Spring Walks in Cornwall

Cornwall is a beautiful place to explore in the Spring time, as local gardens come alive and the woodlands bloom. We have highlighted some of our favourite walks in the local area, perfect to explore when staying at the Carlyon Bay Hotel. 

  • Mevagissey, Heligan and the prehistoric tin mine stream - 6.2 miles
    • A demanding but delightful walk through china clay country. The route starts from the picturesque fishing village of Mevagissey and travels inland through the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan before returning to the woodland walk of Pentewan Valley. 
  • Dodman Point - 4.8 miles
    • On a clear day there are breathtaking views in all directions from Dodman Point and in spring and summer the coastal grasslands are crammed with wildflowers.
  • Gribbin Head and Saints Way - 6.6 miles
    • In springtime celandines, primroses and campion decorate the hedges and the thorn bushes among the vivid gorse on the heathland are decked in delicate blossom. 
  • Glebe Cliff Tintagel - 0.2 miles
    • A very short and easy walk that gives the whole family the chance to enjoy the best of wild and romantic Cornwall. 
  • Trelissick Gardens - National Trust
    • This walk takes you through the diverse scenery and landscapes of Trelissick's countryside. Highlight being Daffodil weekend on the 30th March!
  • Wheal Coates - National Trust
    • Walk within the tin mining landscape, and take in the cliff top views
  • Padstow and Stepper Point - 6.2 miles
    • A moderate walk around the headland where mermaids famously lure sailors to disaster.
