The car park at Cotehele Quay, grid reference: SX 42411 68159.
Start your walk at the car park on Cotehele Quay. Follow the pink arrow to the path above the car park which leads into the woods. Almost immediately, you will see a path on your left which heads straight up the hill.
When you reach the road, cross and continue on the footpath directly opposite.
At the end of this footpath, you will descend several steps to reach a road. Cross the road and follow the path ahead for a short distance until you reach a turning. Take the right-hand turn and follow the trail through the woodland.
At the end of this path you will reach a T-junction. Take the right-hand turn and before you reach the gateway, take the left turn and follow the pink arrows along this track until you reach Morden weir.
With the weir in front of you, follow the track on the right, walk up the hill and out to a gateway which leads to the hamlet of Newhouses.
At Newhouses, turn left and follow the road down the hill. Take care and watch out for cars here. When you reach the T-junction at the bottom of the hill, turn left and walk past Morden Farm.
Just past the farm, the road forks. Take the right-hand fork up the hill and immediately pass through the gateway on the left-hand side to enter the woodland.
Follow the pink arrows through the woodland. You will walk above the weir on your left, and then you will see Cotehele Mill below you.
At this point, if you wish to visit Cotehele Mill, follow the track down the hill to the road. To continue the route, bear right and follow the pink arrows.
Follow the path until you reach a junction with a magnificent oak tree beside a gateway. The track through the gate leads to the hamlet of Bohetherick, but to continue the route, turn left and follow the pink arrows down the hill until you reach the road.
Cross over the road, taking care to watch out for cars on the corner and continue following the path downhill to Bohetherick Quay and lime kilns.
Walk around the kilns on the left to return to the road and continue walking downhill until you reach the stone bridge. Turn right and use the bridge to cross the stream. Follow the road right and it will lead you back to Cotehele Quay.
