Cornwall

Date: 10th – 12th June (end Week 7)

We will be staying at the National Trust’s Penrose Bunkhouse at Chyvarloe (near Lizard Point) and walking the South West coast path featuring some stunning cliffs and sea views. Located on a peninsula in the far south west of Great Britain, Cornwall is almost surrounded by the sea and can boast a magnificent 300 miles long coastline. There are lots of things Cornwall is well loved for: the dramatic coastline with its rugged cliffs and captivating fishing harbours; the spectacular beaches; and then of course who can forget famous Cornish pasties and luscious cream teas?

We will be staying in the Stair Cottage in Newlands Valley of northern Lakeland. From the cottage, we’ll be able to walk around Grasmoor and the circuit of Robinson-Hindscarth-Dale Head. The second walk mentioned is one of the most picturesque in the area, the section on Catbells – see the picture in the poster – is especially beautiful. Prepare for some rugged and mountainous walk, though it should be achievable by most people. See the trip poster for more information. Sign up for this and other trips using the booking form.
