  • Most accommodation in Britain is charged on a Per Person basis (rather than per room basis). The price you see here for this tour is the Price per Person.
  • If you request a Twin Room there are two single beds (usually 3 feet wide) in the room.
  • If you request a Double Room there is one bed in which two people usually sleep (usually 4 feet 6inches wide).
  • Both the Double and the the Twin room are sometimes available for Single Occupancy (one person in the room), usually with a supplement to compensate the provider who would normally have received payment from two people.
  • If the accommodation offers Single rooms (one bed of 3 feet wide), this will normally be priced higher than half of a double or twin room. Unless space is limited in the village or accommodation we usually avoid these as the rooms tend to be older and less space to move about.

Tour description

A three centre inn-to-inn, village-to-village self-guided walking tour on the Cornwall Coast Path from St. Ives to Lands End in Cornwall, England. 6 nights bed and breakfast accommodation, 5 days of walking, luggage transfer, transfer from St Just to Penzance on final morning, guide book and maps.

From the small Cornwall painters seaside fishing village of St Ives with its National Tate Gallery you walk over jutting headlands and long curves of beach. The most spectacular stretch of all now ensues, with jagged granite ridges running down into a turquoise sea, like primeval monsters going for a drink. In between lie hidden sandy coves and tiny hamlets such as Zennor and Morvah, which seem to grow organically out of the rocky landscape. You end your journey by crossing Whitesand Bay to the pretty village of Sennen Cove and strolling gently along the cliff top to Lands End itself. Here you can dream about doing the ultimate hike - Lands End to John o'Groats - you've already done some of it.
Cornwall's mild climate ensures that this walk can be done at any time of the year, while remaining not too hot for summer walking.

You stop in country hotels, inns and guesthouses along the way, where accommodation is available in twin, double or single rooms, all with private facilities. B&B, luggage transfer between the overnight stays, maps, guide book and transfer on final morning to Penzance is included.

Walk in the Steps of St Cuthbert from Durham to the Farne Islands and Lindisfarne

We are staying in Durham for three days. Your plans sound perfect for visiting Holy Island. I'm a Christian with a real interest in people like St Cuthbert, St Aidan and St Colomba and Jeff is very keen on boating and fishing. We'll see you in July.
