“Stunning scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

We walked a circular route from Mill Bay to Gara Rock and back through the woodland. The scenery is simply stunning with cliff top views with many cute lambs and bluebells in resplendent glory.

“parts of it are beautiful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

you need to be fit and have no disability to enjoy the beauty, some of it's beauty is spoilt because to many visitors are making their mark, you have no chance of seeing much natural wildlife as it is being disturbed far to frequently

“Hope Cove to Thurlestone is closed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We did a few sections of this over the last week.
Thurlestone - Bantham was great
Start Point - was great (but scary in places - I am a wimp where edges are concerned)
Hope Cove - Thurlestone is closed due to a cliff fall last November and some on-going conflicts with local landowners, it seems.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Did the section between Land's End and Porthcurno. We are not experienced walkers, but this was I guess a relatively easy walk if you're able-bodied and take your time. Beautiful, rugged, brooding coastal scenery the entire way. Paths for the most part were clearly marked. The path passes very near to the edges of some steep cliffs near Nanjizal, be careful. Boots and waterproof jackets recommended.
