Lizard Peninsula Walk (Lizard Village, Kynance Cove and Cadgewith Cove)

Lizard Peninsula Walk (Lizard Village, Kynance Cove and Cadgewith Cove)

We’ve done this walk twice, the first time was last year on honeymoon when it was baking hot all day long, the second was this year where we experienced just about every weather possible. It’s probably my favourite walk that we’ve done in Cornwall It’s got great views, plenty of climbs and ascents, beautiful beaches, stunning cliffs, a fantastic cream tea and brilliant pub during the walk plus pubs and cafe’s at the end of the walk…what more could you want. Length: 11 miles Start/Finish: Car park on the green in Lizard Village (Approx SW703125) Refreshments: there’s some great Cafe’s and Pubs in Lizard village along with a couple of pasty shops, a cafe at Kynance cove (excellent cream tea). The Cadgewith Inn at...

Farndale Daffodil Walk

Farndale Daffodil Walk

This is a short but stunning walk if you pick the right time of year, as there are literally thousands of daffodils covering the ground as far as the eye can see. It’s best not to go on a weekend as it’s usually packed with tourists but you really do need to go and give it a go sometime. It’s also not far from some excellent moorland haunts and coastal villages so you can always do it as part of a day out. If you want to make it a bit longer you can head past the Feversham arms up the bank to The Lion at Blakey Ridge or take one of the many paths that lead up and around the valley. Distance: 4 Miles Terrain: Woodland paths Best time of year: Spring so the daffodil’s are in full bloom. Refreshments: Daffy Cafe at High mill and Feversham arms...

Blakey Ridge and Rosedale Circuit Walk

Blakey Ridge and Rosedale Circuit Walk

The Lion Inn at Blakey Ridge, North Yorkshire is one of my favourite places no matter what the weather, it’s always got a great atmosphere and serves great food all day, It also has a decent selection of cask ales to sup after a walk. It’s also a great place for walking with loads of linear and circular routes near by, not to mention it being a stop off on the coast to coast walk. This particular route is one of the walks we do quite a lot, it’s a nice length for a quick afternoon walk at just over 11.6 miles and there’s a little bit of ascent and descent plus a couple of pubs and tea rooms in Rosedale if you fancy a stop. The scenery is also pretty stunning no matter what the weather and we’ve done it in just about every type of...

Gunnerside 10 Mile Circular Walk (with pubs)

Gunnerside 10 Mile Circular Walk (with pubs)

This walk was supposed to be done from Gunnerside, to Reeth taking in the lower path that we decided not to take on our Coast to Coast walk, however we decided we didn’t want to wait for the bus to from Reeth to Gunnerside so drove straight to Gunnerside and thought we would do a circular walk. We nipped into the Kings Head for a pint (the delicious Askrigg Ale) and what turned out to be the biggest sarnie (swaledale cheese and chutney) and most tasty chips we’ve had in a long time…all for a fiver too. PLEASE NOTE THE KINGS HEAD IS NOW CLOSED (12/06/13) so it’s worth detouring to the farmers arms at Muker for refreshment The walk starts directly opposite the pub, by taking the public footpath on the right hand side of the bridge, follow the...
