This was a brilliant walk although rather challenging in places. The views are spectacular. I did it with two friends and we are so glad we did it and feel quite proud of ourselves all being over 70.

We have done it very often. It takes 2 to 2 1/2 hr from Looe,Hannafor to Polperro. Some areas might be muddy sometimes but it is such a nice walk that you will eventualy forget it and remember only the splendide view points!

This walk would best be done only in the dry months, as in November it was a stinking, slippery, dangerous mess. The 'path' is basically an animal track for much of its length, and is covered in waste. There are missing steps, no handrails (even...More

As a fit bit fanatic was excited to rack up 32,000 steps Looe to Polperro and back. You need to be fit, the cliff path and especially Talland hill has its challenges

Great walk with lovely views. Some hilly inclines but then it wouldn't be a coastal walk if it was flat! Pie and pasty at end of walk t reward yourself.

I’m 75 and I did it last month. There are some pretty steep parts and lots of stairs but the views are well worth the hike. Not a problem for the youngsters. Stop in Talland Bay for an ice cream. Be sure to take water!
