About Nearwater Walking Holidays

Nearwater Walking Holidays is owned and run by Tim  and Amelia Whitaker.

They are both keen walkers and sailors and have explored the Cornish coastline both from the land and sea.  The business is run from their home in St Mawes in the heart of the Roseland Peninsula.  The walks have been developed  with  the benefit of their local knowledge to ensure the visiting walker has the chance to see a few extra special places that they would otherwise overlook.

The walks are ideal for serious hikers, leisure walkers and for those who just want to get away from it all, Nearwater offers a hassle-free experience from the day you arrive until your departure.

  •     A variety of holidays from 2 to 10+ nights
