We can supply step-by-step walking guide sheets for you to follow or arrange guided walks with local enthusiasts. Below is a selection of walks in the area, and we have many more available.

Camelford Country an easy walk 1.86 miles long taking about 1 hour 10 mins.

A pleasent ramble in some of the countryside around the market town of Camelford, returning along the riverbank.

Camelford & Countryside a moderate walk 6.21 miles long taking about 5 hours.

A pleasant walk in some of the varied countryside around the market town of Camelford. Start along the riverbank for a kilometre before a short stretch on the road takes us to a long circle through the countryside and country lanes. You visit the ancient 'Long Stone' and see views of the moor before rejoining our starting point in Camelford.

Boscastle Coast a moderate walk 3.11 miles long taking about 1 hour 30 mins.

This interesting and scenic walk takes you through the ancient village of Boscastle and across farmland to the coast with its distinctive lookout point. You return to Boscastle along the coast path, with views over the harbour and river. There are interesting giftshops and several crystal shops in the harbour area, together with a possibly unique witchcraft museum.

Boscastle - Rugged Coast, Tranquil Valley a more demanding moderate walk 6 miles long taking 4 hours.

A circular walk starting from the lovely village of Boscastle. You view the harbour as we climb up to the coast path on the clifftops for spectacular views of the North Cornwall coast. After a few kilometres you head inland across farmland and country lanes to reach the tranquil Valency Valley, along which you walk along in woodland to return to our transport.

Alternun - Laneast - Gimblett's Mill - Altarnun a more demanding moderate walk 6.5 miles long taking 3 hours 30 mins.

From the picture-postcard village of Altarnun, the route offers fine views across Bodmin Moor and you'll know you're in Cornwall as it visits a whole succession of place names beginning with 'Tre'! The church at Altarnun dates from the 15th Century and is known as 'The Cathedral of the Moor'. Venture inside to admire the carved bench ends and Norman font. The Celtic cross in the churchyard is possibly from the 6th Century. The adjacent pack-horse bridge is also 15th Century and has been beautifully restored. John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, preached from the pulpit in Laneast Church. A museum dedicated to him is at nearby Trewint. Information for Dog Owners: the route is considered suitable for biddable dogs.

Pentire Point and the Rumps a moderate walk 4.35 miles long taking 2 hours 30 mins.

The majority of this walk is along the beautiful North Cornwall coast. This scenic walk gives the walker a choice of where to begin, but no matter what the choice, the walker will not be disappointed. From the preferred start point, the coast path leads you down past a small sandy cove called Pentireglaze Haven, before it climbs upwards to Pentire Point. After taking in the stunning views from its top over Polzeath Bay and maybe a picnic, the coast path rounds the point and takes you by picturesque coves down a detour to the rocky double outcrop known as The Rumps, which is worth exploring and where you may glimpse a seal or two. Following the coast path once more, you turn inland and through farmland for a while before climbing to Com Head - another viewpoint. The climb is quite steep on this section, but it is well worth the energy for the stunning views over the bay once you have reached the top. A little further along, we leave the coast path to turn inland once more through the Lead Mines NT car park. Following the road through a small set of farm buildings and up a hill brings you to a farm track leading through fields back down to Pentireglaze Haven. Here, hot feet may be refreshed by a cooling paddle in the sea, before returning to the starting point, feeling relaxed.
