A NOTE FROM EMMA!

Hi, it’s Emma,

I hiked all 650 miles of the southwest coast path last summer from Minehead in Somerset to Poole in Dorset and it was fantastic!

There are so many beautiful sections making it hard to choose just 7-days of hiking but the itinerary I’ve put together really offers the best of the best.

You’ll see that the daily mileage looks quite low but don’t let that fool you!

The south west coast path is hilly and undulating with some 5-mile sections taking 5 or 6 hours to hike.

I’ve designed this trip to have a good balance between hiking, time to visit the local towns and villages you pass on the way and eating delicious vegan scones!

Let’s hike 🙂

WHO THIS TRIP IS FOR

✔️ Beginner to intermediate & experienced hikers could all enjoy this trip!

✔️ Hikers looking to experience their first multi-day hike 

✔️ Single travellers welcome

✔️ Multi passionate adventurers 

 

✅ ITINERARY

ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrive St Ives Cornwall

You’ll have time to Explore all that St Ives has to offer, including some fantastic art and crafts shops, wonderful cafes and restaurants and of course the beautiful beaches, taste testing a small bag of delicious Cornish vegan fudge is recommended! Your pre-trip info pack will have all the information on where to get a delicious vegan dinner to fuel up for the adventure ahead!

 

Day 2: St Ives To Zennor

Hiking: 6 miles / 10 km 

Highlights: Fantastic coastal views

Get your vegan hiking boots ready, you’re off! A gentle walk out of St Ives to Clodgy Point soon becomes a roller coaster of hills as the Coast Path plunges down towering cliffs into beautiful coves and back up again as you hike toward Zennor.

The landscape today is beautifully wild and rugged as you hike toward Zennor Head and Portheras Cove below, keep an eye out for dolphins! 

Today’s hike will finish in the small village of Zennor which is known as an area of outstanding natural beauty, you’ll have some time to look around before heading to your bed and breakfast for the night.

 

 

Day 3: Zennor To Tremorran 

Hiking: 10 miles / 16 km 

Highlights: Coves & lighthouses

Today you’ll journey through one of Cornwall’s most illustrious mining areas, where the miners worked in tunnels deep under the seabed to extract the ore. The landscape is littered with stunning rock formations and a multitude of archaeological remains from all periods of history.

You’ll hike past the Pendeen Lighthouse which opened in 1900 to aid ships along what is said to be one of the most dangerous stretches of coast in Britain before finishing our day having a stroll around the village of Pendeen and later heading back to our lovely hotel in St. Ives!

 

 

Day 4: Tremmoran to Land End 

Hiking: 8.7 miles / 14 km 

Highlights: Golden sands of Sennan Cove & reaching Land’s End

Your hike today takes you along the rugged paths of the Granite Coast to the beautiful sweep of golden sand at Sennen Cove. Taking in part of Cornwall’s oldest mining district and leading around Cape Cornwall where the Atlantic currents split, the path is a mixture of easy open walking along the high cliff tops and short, rough ascents and descents fwith a walk in the sand dunes or along the beach to Sennan Cove, a thriving village with artists and the most westerly town in the UK! 

There are fantastic views across the sea out to Wolf Rock Lighthouse and the Isles of Scilly as you head toward Lands End, Britain’s most south-westerly point.

Day 5: Land’s End To Lamorna

Hiking: 10.4 miles / 16.8 km

Highlights: Exhilarating high cliff top hiking

Today’s hike is a particularly beautiful section of Coast Path as you hike along high cliffs and exposed, windswept heath

Birds such as fulmars, shags, rock pipits and occasional peregrine falcons can be seen along this stretch and the incredible geological formations, including offshore rock stacks and rippling cliffs, as well as the natural land-bridge of Tol-Pedn-Penwith at Gwennap Head, add to the sheer drama of the landscape, undoubtedly some of the best of the entire Coast Path.

Day 6: Lamorna to Penzance

Hiking: 6.1 miles / 9.8 km

Highlights: Visit to the Minack Theatre & Gardens 

You’re in for a treat this morning with a visit to the world-famous Minack theatre! The Minack Theatre is an open-air theatre carved into a granite cliff and set in glorious gardens overlooking the spectacular panorama of Porthcurno Bay. After visiting the theatre and gardens you’ll continue your hike toward Penzance. Undulating hills mixed with rocky beaches and later wooded inland areas make today’s hike challenging and exciting in equal measures! 

Your hike today finishes in Penzance, known for its delightful independent shops and galleries, packed to the brim with quirky, artsy charm, you’ll be able to soak in the atmosphere with a stroll down the promendade, visit the tropical gardens or maybe stop for a well-earned coffee and vegan cake at one of the small cafe’s tucked away on the historic city streets.

 

Day 7: Depart Penzance

Time to head home after an amazing week’s hiking the southwest coast path in England but this might not be the end of your journey, maybe you’ll join a coast-to-coast hike in Costa Rica next or summit some volcanoes in Guatemala!
