Walking holidays in Cornwall

Choose your walk and find a place to stay.

Poldark Country

Go on set and explore the landscapes made famous in the BBC drama. Discover its rich mining history, rocky coves and sweeping headlands used for filming and stay close to the action in our cottages.

Count House Cottage

The Canyack 

19th-century miner's cottage, The Canyack, is set high on the slopes of the secluded Cot Valley. From here you can walk to Porth Nanven cove and along the coast path to Cape Cornwall.

The exterior and garden at Whitstone Cottage, Penrose, Helston, Cornwall

Whitstone Cottage 

Whitstone is a rare survival of a simple, cob and stone Cornish cottage. It's less than a 30-minute drive to Gunwalloe where Poldark's dramatic shipwreck scene was filmed. Take the 'Silver dollars, shipwrecks and scenic views' walk to discover more.

Lantic Bay and Lansallos

Take in views of sweeping headlands, winding creeks and rocky outcrops when you walk around Lantic Bay and Lansallos. Linked by the South West Coast Path, you can choose how far you want to go. If you're up for the challenge, vantage out to Polperro on the rollercoaster walk.

Triggabrowne Meadow Cottage 

With views across the open countryside and working farmland, Meadow Cottages offers a dreamy rural getaway. Nearby trails include the short 1.5 mile Pencarrow Head walk and the 6.8 mile Polruan to Polperro rollercoaster walk.

The exterior and garden at Tippett's, Lanteglos-by-Fowey, Cornwall


Tippett's is one of the three cottages in this former farmhouse. A short walk from here will take you to the rocky outcrop of Pencarrow Head. Follow the coastal path for longer walks to Polperro.


Further west of Lantic Bay is the Roseland Peninsula, an area of creeks, valleys and secluded beaches. It's riddled with footpaths that invite you to discover its military history, magical woodland and sweeping seascapes.

The exterior of Hayloft, Roseland, Cornwall


This traditional farm building sits within the old farming hamlet of Gwendra which gives way to the sandy beaches of Pendower and Carne. Take the trail from Carne car park to Nare Head for Bronze age history and stunning seascapes.

The exterior of Penhaligon's, Roseland, Cornwall


Penhaligon's is a dreamy thatched cottage tucked away in leafy seclusion down a narrow track. Towan Beach is just a five-minute walk, where you can take the 'Woodland, farmland, sea and quay' circular trail.

The exterior of Tiffy's, St Anthony Head, Cornwall


This characterful one-bedroom cottage was once the workshop of the military artificer. It sits on the bottom tip of Roseland in St Anthony Head, where you can discover its military history, the lighthouse and marine wildlife.
