Walks in Cornwall

Walking in Cornwall

Walking in Cornwall is a fantastic way to see the beautiful countryside and magnificent coastline. Our holiday park is only half a mile from Cubert Common which can be reached easily by following our quiet country lanes. Once through the gate onto the common you are surrounded by wonderful views and straight away you will see Polly Joke up ahead.

Your only hard decision left to make is which stunning view you wish to see first. The coastline surrounding this area is spectacular! The coastal footpath runs from West Pentire which is south of Newquay down through Crantock and Holywell and all the way to Perranporth. This footpath is clearly the most fascinating way to see the beauty of this area. At West Pentire you can see whole fields of deep red poppies. Beautiful butterflies, around the Holywell dunes and seals and dolphins close to the rocks.

The Ganel Estuary and Crantock stroll

Start and Finish Location: Crantock Bus Stop

  • Distance: 2 miles (3km)
  • Grade: Easy
  • Terrain: Mostly level with one gentle climb at the beginning

From the bus stop, take the lane to the right of a small antique shop. Follow the lane up to the top of the hill and climb over the stone stile that faces you as the road takes a sharp right. Cross the field and climb over a stone stile on the other side before turning left down the lane.
Here you pass Penpol Farm on the left, before finding the Coast path sign on the left hand side of the road. Take this path through the kissing gate, across the field and a copse alongside Penpol Creek. At another kissing gate you will emerge from the wood to views across the Gannel Estuary. Keep the estuary on your right and take in the natural delights of this beautiful protected area.
Follow the path up a gentle climb to be rewarded with stunning views across Crantock Beach and the Atlantic beyond. The path then continues until dropping to Crantock Beach car park.
Crantock village is very pretty and also has much to explore; there is the Church with its stocks (last used in 1817) in the church yard, two pubs and a few little shops.
