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

The Lizard to Kynance

Start in the Lizard village and go past Pentreath Cove, a locals' surfing spot, and Lion Rock, across Lizard Downs and down into Kynance Cove. Enjoy the beach - there is a cafe here for refreshments and then go up the cliff on the other side to do a big loop of the nature reserve. You will pass some ancient settlements and highland cattle and then go back towards the Lizard following the raised footpath across the fields. You can finish with one of Ann’s famous pasties on the green.

Bracing walk with amazing coastal views down to the stunning Kynance Cove. The inland path from Lizard can get muddy in wet weather so boots are a must.

The walk from The Lizard to Kynance is spectatular - if you're really lucky, you may see basking sharks far below you. The nature reserve is beautiful, but can get very wet and muddy in the winter, so remember your boots! Don't rely on a late 'Ann's Pasties' lunch - they sell out quickly, so perhaps buy one to take with you on your hike.

Stunning and rewarding coastal scenery with coastal walking that suits most capabilities. Mostly owned and maintained by the National Trust with access to villages, tea shops and pubs. Absolutely brillant.
