Phenomenal walking holidays around Cornwall’s dramatic coastline, moors and countryside – personally guided by highly experienced, knowledgeable and amiable local guide, Martin Hunt.
Martin’s comprehensive and thorough knowledge of Cornwall and its unusual micro climates enable him to select the best areas to explore each day, so that you can immerse yourself in the beauty and tranquillity of the dramatic Cornish coastline and moorlands, its wild scenery, history and wildlife – and probably in good weather too!
For the past 30 years, Martin has shared Cornwall’s incredible countryside and her wild Celtic charm, with thousands of guests from all over the world. Many of them have regularly infomed him that Cornwall is one of the most beautiful places they have ever seen and explored on foot.
Cornwall juts out almost 100 miles into the Atlantic Ocean and is Britain’s most southwesterly point. Bathed by the Gulf Stream, it is consequently the mildest part of the United Kingdom. Due to Cornwall’s unusual shape and her varied geological makeup, it makes for ever changing scenery and creates a strange property unique to the west country coastline – stunning new vistas awaits you around almost every turn of the coastal footpath. From late April onwards, there is an astonishing arrays of wild flowers (many of them quite rare) that will literally take your breath away.
Cornwall is also renowned for its bird life and sub tropical gardens, all of European and International importance. We often drop down to remote coves and beaches at lunchtime – where you may like to take a refreshing swim, or explore the beach, rock pools and sea caves. Alternatively, you could sit back amongst the wild flowers on the cliff top, observing the seals, birds and the breath-taking views. If you particularly enjoy wild flora, the best times to walk in Cornwall are between late Aril and mid summer. However, even after mid summer has passed, there are still many flowers on display, especially the maritime heathers which cloak the cliff tops in many places from mid summer until late autumn.
Whatever you choose to do during any ‘down moments’, our walks offer time to relax from the rigours and stresses of everyday life. You will meet ‘like minded’ hikers, stay in excellent accommodation, eat fine locally produced food, enjoy healthy invigorating exercise – and discover nature at its finest. Below in the (expandable) gallery is just a glimpse of Cornwall’s spectacular scenery… please request our lavishly illustrated new brochure for the full impact…
Your holiday is important to us and our goal is to make it decision free and relaxing (yet invigorating) for you. Included are 7 nights character Cornish accommodation, tasty cooked breakfasts, excellent evening meals, five memorable days of stunning walks, with healthy packed lunches and refreshments provided – and transport to and from the walks. We take care of everything for you. We walk Mondays through Fridays, with Saturday reserved for travel to and from Cornwall and Sunday being a free day for rest, personal exploration and/or acclimatisation.

Martin’s overall aim has always been to share with you what he has found beautiful, magical and inspirational to him. Not only walking, but looking at and immersing ourselves in the rejuvenating nature and spirit of Cornwall, quite rightly designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
We promise you holiday experiences that you’ll surely treasure for many years to come – ones that will give you a burning desire to visit Cornwall again and again. We measure our success by the fact that a large number of our guests regularly do return.
