The South West Coast Path North Coast of Cornwall

Penzance to Falmouth

George Steers - May 2015


We are back home in Seattle, now, and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for arranging our trip to Cornwall. I particularly appreciate your making the last minute arrangements for our son, Andrew (who, if I hadn’t told you before is 46 years old - more on that in a minute.) It was a glorious adventure. The range of weather we enjoyed made the trip even more interesting and exciting.

On the leg around the tip of the Lizard, we made it almost to the lighthouse before we decided the wind was getting just too dangerous, so we headed in to Lizard itself, had lunch in the pub and got “Lizard Taxi” to take us to Cadgwith. The accommodations were delightful from start to finish - we each had our favorite - and we fell in love with the pub life. I can’t remember know which house it was, but one of our hosts was under the impression that “our son” meant someone considerably younger.

They thoughtfully provided a child’s bunk bed (Andrew is 6’2”) and stuffed animals. He was fine with that, it just added to our appreciation of the warmth of our hosts. Again, thank you for your help. We loved every minute of it.

Hello Tim and Amelia, Thanks very much for a wonderful holiday. We enjoyed it very much.

For your information, the little snafu at Portloe went fine. The proprietor from Jago Cottage picked us up and took us to Broom Parc, which turned out to be quite satisfactory. I would recommend it for future stays. We didn't stay in the large house, but in the small 1-room summer cottage.

In addition, there were no places to eat in Portloe (everything was totally booked), and the proprietor from Broom Parc was kind enough to make us a light dinner. In the future I might recommend that hungry hikers book restaurants ahead.Thanks to Amelia for the suggestion to have a meal at Nare's Hotel. We stopped there for cream tea, and they were kind enough to provide us a ride to Portloe when we requested a taxi.Also, Honeycombe House in Mevagissey was quite wonderful...the view was fantastic!

Overall, the walk was more strenuous than anticipated, but we managed it fine with a few select shortcuts (we skipped Dodman's Head and Nare's Head).

thanks again to you both! Kind regards, Pat Tennis

Dear Tim

We had a great trip weather was great for the last 5 days and really was not bad the first half. The lodgings were great. The Old School in Port Issac was nice since we are Doc Martin fans. The best place was Gurnard’s Head was well worth the longer first day. The Saint’s Way was a good for a different kind of scenery.

Dear Tim,
we have just returned from our Cornwall holiday and want to say a big thank you for the great organisation. Everything went smoothly and it was fun to arrive at new places with our suitcases waiting for us. We were very lucky weatherwise with only two little showers during our walking week: while we were having our lunch safely inside anyway.

The walk was wonderful and we enjoyed the gorgeous countryside. Thanks again!

Kind regards
Benjamin & Jennifer Trimborn

Dear Tim,

back in Austria we would like to thank you very much for the brilliant organization of our trip. The accommodations were all very nice, everything, including luggage transport, worked very well and we had a really good time on the path. Even the weather was mostly dry, sometimes even sunny. But also the stormy days were nice for us since we found the waves in stormy conditions very exciting.

Thank you very much! We will recommend to our friends to contact you, when they are planning holidays in England.

Kind regards from Salzburg

Sylke and Hans
