My wife and I did Fowey to Looe today. The Polruan to Polterro stretch is very hilly. The 7.9 miles is like a roller coaster. If you are not in hiking shape it will be difficult at best. But it is absolutely beautiful. You will...More

As others have reported this is a tough walk, we did it in reverse meaning the hardest part of the walk came first. We were rewarded with some fantastic views on the way and a huge sense of achievement when we completed it. Well worth...More

We set off from Polruan at 11.15am and arrived in Polperro at 3.30pm. The walk is very scenic but be prepared for some very harsh steep hills and lots of stairs (nearest to Polperro). Make sure you have plenty of water with you and some...More

This was quite a tough stretch of the coast path not least because it was so hot. There was one point where the way marking was lost which was complicated. Also the path was quite perilous at the cliff tops in places. Despite that, outstanding...More

We have just come to Polperro and found the car park attendant very unhelpful and 😡 grumpy! Certainly no service with a smile! We are in a motor home - they want £9 for us to park - I don’t think so !!! We had...More

Beautiful walk between two stunning Cornwall locations. Buses and ferries can return you to the location you began. It is reasonably challenging especially in the first 2-3 kms out of Polperro. One of the highlights of our recent Cornwall trip.

A really great walk (although we actually got the bus from Polruan to Polperro and walked back), it is a testing walk - there is not much flat - but the views and scenery make it very worthwhile... Make sure you make the effort to...More

This is a beautiful walk. Can bet steep in places but worth the climb. Great views of Polperro and across the cliffs and bays. Good shoes are needed!

Hi, the bus runs from Polperro to Polruan, not that often, so you do need to plan your walk and timings. From memory it was the 481 and the timetable on line did prove accurate for us when we used the service in the other... More
