Free walks in Cornwall

The following walks are excepts from my walking guides. Each walk is complete and available as a .pdf that you can deliver to your phone or you can print out. In order to receive these free walks you will be asked to sign-up to my newsletter. I e-mail roughly once a month with news on Cornwall or events and activities, nothing onerous and you can unsubscribe at any time.

To read more about any of the individual books click here.

At the bottom, there is also a selection of my columns that I used to write for the Cornish Guardian. They are a light-hearted look at life in Cornwall.

The Cotehele Estate

This highly scenic walk takes you through woods, fields and river valleys in a hidden corner of Cornwall. As you walk, you can explore the remains of industries long gone. Large buildings lie in ruin, a water wheel still turns, and massive chimneys rise up through the woods. The walk begins and ends at a historic quay and from here it is a simple walk up to Cotehele House sitting in the middle of the walk.

Do we need a fairer deal for the old? How to hang wallpaper in a ballgown and how to survive long distant car journeys. These shots are a lovely, light-hearted collection. They will make you laugh out loud, stop and think about larger concerns or just enjoy the beautiful descriptions of a gorgeous world as seen through her eyes.
