Cornwalks – Season Walks

Cornwall Social Group organises walks on a regular basis as part of their programme of social events across Cornwall, and everyone is welcome to join and take part. Today, Andrew and Cathy from Cornwall Social Group share with us their favourite walk for each season in Cornwall.

Summer

In summer, one of our favourite walks has to be Mullion Cove, south of Helston, in South West Cornwall, on the west coast of the Lizard Peninsula. Walking down to the harbour, you get a real feel of traditional Cornwall as it must have been for centuries, with a hamlet of cottages, lobster pots and a few small fishing boats. Walk along the harbour wall, then head up the harbour wall steps and along the coastal path to the right, amongst huge rocks and cliffs. Dramatic and memorable coastal scenery, with the shorter option of just a stroll around the harbour or the longer option of enjoying the scenery along the coast path.

Autumn

Our group in autumn often enjoys the walk along the wooded banks of the River Fowey, north of Liskeard, on the south side of Bodmin Moor in East Cornwall (follow signs to the car park). The walk runs downstream by the pretty river and numerous gentle broken waterfalls. Basically, down and back up again. Under many beautiful trees, there’s a lot of shelter on this walk, and the path is mostly flat, making this an easy walk for people who may not be able to manage very much and may have limited stamina or mobility.

Seasonal walks in Cornwall

Winter

In the winter months, we’ve often taken groups to Trebarwith Strand in North Cornwall, just south of Tintagel. Here the hills tumble down massive cliffs to the raw power of the Atlantic Ocean. At low tide, a huge stretch of beach is uncovered. Wrapped up warm, strolling along the wide stretch of sand in your wellies, can be just what you need to ‘blow off the cobwebs’. To the left, as you face the sea, the cliffs have a large natural cave and off the shore is the very photogenic Gull Rock Island. There’s further walking up steep sections of the coast path if you want more, but many people may prefer simply to head into the Port William pub.

Spring

To put a spring in your step in spring, go for a longer walk. Our favourite spot is the Rumps Point headland, north of the famous surfing beach of Polzeath, near Wadebridge, more or less in the centre of Cornwall. On the dead-end road at Pentireglaze, from the lead mines car park, head right from the information board, cross a field, and turn left along the coast path. If you time it just right in late April / May / early June, the hillsides will be a stunning sight, full of thousands of Bluebells and Red Campion wild flowers, on a sunny day by the wide blue ocean, a sight you will never forget! Head all the way down to Rumps Point, and enjoy your picnic with a view over The Mouls islands, before returning inland via Pentire Farm.
