Walks in Cornwall

Cornwall’s coast path runs along the full length of the more than 250 miles of coast line, making it one of the most spectacular places to walk in the country.

Circular Walks Nearby to Hay Barton

St Anthony Head and Place

This gentle circular walk is five miles long and can begin at either St Anthony Head or from catching a ferry from St Mawes to Place. Stunning sea views stretch across Gerrans Bay towards Falmouth, one of the world’s largest natural harbours. Two white sand coves with azure blue sea on a clear day give way to St Anthony’s lighthouse.

St Mawes to St Just-in-Roseland Church

The walk from St Mawes to St Just-in-Roseland is wonderfully peaceful. Around five miles with one moderate climb, the path meanders along St Just Creek with fantastic views across the Carrick Roads. The Church at St Just-in-Roseland is one of the most beautiful in Cornwall and well worth a look before heading back to St Mawes for a well earned treat in one of the numerous cafes and restaurants.

Mevagissey, Gorran Haven and Portmellon

For those after something a little more strenuous, the seven mile walk from Mevagissey is ideal. Starting at this traditional fishing village with a large harbour, the path winds through woodlands to the harbourside village of Gorran Haven, where a stunning coast path walk then returns to Mevagissey through Chapel Point.

Pendower Beach and Treworlas

This 3 mile walk starts at Pendower Beach with views across to the dramatic headland of Nare Head. The path leads away from the beach and into a wooded valley. Melinsey Mill is an excellent place to stop for a cream tea before finishing the walk, returning to the stretching shores of Pendower.

Walking guides in the Guest Sitting Room at Hay Barton will help provide plenty more food for thought for walks throughout Cornwall as you enjoy your afternoon tea after a day’s sightseeing.
