Who Comes to the Events?
This group seems to attract people who love the great outdoors, enjoy exploring, and like tasty food in interesting corners of the county.

As you will all agree Cornwall is a great county, and isn't it more fun if you explore with a group, make new connections or just simply enjoy the presence of other company, even if you prefer to walk alone.

Let's look forward to another year of celebrating Kernow!

Coastal walk at Godrevy & Hells Mouth

Godrevy

Starting near Hells Mouth we'll take the coastal path to Navax Point, then past the famous seal colony and the lighthouse, then along the beach and stopping off for coffee and cake at the cafe in the dunes. We'll then finish off along a quiet lane to the starting point. Total distance about 5 miles. The usual crazy Covid rules apply. This walk will be along narrow footpaths, which means that it will often be impossible to remain 2 metres away from passersby.

(2.00pm) UNHOSTED Afternoon Trelissick Circular with/without Dog!

Trelissick Gardens

PLEASE START IF CHARLIE HASNT ARRIVED TO LEAD WALK. SHE ISNT HERE EVERY WEEK. Come and join in, it's an opportunity to keep fit, chat, make friends, and stretch the legs. And of course explore some of this beautiful county! There are some wonderful nooks and crannies in Cornwall so if you are curious like me you will certainly enjoy, and most walks involve a cup of tea in a nice cafe. Please bring thermos if you want to have a cuppa on route, and a snack. There will also be a chance of a cuppa at the end. Meeting Place: Outside Trelissick Toilets! Parking: Trelissick Gardens (there is a parking fee, but if you are looking for free parking there is a lay-by just on the left before Trelissick entrance, and its a 10 min walk along the road to Trelissick from there) Timings: The full walk will be approx 1.5 hours and then tea after The Route: 'The Woodland Loop' with views of the estuary for those who want to stretch legs and take dog/or no dog for a walk. Followed by a quick cuppa before the cafe closes. The daffodils should be appearing so a feel of Spring in the air. See you there! Below is some of the boring but important info!
