The Walker or Runner

Most walkers who visit us head for the South West Coastal Path.  We are located under 1.5 miles from Northcott (Sandymouth to Bude section). The quickest way to get to Northcott is by road - turn right half way down Poughill Hill and follow the lane to the coast. Once on the path turn right and head North towards Sandymouth and Duckpool - one of the most challenging sections of the path but the scenery is breathtaking. Or head south to Bude towards Widemouth.  For more details visit https://www.southwestcoastpath.org.uk/walk-coast-path/south-west-coast-path

It's worth downloading the iwalkcornwall app on to your phone, some of the local walks are listed below. You pay for each walk and it maps your progress, even beeping if you go off course - great for those who are always getting lost!!

There are also a few circular routes in the area, this one for example

The above walk is the "Planekeepers Path" which takes in the Battlefield site bordering Trevalgas Farm. Its about 10 miles and takes 5-6 hours.

If you are happy to jump in the car before starting your walk, you may consider walking on some of the disused railways, The Tarka Line near Bideford, The Granite Way from Oakhampton or the Camel Trail at Wadebridge. All very different from each other, easily reached from here and all with a watering holes on the way!  We are close to Bodmin Moor with a trek up Roughtor for a change of scenery or a gentle stroll around Crowdy reservoir, nr Camelford............ its not all about the beach!!

If running is your sport, you can keep fit whilst you are away. From a gentle jog along the canal, across the sand from Northcott to Bude to trail running along the the coastal path, there is something for everyone.  Why not coincide your holiday with one of the local Triathlons or Coastal events?
