Walking in Cornwall.

Parc an Grouse situated on the Coast Path, offers Walkers and Bird Watchers superb Bed and Breakfast Accommodation right in the heart of some of the most beautiful Cornish countryside on the Lizard Peninsula, the picturesque fishing villages of Coverack, Cadgwith, Porthallow and Mullion are all close by.


First glimpses of the sea across farmland are an appetizer for the main course of this walk, which is passage from the tranquility of Roskilleys ponds to the historic fishing village of Coverack.   The walk takes you by Lowland Point, which is of interest to geographers as it is an example of a raised beach, formed when the sea level was once higher.


Off shore you can see the star of the notorious Manacles Rocks, which have claimed many ships. The 'John', an emigrant ship sailing from Plymouth to Canada sank here in 1855 with the loss of 196 lives; the 'Mohegan', a luxury liner, was lost in 1898 with 106 lives when she hit the Manacles at full speed.

More information can be found about the tragic loss of the Mohegan on the diving page.

Frenchman's Creek at low tide


The pretty village of Helford is set within tranquil surroundings of the Helford River, a paradise of wildlife and very popular spot for boating enthusiasts. From the quiet wooded valley at Helford, this walk crosses fertile farmland before descending to run alongside the National Trust owned Frenchman's Creek, made famous by Daphne Du Mauier's novel of the same name.


Nearby Kynance Cove at Sunset




This is one of Cornwall's special places and you will often see herons here during the course of the walk. Completion is via the picturesque Penarvon Cove before returning to Helford once again.
