Activites & Walks

Valency & Fire Beacon Walk

A superbly varied walk, that takes in the contrasting environments of a deep, sheltered, wooded valley and exposed open cliffs. It includes the village of Boscastle and the South West Coast Path. This is a challenge that rewards the walker with wide-ranging coastal views.

Distance: 5.5 miles (9 km).
Grade: Challenging.
Estimated Time: 3 hours.

Three Tasters – A Short Stroll and Look

The first of our Tester walks goes to the nearby South West Coast Path, gives a view over a picturesque cove of Pentargon before returning by the same route to the Farm shop.

Distance: 0.25 miles (0.5 km).
Grade: Easy.
Estimated Time: 15 minutes.

Three Tasters – Short Circuit

Our second Taster Walk, although still quite short, gives a brief taste of walking the South West Coast Path before returning through kissing gates and alongside Cornish hedges. It circles back inland to the Farm Shop.

Distance: 0.5 miles (1 km).
Grade: Easy.
Estimated Time: 30 minutes.

Three Tasters – Beeny Cliff

Though still a taster, this is a slightly longer walk. It’s a there and back walk which provides a sample of a very impressive length of coast. While it is relatively short it is quite demanding, with some challenging gradients and a narrow cliff path, although it does offer a superb experience.

Distance: 2 miles (3.25 km).
Grade: Challenging.
Estimated Time: 1.25 hours.

Minster Church Walk

Descend into Boscastle and then pass through the less-visited higher part of the village. Walk across fields to historic Minster Church, hidden away on a wooded valley side. After following the floor of this picturesque valley return to Boscastle and back up to the Farm Shop.

Distance: 4.5 miles (7.5 km).
Grade: Moderate.
Estimated Time: 2.5 hours.

Boscastle & Forrabury

Follow the scenic South West Coast Path from the Farm Shop into Boscastle and beyond. There is a shorter option to return directly to the Farm Shop. The full walk continues along the Coast Path past an historic open field system to Forrabury Church before circling round to Boscastle and then the Farm Shop.

Distance: 3.25 miles (6 km) with a shorter option.
Grade: Moderate.
Estimated Time: 2 hours.
