What you'll do

A short bus trip to join the Coast Path at Lansallos (NB available weekdays only) then walk on rugged terrain across cliff tops, crossing streams and skirting above the stunning Lantic Bay with its white sands and turquoise waters. There are several moderate climbs (mostly with steps), totalling 360m of ascent. Pencarrow gives expansive views across St Austell Bay to Dodman Point and the Lizard on a clear day. Looking east, there are views towards Polperro and beyond. Optional visit to the well-preserved 14th century blockhouse at the end of this 4.5 mile hike. You will need suitable clothing and footwear for rugged terrain and all weathers, a water bottle (1 litre is recommended) and a rucksack or other suitable carrier.

I have good knowledge of local plants and wildlife to help you identify what you are seeing. I love to share my home town and my home stretch of the stunning coast path with friends and visitors. My family dates back in Cornwall to the 1500s and I have lived in Fowey for ten years. I will lead you safely and keep you informed and entertained as we walk.

What's included

Transport
Single journey Polruan to Lansallos

Where you'll be

The tiny hamlet of Lansallos with its beautiful church is our first call, then we walk rugged terrain across cliff tops and behind beaches. The headland and viewpoint of Pencarrow on the remote and well-loved South West Coast Path is our next goal. Looking down from clifftop path to Lantic Bay with its white sands and turquoise waters you might feel you are in the Caribbean rather than Cornwall. Excellent views in both directions on clear a day.

Activity advisory

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 8 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Guests should be comfortable with steep slopes and with being near, but not immediately adjacent to, long drops.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

What to bring

Walking boots or shoes fit for rugged and steep terrain

More tips

This is a moderate distance on a relatively demanding coastal path. There are some steep climbs on a stepped country footpath. Please ask host for further details if you are unsure whether this is suitable for you.
