Carpets of bluebells, a tapestry of wildflowers and colourful rainbows from the inevitable spring showers! Come with us on our favourite spring walks in Cornwall…
Just a short stroll or cycle from Gwel an Mor you’ll find the peaceful woods of Tehidy, at their best in spring when the bluebells are out. Explore 9 miles of paths and over 250 acres of woodland and lakes.
A secret and mysterious valley near Ponsanooth full of streams, waterfalls, 19th century gunpowder works ruins and beautiful wildflowers.
Mousehole to Lamorna
Head up the hill out of Mousehole to follow the coastpath around to Lamorna. This walk gives you the perfect spring blend of bluebells in the woodlands and the sights, sounds and sea air of the coast. A fairly easy walk once you get the first hill out of the way, you’ll end up in the beautiful cove of Lamorna in time for a refreshing paddle and cream tea!
Porthtowan to Chapel Porth
If the tide is low you can walk along the beach past the cliffs on the right hand side of Porthtowan all the way to Chapel Porth. If the tide is in then follow the coastpath up past Blue Bar, past some interesting mining landscape and down onto Chapel Porth Beach. Don’t miss the famous ‘hedgehog’ ice creams from Chapel Porth Cafe!
A lovely circular walk with woodland, a lake, beach and a tin mine! Follow the path from the car park near Helston Boating Lake towards Loe Pool.
Mawgan Porth to Bedruthan Steps
After watching the surfers at Mawgan Porth follow the coastpath on the right, up towards the towering cliffs of Bedruthan, for one of the best picture postcard views of Cornwall. Even better there is a National Trust cafe at the top for refuelling!
