Welcome to Walking in Cornwall

Cornwall is quite simply unique. A land that has always felt itself to be a nation apart, Cornwall exists as an outstretched limb of land thrust accusingly away from “up country” England pointing straight into the depths of the wildest Atlantic seascape. For walkers Cornwall feels like, and indeed literally is, right at the end of the trail, a place where the land simply runs out and the sun sets on the end of our immediate world.  Surrounded on three sides by so much ocean fury Cornwall is almost a geographic island and with its own Celtic heritage Cornwall has also been a social island which had its own language and even now displays its own unique culture, history and landscape - all of it waiting to be encountered on foot on a Cornwall Walking Holiday.

Cornish Coast Path - highlight of the 630 mile South West Coast Path.
