South West Coast Path

The South West Coast Path enters and leaves Cornwall by the Devon coast hugging the whole of the beautiful Cornish coast, only brocken by the county's towns and villages. It offers particularly outstanding coastal walking through an ever changing landscape of picturesque coves, creeks and spectacular cliffs.

However far you plan to walk sturdy footwear and a basic first aid kit are advisable. Allow plenty of time, for coastal walking usually takes longer than you anticipate. Check local public transport times before setting out.

Deforestation of Cornwall and interruption of coal supplies from South Wales by the French privateers in time of war caused a shortage of fuel in the county. The traveller Celia Fiennes thus described her supper at Penzance as "boiling on a fire always supplied with a bush of furze, and that to be the only fuel to dress a joint of meat and broth".
