Walking around The Roseland
There are many wonderful walks around the Roseland. We provide maps and guide books in our library with which you can plan your walks. We even run a separate walking holiday business that will organise a full walking holiday for you - see www.nearwaterwalkingholidays.co.uk
Wild Food Foraging
Enjoy a leisurely walk & learn about the abundance of Wild Food that the Cornish countryside has to offer. Your guide will teach you how to identify & use a range of edible plants, enthusing you with recipes & exciting tastes. Options for a 'cook up' also available. Prices start at £120- for half a day for up to 6 adults.
We also offer a special full days walk around Carrick Roads. The day starts with a ferry trip to Falmouth and then an onward one to Flushing. The walk then takes you along the coastal path to Mylor (a good place for your first stop for a drink at one of two cafes). The walk continues along the coast to the famous Pandora Inn (a thatched 13th Century Inn). This is a great place for lunch as you can sit out on the pontoon and enjoy the stunning views of Restroget Creek - they serve great food as well as a fine selection of local cornish ales. To avoid a very long walk around the top of the creek we arrange a boat to meet you here and take you the short distance (just a few hundred metres) across the creek to Restronget Point. From here you walk along a very small country lane and then down towards the King Harry Ferry (a car ferry on which foot passengers travel free). Once across after a short walk up the hill you soon get back on the path that takes you to St Just. The location of a beautiful ancient church set in sub tropical gardens.
After a stroll around the church you can commence the final 2.5 mile walk along the coast back to St Mawes. We will supply maps and directions as well as organising the short ferry ride from the Pandora. The cost is £15 per person (minimum 2 people). Ferry charges to Falmouth and Flushing not included.
The South West Coast Path is the UK's longest National Trail and it passes through St Mawes.
