Having completed the local Coastal Path we decided to walk just the start of the Saints Way. We were warned it would be muddy. The warning was fair! One particular cauliflower field had been ploughed up to the hedge and had ruts of 18-24 inches...More

This path goes through stretches where the Celts walked and where you can see brands such pilgrimages. In addition you will walk through varied landscapes and always very beautiful as crops, livestock areas and forests.

Very well way-marked, easy terrain though more strenuous than the Camel Trail. On both options the scenery starts ok and gets better in the second half. The Fowey estuary and the woodland around Golant were particular highlights.

We only hiked a bit along the river up to Golant. Typical of English trails, it is casually marked so if you're looking for signage every so often, you won't see it. This warning applies to English A and B roads as well. I like...More

We walked from Par beach to Fowey after being told it was a couple of miles. In fact it was around 4.5. My five year old was pretty tired by the time we got there but it was a lovely walk with some fantastic views,...More

Its all hilly around that area, steep valleys etc - unless you can find a path along the river itself.
