the classic guide

A guide to the West Country from the people that know…

Penrose Estate

Park for free and take a walk through wooded valleys around Cornwall's largest lake. The walk will take you around Loe Pool and to the sea, across the sand bar and back along the other side (about six miles in total). For the energetic there's an outdoor gym and a cafe has just opened en-route at the Stables where you can enjoy coffee, tea and cakes. Take note though, it's only open at weekends and during school holidays.

This lovely wooded trail around Loe Poole is ideal for a family outing - be it a bike ride or walk! The path from Helston end has recently been smoothed and is now easier for little ones on their bikes. It a fantastic safe location to "get on yer bike!" For those who feel more comfortable on foot - the walk is fairly level until after the stables cafe - which is around midway if you're heading to Porthleven.

The addition of the cafe at the half way point has now made this one of the best walks with a 3 year old in the area, and there is free parking at both ends of the walk.

My favourite place

There is nothing better than taking the dogs for a nice long walk around Penrose and Loe Bar on a sunny day. The views of Loe Pool and the beach/sea are just amazing. There are so many routes to choose from - something for everyone. And to top it off there is even a cafe, The Stables, which serves both cold and hot drinks, ice cream and snacks (including yummy cake).
