Firstly I am morbidly obese and completely unfit and 100% loved this walk! We were staying at a campsite near to Talland so decided to do the SW coastal path onto Looe. It is a very varied section of path with steep steps, hills and...More

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

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!
