A great walk full of historic sites and good paths. It is a few miles walk from Padstow along the coast , it is quite hilly and not good for anyone who isn't good on their feet

Myself and my partner had a really good day doing this walk. Nice and flat with gorgeous views the whole way :) Lovely coastal views and dramatic cliffs later in the walk. Took about 3.5 hours for us in total.

Not for pushchairs. Some mildly challenging inclines. Lovely views. Map from tourist office very easy to follow. Recommend you go to Prideaux Place and walk to Stepper Point towards Padstow, not away.

This is a great walk if staying in Padstow. It takes about 1.5 hours each way along beach and cliff. There is a cafe along the way if you need a coffee.
