Parked at the car park at Menabilly and had to change our plans due to a change in footpath not shown on our old map. We suspect - but it is only a suspicion - this may be due to the farmer having issues with...More

Lovely walk with my dogs from Menabilly car park to the Gribbin Head around the coast path to the road at Menabilly and back to my car. If you are new to the area this is a walk not to be missed. The views are...More

We walked here from Polruan on a Sunday in August because the tower was open to visitors. The coast path is up and down and then there is an uphill walk to the tower, but this is a beautiful spot and the view from the...More

On a clear day this is a fantastic place to peruse the scenic coastal area if you are doing the Fowey/Polkerris circular walk which my wife and me did. We were lucky with the weather and view of Polridmouth beach is stunning. Well worth the...More

The final steps to Gribbin Head are a bit anticlimatic as its very windy and steep to reach with the actual building almost a folly with its candy stripped red and white exterior. But the walk to get to this point is beautiful with lovely...More
