Penhale Park is very popular with walkers. Being close to the South West Coast Path and the well-known 'Saint's Way' footpath, and being centrally located within the county, Penhale is in a great position to serve as a base for exploring the fantastic coast and countryside in Cornwall.
We have produced a local walking map and guide, which shows you how to link up with all the footpaths immediately surrounding the Park. From these paths you can get down to Fowey town and to the local beaches at Polkerris, Polridmouth and Readymoney. The maps are available free at reception.
There are also guided town walks in Fowey, Lostwithiel, Polruan and Charlestown, which give you the opportunity to learn more about the history of these ancient towns. There is a Blue Badge Guide who specialises in guided walks which illustrate Daphne Du Mauriers connections with the area.
There are some great websites with instructions for different walks, such as the Hall Walk, a very popular round walk which uses the ferry over the river Fowey. You can also get a wealth of information and guide books from the Tourist Information Centre in Fowey. The links below will hopefully give you some ideas and get you in the mood to get those walking boots out!
