There is great walking in this area – with the North Cornwall Coast Path snaking around high headlands and beautiful beaches. Whether you have your dogs with you, have all the hiking kit, or prefer a casual stroll in your flip flops – there are plenty of options.

We like ‘I Walk North Cornwall’ – with all the great walks, and with QR codes with the details for for each walk, so you can use your smart phone to download all directions before you leave – clever!
The Cornwall In Focus website. This details each section of the Coastpath.
The Cornishman website also has some detail and photos of the walks between Padstow and Porthcothan.
And ExploreSouthWest talks you through each leg of the journey coming from Padstow to Constantine.
The official South West Coast Path website covers the whole of the coastline and has detail on Mawgan Porth to Constantine, as well as some walks suitable for wheelchairs around Padstow.
Cornwall Council’s interactive map is great for finding footpaths and public rights of way to explore.
The whole of our area of North Cornwall is very well served by buses. In fact, you may well have wondered about the huge double-deckers that seem to appear round sharp bends, and the smaller minibuses which always seem to fill your mirrors just as you are trying to do a quick turn in the road.
Well – these buses can be helpful too. They’re perfect for getting home after a walk along the coastpath. So head out from your house, have a wonderful walk, perhaps some lunch at a pub or a sandwich, and then finish up being brought home by bus! What a joy!
