At Lamorna House there is no such thing as a 'standard' walking holiday. If you don't want to walk every day, that's fine. If you want five long days walking, that's fine too. Just want a couple of hours walking a day follwed by a long, lazy lunch? Great. We can arrange that too. Scroll down for a sample of our previous holidays.
We are lucky - we usually want to do the same things, but we appreciate that not everybody does want to, or can. So if only one of you is a walker, you can both come on holiday and we will work out a Plan B for the other. Plan B also works for horrid blisters, torrential rain, sprained ankles or, as in our case, too many oysters....
Our holidays are perfect if you don't want to walk every day. There are some great options for a day off (or two) in West Cornwall, and we will still drive you there and pick you up. Have a look at our 'Play' page for more ideas.
We honestly think the path speaks for itself, and we want you to discover it for yourself. So we're not going to tell you all about it here. What you do need to know is that this is not a stroll in the park. Some stretches are nice and steady, some involve clambouring over boulders, and some are through cliff-edge hugging sub tropics.
There are parts of this walk which will require you to be able to raise your knee well above hip height (the boulders - see previous section). So you will need a certain level of fitness. But don't forget, this is a bespoke holiday. If one of you is fitter than the other, we can work around that. Its your walk.
Walking this stretch of the coast path you WILL need walking boots, or good walking shoes. This is not a walk for trainers. You should also have waterproofs, a comfortable day sack or rucksack, layers and (seasonally) gloves and a hat. Binoculars will definitely enhance your walking experience, and you won't regret carrying a swimming costume with you!
