Our top ten walks...part two

Original image here

This week we've been feeling the urge to get outdoors and blow away the cobwebs. Here are five more of our favourite walks:

1. Kingsand around Rame Head – pretty villages, magnificent views, a lonely 10th century chapel and a pub at the end…

2. Helford, St Antony in Meneage, Manaccan and back – easy walking along the banks of the beautiful Helford River.

3. Landʼs End, Sennen, Coastal Path to Botallack and pick up – itʼs quite a long walk, so best to get someone to drive round and pick up in Botallack (pub).

And two longer walks...

4. The Camel Trail – walk it or cycle it – Padstow to Bodmin and Blisland. Blisland has a good pub and the trail follows the route of the old railway line, hugging the river Camel most of the way to Padstow. Bridge Bike Hire in Wadebridge offers (surprise, surprise) bike hire and a car park – perfect.

5. Two Castles Trail – Okehampton Castle to Launceston Castle – The Royal Oak at Bridestowe for lunch. Beautiful views over the western edge of Dartmoor and down into Cornwall.

Let us know if you've tried any of these walks, and remember to let us know your favourites too!
