Wildlife & Walking
With the majority of Cornwall being surrounded by the sea, there are so many coastal walks along the cliff paths to discover whilst you’re here.
But the adventures don’t end there. Head further inland to venture across the mystical moors and magical woodlands.
There are lots of fantastic resources with suggested routes including iWalkCornwall and Visit Cornwall. Here are just a few of our favourites that are closest to Atlantic View Holidays accommodation.
Another walk straight from the doorstep is Polzeath to St Enodoc Church. At just under 4 miles, the circular walk takes you along the coast path past a number of small beaches with plenty of rockpools to explore at low tide. You’ll go past shipwrecks as well, across Daymer Bay then on to St Enodoc Church – the burial place of Sir John Betjeman. The final stretch loops inland across the fields back to Polzeath.
Polzeath to Rock is another circular route from the door. It is just under 6 miles and follows the Greenaway path across to Trebetherick Point and Daymer Bay on to Rock. From here you could catch the ferry across to Padstow to explore further or continue on the return route. It takes you past St Enodoc Church and across the golf course and fields to Polzeath.
Rough Tor and Brown Willy is a circular route that climbs to the summit of Rough Tor via the Holy Well, following the ridge Showery Tor with spectacular views to the North Cornish coast. It then goes on to the top of Brown Willy – the highest point in Cornwall with panoramic views across to the China Clay hills at St Austell (known locally as the Cornish Alps.) The route takes you past cairns, stone circles and other remnants of ancient Neolithic civilization and also the Charlotte Dymond memorial which is steeped in the folklore of Bodmin Moor.
The Cornwall Wildlife Trust has numerous nature reserves throughout the county. They have information boards explaining more about the habitat and wildlife at each site. Hawkes Wood is the closest to us. It’s an oak woodland with two streams and a quarry and is an exceptional area for spotting woodland birds.
