We will walk a beautiful 6-mile section of this, England's longest National Trail, gently rising over clifftops and passing rocky coves, sandy beaches and the exquisite little harbour of Polkerris. There's a wealth of wildlife to spot, literary connections to make, a castle and lots more. We start with a short bus trip (NB on Bank Holidays a cross country walking route to Polkerris will be substituted) then begin our hike at Polmear where there are soon expansive views over St Austell Bay to our south and west. Rounding the tip of Gribben Head, marked by a "daymark" tower which is visible for miles (CEREAL BAR provided here, included in experience), we get our first sighting of our destination - the natural estuary harbour of Fowey. The path clings closely to the edge of low cliffs and drops to cross several small streams, bringing us to St Catherine's Point and castle, before we make our way through part of the pretty town and an optional teashop stop for lunch or a cream tea (not included in Experience price). Fairly easy walking means you arrive into the stunning harbour town of Fowey, ready to enjoy the picturesque boating scene and the rest of your day.
Former Duke of Edinburgh Award leader, Local Authority public rights of way team member and currently volunteer rep for the South West Coast Path Association, I am an experienced and passionate walker. I have good knowledge of local plants and wildlife to help you identify what you are seeing. I love to share my home town and my home stretch of the stunning coast path with friends and visitors. My family dates back in Cornwall to the 1500s and I have lived in Fowey for ten years. I will lead you safely and keep you informed and entertained as we walk.
