Walking in Cornwall
Explore stunning landscapes on foot One of the most popular activities
Search listings representing the very best Cornwall has to offer its ramblers. From walking along an inland path network of over 2,400 miles, simply taking a gentle stroll along your choice of beach, or exploring one of Cornwall's many beautiful gardens and estates, there will always be more to see and do.
Walking is one of the most popular activities in Cornwall and no surprise given the diversity of our natural landscape and the prestige gained from Cornwall's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Walkers have long been drawn by the lure of ancient standing stones on windswept moors, fascination with mineral tramways and clay trails and lakes of an industrial past, and the stunning beauty of 300 miles of the South West coastal pathway offering spectacular views of awesome cliffs, secluded coves and golden beaches washed by the surf.
For news on any parts of the coast path that may have closures or diversions in place, visit the South West Coast Path website.
