Walking Breaks

The mild climate in Cornwall makes autumn one of the best seasons to enjoy coastal walking

The beauty of the Cornish landscape looks even more stunning when enhanced by the colours of autumn. By October the summer's heat has gone yet temperatures are noticeably kinder than other parts of Britain, the result of Cornwall’s mild maritime climate

The Nare's position on the South West Coastal Path makes it an ideal location to enjoy to coastal walking. After plenty of fresh air, the hotel’s comfortable sitting rooms, log fires and luxurious afternoon cream tea make for a welcome return. There are different ways to enjoy a walking break at The Nare as outlined below.

There are many stunning sections of the Cornish coast path, most notably on The Lizard Peninsula, Kynance Cove, Sennen and Cape Cornwall. Private guided walks are led by Simon Hammond and are tailored to suit the preferred duration, difficulty and location. Below are images of typical sights along some of these routes.


If one prefers to walk alone then the hotel has recommended routes and maps to use. The chauffeur service allows guests to access any section of the Cornish coast path with ease and walk in a single direction (i.e. without needing to walk a circular route or double back).
