The Coast Path

The South West's unspoilt coastline

The South West Coast Path is 630 miles of unspoilt coastline leading you around the rugged north cliffs to the sublime and gentle south coast.

Our hotel in Cornwall is positioned right on the Cornish coast path with walks taking you to Tintagel Castle or through Valency and across to Port Isaac. We have listed a few of our favourite walks, from easy strolls to more challenging hikes yet all with the same beautiful views of the coastline. Exploring the South West Coast Path with your dog is a real joy, when you base yourself at our dog friendly hotel in Cornwall you have a plethora of walks right on the doorstep for you and you hound to discover.

From Bostcastle Harbour to Rocky Valley
One of the Coast Path’s most magical walks. At St Nectan’s Kieve the River Trevillet plunges down a 60-foot waterfall with such force that it has carved a series of basins in the rock. From here it flows through St Nectan’s Glen and on past the ruins of a medieval mill, where the carvings on the rock-face are said to be almost 4000 years old. On the last leg of its journey to the sea it tumbles and splashes through the deep canyon it has sculpted through a breathtakingly beautiful wilderness. Discover St Piran’s Well, where the patron saint of Cornish miners is said to have fallen to his death, at the age of 200, after too much to drink.

From Beeny cliff via Pendargon falls
The awesome power of the fresh water making its way to the sea is as evident around Boscastle as the power of the waves rolling in from the Atlantic and pounding the shoreline. As spectacular as the blowhole that booms and foams around low tide in the harbour is the torrent of water streaming over the cliffs at Pentargon Falls. Thomas Hardy met and courted his first wife nearby, and some of his most wonderful poetry was inspired by the scenery on this walk. Find seals on the rocks below Fire Beacon Point.
