Allowing ample opportunities to explore the north and south coast, this route begins by crossing the Camel Estuary by ferry and walking towards spectacular beaches of Polzeath and Daymer Bay, with the opportunity to dine on Rick Stein’s famous fresh-caught fish and chips. Next, head towards the cliffs at Stepper Point, for panoramic ocean views where Peregrine Falcons are known to nest. After visiting the Lanhydrock, the Fowey Estuary and Restormel Castle, join the South West Coastal Path and wander around the charming Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Day 1: Our trip begins in Padstow a typically Cornish harbour town. 

Padstow is still a working harbour town but this North Cornwall port has seen its popularity surge amongst walkers and foodies in recent years. 

Day 2: Ferry to Rock, walk to Pentire Head via Polzeath and Daymer Bay, back to Padstow.

We set out from Padstow by catching the foot ferry across the Camel Estuary to the small seaside village of Rock. Our route takes us slightly inland to the idyllic beaches of Polzeath and Daymer Bay and then up to Pentire Head. After lunch we walk past St Enodoc Church and along the dunes, returning to Padstow by foot ferry in the late afternoon. Dinner offers a chance to try Rick Stein’s famous fresh caught Fish and Chips or one of the many restaurant choices in town before returning to our townhouse hotel for the evening.

Day 3: Stepper Point, beaches and coves of Trevone and Harlyn Bay.

Walking from your hotel out of town and along the coastal path, our route leads along the cliffs at Stepper Point, past the observatory with panoramic views of ocean, town and estuary. Keep an eye out for Peregrine Falcons, the fastest birds in the world, known to fly and nest in this area, as you traverse the coast and beaches towards lunch in Trevone or Harlyn Bay or even Constantine Bay depending on our progress. Catching the bus back across the headland in the afternoon provides a leisurely end to a day to remember on the North Cornish coast

Day 4: Fowey Estuary, Restormel Castle, Saint's Way.

We transfer to Lanhydrock Gardens to start walking down the Fowey Estuary. From the gardens, which are well worth an explore, we walk towards the coast passing the picture-perfect Restormel Castle and onto the lovely town of Lostwithiel for lunch. In the afternoon we join the Saint’s Way through the lovely village of Golant and onto Fowey and the South Cornish coast. At the end of the walk we transfer to our new hotel in Charlestown. 

Day 5: South West Coastal Path to Mevagissey.

In the morning we walk directly from our hotel southwards along the South West Coastal Path towards the wonderful town of Mevagissey. On the way we veer from the path to visit the wonderful Lost Gardens of Heligan (found in 1991 after 70 years of neglect and restored to former glory - see 'Money' section for entrance fee) and then into Mevagissey for lunch with fresh seafood caught that morning.

Day 6: Eastwards from the hotel to Carlyon Bay, Polkerris beach and Fowey.

We again walk out from the hotel, eastwards along the coastal path past Carlyon Bay and onto lunch in the seaside town of Par. The Wonderful Polkerris beach is our next destination in the afternoon before we head into Fowey for afternoon tea in advance of our last night together.

Day 7: Our trip ends in Charlestown.

Our exploration of Cornwall ends here, in Charlestown.
