Det skal I lave

We will walk a beautiful 4-mile section of this, England's longest National Trail, gently rising over clifftops and passing rocky coves, sandy beaches and the exquisite historic harbour of Charlestown. There's a wealth of wildlife to spot, stunning views, industrial heritage and lots more.
We start with a short bus trip then begin our hike at Par where there are soon expansive views over St Austell Bay.
The path joins the coast at Spit Point where there is more modern harbour activity at Par. It clings closely to the edge of low cliffs and crosses a golf course, returning through sometimes wooded paths. We get our first sighting of Charlestown Harbour from above.
Fairly easy walking means you arrive into Charlestown, ready to enjoy an optional tea stop (not included in Experience price) and the rest of your day.
Other things to note:
You will be walking in a fairly remote area on footpaths with a variety of terrain and weather. Please read the "what to bring" section carefully. Toilets only in Charlestown.

Her skal du være

We'll be following a circular route, beginning with a short bus ride from Charlestown then hiking on the South West Coast Path from Par for 4 miles. Our final village call is Charlestown, the filming location for BBCTV Poldark (on which I worked) and many other productions.

Lucy was punctual and very knowledgeable of the area along this coastal path. It was clear that she has a passion for improving the coastal path to make it more inclusive for motorised wheelchair users. Lucy is a member of several committees and strives to ensure that all coastal paths are well kept and manageable. Overall, a lovely walk experiencing local wildlife, fauna and flora with a superb guide.

On both days I walked with Lucy, both occasions were well planned, and I learned a great deal historically and geographically about Cornwall - thanks to her knowledge and personal love of the area. Even on an overcast day, I enjoyed the coastal walk through historic Charlestown - with many an anecdote from Lucy. Excellent!

Wonderful walk through beautiful part of Cornwall. Lucy has wealth of local knowledge and is passionate about the area. I had a great time and learnt a lot about local history. Lucy inspired me to walk whole of South West coastal path one day :) Thanks for being such a great host!

The guided walk with Lucy was awesome! Lucy has a love for Cornwall and she shared this with us as we walked along the Cornwall coast. We loved also hearing about English culture in general. We are also big Poldark fans and so it was very interesting to discuss the Poldark series with Lucy and hear all of her stories about being an extra. We could have walked alone along the Cornwall coast but it would not have been near as interesting without Lucy to share history and insight along the way.

This was not value for money: as I had a bus pass the host suggested I use this, saving her the fare which was included in the price; the experience said there would be snacks, but there was none; the experience said there would be an energy bar, this was offered at the end of the walk when it was not wanted.
