West Country winter walks...

Picture by Rob Gilles
We all eat too much in December, right? What better way to work it off than with a bracing winter walk - perhaps joining in with some of the group walks offered by Ramblers' Winter Walks Festival

You'll want to get your scarves, hats, gloves and boots on for these...

At 10:30am on Sunday 16th December, work up an appetite for a hearty pub lunch on this walk from Hendersick car park via Talland and Watergate to Looe and back. Make sure you bring boots, a drink, and of course money for lunch at Looe! No dogs allowed.

On Sunday 16th December at 11am in Padstow, meet the RA Camel Group at Treyarnon Bay car park for a 7 to 8 mile, four hour walk to St Merryn, Constantine Bay.

After meeting at 2pm on Friday 28th December at Constantine car park, by the church, join others for lovely three mile walk to the river at Scott's Quay via Ponjeravah. The walk supports the Change4Life movement

The walks listed here are intended primarily for members of Ramblers. Non-members are welcome to join as guests on two or three walks, though if you walk with a group regularly you will be expected to join Ramblers.

Of course, you don't have to go on an organised walk. There are endless options for scenic moorland, countryside and coastal walks in the West Country to suit all levels and abilities.

Use the Advanced Search facility on our website to help you find just the right place to stay to take advantage of the best winter walks on offer, or give our expert telephone team a call on 01647 433593 for some help. 

Wrap up warm and enjoy the winter wonderland!
