Lansallos to Polperro


This is a spectacular walk but is quite tough - there are some big climbs, even by Cornish standards!  It took us about 2 to 2.5 hours one way, and you are rewarded at the end by a lovely entrance to Polperro and plenty of refreshment options.

Park in the National Trust car park at Lansallos.  It's about £4 for the day - you can pay on your phone.  Walk down the road to the church and just after it turn right then immediately left on the path to the beach.

The path is in good condition, there are steps on all the steep sections.  Do take care as there are some parts where the path is close to the cliff edge.

You can turn this into a circular walk (about 2 hours).  Park in the Lansallos NT car park.  Then walk back down to the village, go through it, and after about half a mile there is a gate on the right marked East Coombe.  This takes you down a lovely path to the sea, where you turn right back to Lansallos beach, and then follow the path back up to the village again.

Just before you reach the beach the coast path goes off to the left - from here on just follow the path!

Your rewards in Polperro - we have had good reports about the Three Pilchards, and the cafe on the other side of the harbour by the museum does nice cream teas.
