Walking Holidays Cornwall & Devon Coast
Guided Walking Holidays
Our guided walking holidays on the North Cornwall and Devon border are designed to be flexible so that everyone may enjoy walking in this beautiful part of England. We usually walk around 8 miles each day with some options to do less if you prefer, setting out in the morning after a leisurely breakfast and returning by 4pm for tea and cake, with an opportunity to relax before a tasty evening meal.
Just imagine walking along dramatic cliffs strewn with countless wild flowers and shimmering waves rolling in below, possibly stopping to admire buzzards hunting for prey and visiting ancient churches. With over 10 years of experience in this area your expert guide will take you to little known beauty spots, pointing out wildlife and plants and perhaps some jolly anecdotes or local stories.
Our walking groups are made up of individuals, friends and couples who love walking in the company of like minded people, typically there are 6 to 12 in a group. In addition, we organise holidays for walking clubs such as ramblers, accommodating larger groups with a bespoke programme of walks to suit your requirements.
If you can't spare the time for a full week, we also offer short breaks with guided walking holidays lasting 4 or 3 nights at weekends and midweek. Everything is well thought out and delivered with great care so you have a thoroughly relaxing holiday.

Guided Walks Itinerary
Instead of running to a restricted itinerary, we choose the best walk each day considering our guests wishes and the conditions. The guided walks are usually about 8 miles, setting out around 10am and returning for 4pm often with options for individuals to curtail or extend the walk if preferred. There are some steep ascents along the coast but we don’t rush these, so normally fit people can manage these and our normal walking pace is around 2.5 mph. During the week there is an independent day to rest or take an excursion perhaps to visit a country house, gardens, or fans of Doc Martin can take a tour of Port Isaac.
