Hike the Cornwall Coastal Path in England

The Cornwall Coastal Path hugs the entire 299-mile seashore of County Cornwall, from Bude in the north to its south eastern terminus at Plymouth and embraces some of the wildest and most dramatic landscapes to be found throughout the U.K. As impressive as its 288-mile expanse may be, the Cornwall Coastal Path comprises only part of the greater 630-mile Southwest Coastal Path, all of which is a part of the National Trust network of trails, of which the Cotswold Path is also included. National Trust designation, among its many features, translates into excellently maintained trails and reliable, easily identifiable signage.  Typical of National Trust Trails, the Cornwall Coastal Path embraces several area of outstanding natural beatuy throughout its length.  This is a true village-to-village tour.  Each day we walk the coastline heading southwest, each night we stay in a new village.  Our luggage will be transfered between villages.

Cornwall is situated at the southwestern tip of England, with the open Atlantic to the west and the English Channel to the south.  Because of its geography, Cornwall boasts some of the mildest temperatures, the most amount of sunshine and the least precipitation in the U.K.  In addition to its most southerly latitude, Cornwall is the beneficiary of the warming waters of the Gulf Stream current that travels northeastward from the Gulf of Mexico.  During the summer months, the Cornwall coast is considered England’s Riviera, and once you have experienced the region’s magnificent white sand beaches, and pounding surf, you’ll understand why.    Another feature of this inn to inn hike is the beachside pubs, cafes, and bakeries we will stumble upon, — further evidence of the importance of tourism to this region.  Make no mistake, the pasty is an essential part of the total Cornwall experience.  We’ll hike 100 miles during the course of this 12-day program (9 days of hiking).
