Tour Overview

An invigorating and unforgettable walking holiday awaits you in Cornwall which has the longest coastline in the United Kingdom and has the most southerly and westerly tips of mainland UK. Famed for its beautiful and impressive coastline, much of which is designated as 'An area of natural beauty (AONB)', the Cornish coast is punctuated by pretty fishing villages, many of which are still working today. This 5 night holiday explores the most Southerly tip of the county - the Lizard Peninsula. Starting in Marazion, where the famed cobbled causeway over to St Michael's Mount crosses the fabulous sandy beach, the walks take in the majestic Cornish coastline with its pretty coves and beaches, including Mullion Cove, Cadgwith Cove, Kennack Sands and the postcard perfect Kynance Cove, all the way down to the wild serpentine cliffs of the Lizard, the most southerly tip of mainland Great Britain. Then track up the eastern, more sheltered side of the peninsula before concluding your holiday in the pretty fishing village of Coverack with traditional thatched cottages and harbour made from the local Serpentine stone. You stay in the prettiest of villages along the coast, Marazion across from the dazzling St Micheal's Mount, Portleven, the granite stone fishing harbour village, which is famed with the foodie community and offers a good selection of restaurants in which you may want to try the local fish specialities amongst other things. Continuing on to Mullion, the largest village on the Lizard with plenty of inns, cafes, restaurants and art galleries and at its heart a 13th century church, then Lizard itself, the most southerly settlement in Great Britain before reaching your final destination in Coverack. This is a well balanced walk and is perfectly suited to walkers who want to experience the coastal paths of beautiful Cornwall without the rocky and hillier sections further west.

Arrival in Marazion

icon Day 2 : Marazion to Porthleven

Meals: breakfast

From St Michaels Mount and Mount's Bay, follow the gentle slopes of south Cornwall and the dark metamorphic rock to be found here. Sloping fields run down towards the cliff edge and sheltered coves protect shingle beaches. The landscape becomes wilder, the cliffs higher and the coves narrower as you approach the fishing port of Porthleven where you stay for the night, with a good selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

icon Day 3 : Porthleven to Mullion

Meals: breakfast

Today the coastal path traverses windswept beaches and dramatic cliffs out towards the western side of the Lizard Peninsula. Often the gulls screeching down below are your only company, however the views are spectacular and the view over Mullion Cove alone is worth the journey. Stay overnight in Mullion, the largest village on the Lizard, with plenty of shops, inns, cafes and restaurants. The 13th century church in the heart of the village is worth a visit and the National Trust owned working harbour is very pretty.

icon Day 4 : Mullion to Lizard

Meals: breakfast

With a wonderful sense of isolation, this section of the Cornish coast path is a place of towering cliffs and rolling downs, punctuated by a scattering of isolated villages nestled into steep sided coves. As the miles pass, the landscape becomes wilder, with expansive views back west towards Penzance and the coastline already traversed, and ahead towards Lizard Point, the most southerly point in mainland Britain, passing the postcard perfect Kynance Cove en route before your night in Lizard.

icon Day 5 : Lizard to Coverack

Meals: breakfast

A peaceful and sheltered landscape of fishing coves and calmer shores as you pass along the eastern coast of the Lizard peninsular. Beyond the exceedingly pretty Cadgwith Cove with its whitewashed thatched cottages and fleet of small fishing boats, follow the remote section of coast, broken only by the expansive beach at Kennack Sands. Verdant cliffs and tree-lined valleys merge into low moorland as the path heads eastwards and away from the shelter of Lizard Point and Bass Point. In this wild region, the hills can be difficult but the views are stunning. Spend your final night in the picturesque Coverack with traditional thatched cottages and impressive harbour built from the local serpentine stone.

icon Day 6 : Leave Coverack

Meals: breakfast

Depart Coverack after breakfast.
