One of the most gratifying things to do in the west of Cornwall is a “coast to coast” walk. St Michael’s Way will take you from St Ives to St Michael’s Mount and Penzance. Depending on how fast you walk (and the time of year and weather) this is something that can be walked in a morning or afternoon. The first time I tried this walk was two days after Christmas, the ground was firm, the morning sunny and crisp, and there was no wind (a miracle). Guest will find a detailed map and directions for this walk in the welcome pack on the kitchen table, alternatively e mail me and I’ll send you a pdf.
