Coast to Coast Cornish Trek

Cornwall has a distinctive and colourful culture, with its dramatic natural beauty and landscapes shaped by a history full of character and turmoil. Its past, from mining and china clay to fishing and smuggling, has inspired tales from Jamaica Inn to Poldark. Our wonderful and rewarding weekend’s trek takes us from Cornwall’s north coast, up over the county’s hilly spine and down to the south coast, finishing at the beautiful dunes of Par Sands.

En-route you take in flat riverbanks, hilly farmland, secluded wooded gorges and wild coastline, as you immerse yourselves in this diverse, beautiful county.

Day 1: Meet Campsite

You will meet at our campsite near the small village of Lanivet, in central Cornwall, for a trek briefing and dinner, and get to know the rest of your group with a sociable evening in camp. Night camp.

Day 2: Padstow – Lanivet

After breakfast, we transfer you (approx. 30 mins) to the historic fishing port of Padstow on the coast of North Cornwall; here, the first part of your trek takes you inland along the banks of the estuary. It’s flat, providing your legs with a good warm-up and a very scenic trek up to Wadebridge.

You will leave the Camel and tackle a long, fairly steady hill through fields and woodland, with wonderful views of the green rounded hills around you arriving at the small village of Lanivet, where a short distance away will be your campsite.

Night camp.

Trek approx. 14 miles / 23km

Day 3: Lanivet – Par Sands

A shorter day lies before you, though a hillier one, as you cross high rolling farmland. You continue your trek, on paths and

narrow country lanes before encountering  the beautiful Luxulyan, a steep-sided, thickly wooded valley.

Your route takes us under the Treffry Viaduct, built in the 1830s

Your route is then predominantly downhill, with a few undulations, before coming to the Par Canal. You then continue on flat paths through Par, known for its china clay, to the coastal path.

This is where your trek ends, overlooking the wide bay and sandy beach at Par.

After a group photograph, you are transferred back to the campsite (approx 30 mins) to pack up and head for home after an exhausting but exhilarating weekend!

Trek approx 9 miles / 16km
