Walking in South East Cornwall

It's part of the charm of staying at Portwrinkle that you can enjoy so many rambles from your door, whether beach-combing along the 7-mile stretch of Whitsand Bay at low tide or walking the clifftops in either direction, but should you wish to venture further afield then some other hidden gems await!

Whitsand Bay

The best way to explore South East Cornwall is to put your boots on and go for a walk. Over 25 miles of the South West Coast Path run through the area with popular stretches linking Looe and Polperro and out around Rame Head and Whitsand Bay. To the west, the small village of Polruan, opposite Fowey, offers walks along the coast to Lantic Bay, one of Cornwalls finest, but also inaccessible beaches.

To the north of the area, Bodmin Moor offers wilderness-like terrain, with historical sites dating back 6000 years and remains of Cornwall’s industrial heritage, now given World Heritage status.

You can discover more of the region each year by taking part in the South East Cornwall Walking Festival in September. Here you can join local guides who know the area inside out and will take you to places even the locals don’t know! For more inspiration, visit the I Walk Cornwall website.
