7 Cornish walks to get your wellies dirty
Forget cliché Bucket List destinations and add these welly-testing treats to your welly-list of dreams! From coastal wanders to countryside strolls, experience our home county of Cornwall in all it’s historic glory.
1. Hawkers Cove to Stepper Point – 2 Miles
Overlooking the sea and the Camel Estuary, there’s a chance to go over some uneven terrain, but options for fairly smooth and firm paths are available. If you have limited accessibility or are a wheelchair user and are looking to experience the fantastic views Cornwall has to offer, this could be the walk for you!
2. St Newlyn East and Lappa Valley – 3.6 Miles
Start your walk in the village of St Newlyn East before descending down into the Lappa Valley, where you’ll follow a bubbling stream along the ochre-stained riverbed. The circular walk crosses the long-unused old Perranporth railway, and brings you back into the lovely village through a small ditch that your ROCKFISH wellies will have no problem dealing with!
3. Godrevy to Hell’s Mouth – 5 Miles
A beautiful way to see Godrevy Lighthouse, this walk will give you unforgettable views of the sea below, plus don’t miss the seal colony and a peek at the surfers braving the waves. To beat the crowds we recommend visiting in the winter, but be sure to bring a pair of Neoprene Lined wellies.
4. Bude Canal and Coast – 3.9 Miles
Doing a figure of eight walk, this stroll takes you along both coast and canal path and treats you to an ambundance of wildlife along with beautiful sights, shops and cafes in the seaside resort of Bude. Suitable for all types of walkers, take your time to enjoy the sights around you.
5. King’s Wood and Pentewan – 3.2 Miles
A chance to really get your wellies dirty in wetter weathers, this circular walk takes you along the valley floor shaded by beautiful trees and other wildlife before coming out to the sandy beaches of Pentewan where your Grounhog Wellington Boot can keep your feet protected if you decide on a little shallow paddle!
6. Perranporth Beach – 2 Miles
Wanting to wander across the beautiful sands Cornwall has to offer? Try Perranporth beach. With miles of coast to view, this beach is easily accessible from the village and is a great place to stretch your legs and smell the sea air. Wearing your ROCKFISH wellies will be sure to keep your feet dry and clean for however long you stroll.
7. Watergate Bay to Porth – 3.6 Miles
Starting on over a mile of beach, make sure to time this walk right, as the crossing beaches at Zacry’s Island are underwater except around 2 hours either side of low tide! Once you reach the steps at Whipsiderry, there is no pressure for the rest of the walk. Along with the beach walk, you’ll be enjoying the coast path with panoramic sights over Watergate Bay. But we think that the views you experience from this walk are worth the trouble, and highly recommend wearing our Neoprene Lined Walkabout wellies to ensure your feet stay toasty and dry!
We know we’re biased when we say that Cornwall is the most beautiful place on earth, but with the worldwide attractions, breathtaking views and welcoming locals, it’s definitely a popular holiday destination. We’re just lucky enough to call it home.
Born in Cornwall and worn around the world, our wellies have been perfected here, and the Cornish terrain is the perfect place for you to put your ROCKFISH wellies to the test.
