This section offers a bit of everything, sweeping sandy beaches, ideal for a paddle, reminders of Cornwall’s tin mining culture and tiny picture postcard fishing villages nestling at the end of narrow river valleys. At Land’s End the surf comes all the way from America to break against ancient rocks to stunning effect. Finally, our ways turns east along the south passing Mousehole and Penzance and the end of one of the finest walks coastal walks anywhere!

From here continue on to Trevone Bay and Harlyn, two beautiful sandy beaches, popular with surfers. The path reaches Trevose Head where on clear days you can see both St.Ives and Newquay.

A short day which should give you enough time to discover beautiful St Ives, with its museums and galleries. Skirting the Hayle Estuary, which is noted for its seabirds and waders, the path passes along the dunes above Porth Kidney and then passes beautiful Carbis Bay to reach St Ives town.

Like elsewhere on the surrounding coast, by the beginning of the 20th century, the fish stocks became depleted and the fishing fleet largely disappeared from St Ives. However, as early as 1811 Turner visited to paint the seascapes and by the late 1880s there were several artists installed and the town became famous. It is also a great place for fish 'n chips.

    4.5 hours

  • Distance

    6.5 miles

  • Ascent/Descent

    280/180m

Enjoy a hearty breakfast as there are some tough up and down and occasionally boggy walking for the next two days. Fortunately the days are quite short in distance and the seascapes are beautiful!  After the River Cove, you descend to rocks where you can sometimes see seals. There is then a final steep climb going inland to the village of Zennor. It has a quaint church, a small museum on Cornish life, and a great old pub called The Tinner’s Arms.

    9 miles

  • Ascent/Descent

    220/340m

The first part of the walk is quite easy, following cliff tops. Later on, the path skirts inland beside Cape Cornwall, once thought to be England’s most westerly point, until they worked out that it was in fact Land's End. Continuing you pass Carn Gloose where a walled pit could be a Neolithic shrine. Then it is past the village of St. Just which has a square where ‘miracle plays’ were performed in Mediaeval times, then past the beach at Whitesand Bay to Sennan Cove, a pretty fishing and tourist port.

    510m

Today starts with a visit to the sights of Land’s End, the most westerly point in England. This is a highly developed commercial site, with various ‘attractions’. Although there can be big crowds milling around the centre, there are some great seascapes with views as far as the Scilly Isles and towards Long Ships and Wolf Rock lighthouses. The walking greatly improves as you continue and you will pass the attractive hamlets of Porthgwarra and St. Levan reaching the open-air theatre at Minack Point, dramatically situated, and built by Rowena Cade. Steep steps take you down from there to the beach and to the village of Porthcurno, which has a wonderful bay in a magnificent location. Continuing our path follows the cliffs with an offshoot trail taking you to Logan Rock; an 80 ton rock owned by the National Trust. There follows a more challenging walk towards Penberth Cove and Porthguaron which are lovely places to pause. You will pass though Lamorna, to reach your destination of Mousehole (pron ’Mowzl’), a picture postcard village with a history of pilchard fishing and now has a small artists community.

Day 12

Mousehole to Penzance

Meals

Breakfast

Accommodation

  • Time

    2.5 hours

  • Distance

    7 miles

  • Ascent/Descent

    50m

The route from Mousehole to Newlyn runs alongside the road, but an alternative inland path through the village of Paul allows you to visit the monument dedicated to Dolly Pentreath (died 1778), considered the final native Cornish speaker who exclusively spoke Cornish without knowing English. Newlyn and Penzance are both developed areas, serving as ports and popular vacation destinations.

Additionally, our Trust invites applications for small grants from local organizations in the UK that require support for walking-oriented activities. This encompasses initiatives such as establishing footpaths and bridleways, funding for the reconstruction of bridges and refurbishing huts, and bursary funding for organisations that support individuals to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors..

Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit.
