On the Land


Penpoll is a perfect base for walking in this truly beautiful part of Cornwall.

Directly from the garden gate, you are walking in glorious scenery on numerous footpaths, and these link into some stunning stretches of the National Trust’s coastal paths. Just to mention a few highlights - the South West Coast Path from Fowey to Polkerris, or Boddinick to Polperro; The Saint’s Way footpath from Readymoney Cove; The Hall Walk from Boddinick to Point Pill; the Fowey-Polruan Circular route, or nothing quite beats walking through the beautiful Ethy beech woods (The wild Woods in Kenneth Grahame’s Wind in the Willows), which hug the river around Lerryn to the breathtaking riverside 15th Century church at St Winnow. All of these, and more, are within striking distance of Penpoll, (less than 10 minutes drive) so you can choose to leave your car in the many National Trust car parks, or get a taxi back home at the end of your walk.

See for more inspiration – the choice is yours, and the scenery is guaranteed to be magnificent!
