I've published my pictures on facebook and my friends cannot believe that Cornwall is so amazingly beautiful. One of my friends is thinking of taking her mum on your walking holiday:-) I've recommended Walkitcornwall to her, as being based in Falmouth is definitely a better option and from personal experience, she will have a great and fun time with you.

Cornwall is a Celtic country with stories of geological wonder, myths and legends, of a landscape that has given inspiration to many artists, writers and poets. It has been awarded UNESCO world heritage status for its mining heritage and there are many International, National and local designations of Areas of Natural Beauty, National Nature Reserves, Special Areas of Conservation, Voluntary Marine Conservation Areas and Sites of Special Scientific Interest. In short, It ain't Half Beautiful:-)

Your average walking day consists of being picked up at 9.15am in my 9 seater VW Caravelle (Ellie as named by our children). Depending on the weather and wind direction I will choose where we are walking for the day. So many times we have timed our walking day to perfection dodging the inclement weather. All local knowledge and some good weather watching works wonders.

We are walking by 10.15/10.30am and walk leisurely until 4.30/5pm. Lunch is a real packed lunch consisting of a sandwich and up to 7 other snacks including three different fruits, energy bars, crisps, carrots, biscuits and cake. Special diets are catered for so I know when you fill out the information forms I send when you book.

Cornwall's landscape has a variety of habitats and the coast can be steep in places and then around the corner are sheltered sandy bays. So I must stress that a certain level of fitness is required. You must be able to walk between 6 and 9 miles per day for five consecutive days. 

The walks are not route marches. For me it is the journey, not the destination.

We stop, we take in the scenery and often we will do a five mile walk with a spot of swimming or beach gazing and scrambling. It's your holiday so like in my musical evenings, (yes a professional piano entertainer in my time) I do take requests. But in the main we walk 6-9 miles per day in different parts of Cornwall (an hour away from Falmouth in all directions) taking in the flora and fauna, myths and legends, maritime stories of wrecks and smuggling, anecdotes on mining and fishing and so much more. Looking for the DNA of Cornwall!

The Cornish landscape does it's own talking. I know when to be quiet and when you just want to take it all in.

phoca thumb m P1040665Falmouth is the largest town in Cornwall at the mouth of the River Fal opposite St Mawes on the south coast.

There are miles of beautiful wooded creeks, beaches, estuaries and sea front.

Falmouth also boasts International entertainment at the Falmouth Pavilions, a wonderful Maritime Museum, numerous art galleries and around 50 restaurants with menus from all around the world. Falmouth is the perfect town to stay in.
