SWCP #22 & 23 Newquay to Perranporth

This was undoubtedly one of my favourite walks – not least because we walked on my birthday weekend but we were lucky to have had wall to wall sunshine, fabulous camping and great friends. I have set the bar very … Continue reading

SWCP #19 & 20 Padstow to Porthcothan

I don’t think there has been a stretch I have not enjoyed or found exhilarating, but this stretch was certainly one of my favourites. Perhaps it was the crystal clear turquoise waters and white sand that made me think of … Continue reading

SWCP #18 Port Isaac to Rock

The final day of our four-day walking marathon was another sunny day taking us from the idyllic Port Isaac, made famous by Martin Clunes as grumpy Doc Martin and finishing in Rock, the north side of the river Camel. Date: … Continue reading

SWCP #15 & 16 Crackington Haven to Boscastle and Boscastle to Tintagel

It seems odd to write this post, from so far back along in North Cornwall, when I have done some 100 miles of the path since, and so odd that I should be able to walk faster than something – … Continue reading

SWCP walk #12 Clovelly to Hartland Quay
