltered sandy bays. So I must stress that a certain level of fitness is required. You must be able to walk between 6 and 9 miles per day for five consecutive days. 

The walks are not route marches. For me it is the journey, not the destination.

We stop, we take in the scenery and often we will do a five mile walk with a spot of swimming or beach gazing and scrambling. It's your holiday so like in my musical evenings, (yes a professional piano entertainer in my time) I do take requests. But in the main we walk 6-9 miles per day in different parts of Cornwall (an hour away from Falmouth in all directions) taking in the flora and fauna, myths and legends, maritime stories of wrecks and smuggling, anecdotes on mining and fishing and so much more. Looking for the DNA of Cornwall!

The Cornish landscape does it's own talking. I know when to be quiet and when you just want to take it all in.

phoca thumb m P1040665Falmouth is the largest town in Cornwall at the mouth of the River Fal opposite St Mawes on the south coast.

There are miles of beautiful wooded creeks, beaches, estuaries and sea front.

Falmouth also boasts International entertainment at the Falmouth Pavilions, a wonderful Maritime Museum, numerous art galleries and around 50 restaurants with menus from all around the world. Falmouth is the perfect town to stay in.
