Overview
More
A 5.4 mile moderate coastal walk along the South West Coast Path taking in a holy legend, a 6th century monastery, an 18th century eccentric and a 19th century engineer. There are rockpools on the beaches, remnants of shipwrecks, tales of smugglers, and the walk ends with a stroll up through the picturesque fishing village of Polperro to Crumplehorn, where you can catch a bus back to Looe.

This hike is not for the faint of heart. However, it is well worth if for the amazing views. Some very steep parts Would not want to do it in the opposite direction!

We did this walk on a very warm day. Read the reviews before we went so weren't surprised by the hilly terrain. Beautiful views and the Smugglers Rest at Talland a welcome break for food and drink. Caught the boat back to Looe - beautiful!

Did not feel like the measured 5 miles to the extent that we walked back instead of catching the bus.

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!
