Today's walkitcornwall quote
We had a great time with you as our fearless guide. Loved it all especially the colours of Cornwall. We really enjoyed the pace of the walks. It allowed me to lag and take photos and be one with the land. Also it allowed me to fantasize about the smugglers and customs men dashing along the trails.

A Bit About walkitcornwall
Paul and Ceri Simmons live just north of the beautiful Helford River on a smallholding with our three children and growing menagerie of animals.
Paul has the South West Mountain and Moorland Camping Leader award recognised by the British Mountain Council and MLTE (Mountain Leaders Training England) and is qualified to go "wild camping” on the Moors. He is fully insured to take walks on the Moors and all paths in the South West. He was a committee member of the South West Coast Path Association representing the Lizard from Porthleven to Falmouth and over to the Roseland peninsula and up to Mevagissey. 80 miles (128 km) of fabulous coast path. He has been a qualified Green Guide since 2001. For 4 years he has taken guided walks for Natural England in July and August.
In 2007 he completed an MA in Cornish Studies at the Institute of Cornish Studies which involves cultural, historic, social, political and economic studies. His dissertation is about the public and professional attitudes to the conservation of the biodiversity on the Lizard. He has a National Certificate in Practical Habitat Management from Merrist Wood College Surrey.
He worked for the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at the Wetland Centre, Barnes London on their 105 acre as an explainer in the education department setting up and co ordinating various educational programmes. Pond dipping and inaugurating an Earth time line are favourites.
Paul has been a professional piano entertainer and session player for 28 years. "From Cole Porter to Coldplay, Gershwin to Green Day". He still plays and sings in Cornwall providing the entertainment at many venues in the evening.
Ceri is a lady of distinction. The Royal Horticultural Society think so and awarded her that in her National Diploma. She has worked in the gardening business for seven years. Before that she ran an International fashion business in London and Hong Kong.
Presently she is looking after our smallholding of 5 acres (2 ha) and a growing menagerie of animals. Oh yes, I nearly forgot we also have 3 children, Emily, Maya and Ben (12, 10 and 7).
Names of animals are available on request:-)
