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 we 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

We’ll be meeting at our hotel this afternoon and 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! There will be a briefing about the week ahead before a delicious group 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, we’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 we hike toward Zennor.

The landscape today is beautifully wild and rugged and the area around the small village of Zennor is known as an area of outstanding natural beauty. 

Today’s hike will finish in Zennor where we’ll have some time to look around before taking a transfer back to our hotel in St Ives for a well-deserved rest and another great group dinner.

 

 

Day 3: Zennor To Pendeen

Hiking: 7 miles / 11 km 

Highlights: Coves & lighthouses

After a hearty vegan breakfast and transfer back to Zennor we’ll start our hike with fantastic views from Zennor Head to Portheras Cove below, keep an eye out for dolphins! 

Today we’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 today is littered with stunning rock formations and a multitude of archaeological remains from all periods of history.

We’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: Pendeen To Sennan Cove

Hiking: 9.5 miles / 15 km 

Highlights: Golden sands of Sennan Cove

Our hike today takes us 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 finishing with 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! 

Day 5: Sennan Cove To Porthcurno

Hiking: 6.5 mile / 10.5 km

Highlights: Reaching Land’s End

Today’s hike is a particularly beautiful section of Coast Path as we hike along high cliffs and exposed, windswept heath, on a clear day, there are fantastic views across the sea out to Wolf Rock Lighthouse and the Isles of Scilly as we head toward Lands End, Britain’s most south-westerly point!

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: Porthcurno To Lamorna

Hiking: 5.4 miles / 8.7 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 we’ll continue our hike toward Lamorna.

Undulating hills mixed with rocky beaches and later wooded inland areas make today’s hike challenging and exciting in equal measures! 

Day 7: Lamorna To Penzance 

Hiking: 6.1 miles / 9.8 km

Our last hiking day begins in the sub-tropical cove of Lamorna and passes through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Path changes quite dramatically as it crosses rugged cliffs, with some challenging ascents and descents as we hike into the pretty town of Mousehole known for its tiny harbour and narrow streets of granite cottages, the perfect spot for a coffee stop! 

We’ll finish today’s adventure in the lively town of Penzance, the largest town in West Cornwall, famous for its historic port, and wide range of independent shops, cafes and galleries.

 

Day 8: Depart St Ives Cornwall

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!
