Stay at Boots Cottage and you too could be enjoying this stunning walk…
We began by parking up alongside picturesque St Genny’s Church – just outside Crackington Haven.
With a beautiful summer’s day to stroll along with, we set off along the waymarked path across the fields towards the sea. Not long after setting off we were greeted with a blaze of purple heather stretching ahead of us along the promontory. Intermingled with deep yellow (what appeared to be) birds-foot trefoil, against a background of azure blue sea, it was a breath-taking vista.
Continuing, we climbed steeply up the stepped path to the coast path. Stunning views of tiny finely shingled coves and dramatic cliff faces were waiting patiently for unrivalled admiration. Our route took us out along the view-enhancing South West Coast path for half an hour before returning to St Genny’s – via a shady and dappled sunlit path and a footbridge over the stream at the foot of the valley. Our ascent back up to St Genny’s was greeted with the familiar black-headed local sheep grazing nearby. Leaning over the gate gazing over the distant view was a memorable way to conclude our hour and a half ramble of delight. Of course, a trip to the nearby cafes of Crackington is also a delightful way to mark the occasion!
Access to this walk – amongst many others rivalling in their outstanding beauty – is an easy half hour drive from Boots Cottage (sleeps 2/3) at Helebridge, Bude.
Although we are now fully booked for the summer period, we would be delighted to welcome you for an autumn stay to sample the delights of the stunning coastline in its autumn glory.
We look forward to welcoming you at Boots Cottage with a homemade Cornish cream tea …
