Days 17 – 20 – Westward Ho! to Ilfracombe

The first couple of days were easy, the coastal path went inland to Banstaple along the Tarka trail, so it was all flat along the estuary. For some reason the photos haven’t worked for that bit. The stretch from Croyde was fantastic, a real mix of cliffs and beaches, a real treat. Your browser does […]

Days 13-16 – Boscastle to Westward Ho!

I walk down.And I walk up again.Ain’t nothin’ gonna keep me down. Hard work this stretch. Really hard work. From the top of the cliffs to the sea at every river and stream. I’m absolutely shattered and have my first blister. The tent leaked and I was damp for days. And I still have a […]

Days 10-11 – Padstow to Boscastle

Days 5-8 – St Ives to Newquay

Following the acorns. A bit of a mixed path this one, the cliff tops are a delight, a nice breeze and almost flat paths. However a few miles have been across the sand dunes, a long, hard, tiring slog. I even took a short cut, the Fern Pit Ferry from one side of the river […]

Days 1 to 4, Penzance to St Ives.

This has been far harder than I thought it would be, my training walks on the Mlaverns didn’t prepare me for this type of walking. Its rocky, steep, slippy paths up and down cliffs. It is also stunningly beautiful every single step of the way. I’ve spent more time just looking at the view than […]
