For a beautiful exmoor national park bed breakfast walk, where better to go than the British mainland’s southernmost tip. The walk is in Cornwall, rather than the previously explored exmoor, but it is definitely worth the visit. Cornwall is the lost land of Arthurian legend, but also holds many real claims on our sense of the past. The narrow, illogically twisting lanes are a nightmare for motorists, but on foot one can enjoy how, along with the sunken and tunnel-like tracks, and see how they are needed to link the scattered farms and hamlets. The landscape was originally settled by the Celts, and neatly planned Anglo-Saxon villages and roads are very rare.
The exmoor national park bed breakfast is near an easy walk, although it is five and a half miles long, so allow a good amount of time from the exmoor national park bed breakfast, allowing yourself time to travel, then to explore the geology and botany along the cliff tops. Be aware, however, that this beautiful walk can be very busy through summer months.
Start the walk at Lizard village, near Helston. From the car park at the centre of the village, turn right past the public conveniences along the lane signposted “Public Footpath to Kynance Cove”. By the white chalet, for right, up stone steps, on to footpath along the top of the wall. Where the path meets the road junction by the large National Trust notice-board, keep straight on past the signpost for ‘Kynance Cove and Care Park’. From Kynance Cove, keep seaward of the exmoor national park bed breakfast buildings along the grassy at the edge of the cliffs. At Polpor Cove, by the old lifeboat station, keep left above the rocky beach, cross the footbridge, and go through the hedge and climb the steps alongside the fence. Where the path meets the exmoor national park bed breakfast track from Housel Bay beach up to the village, turn left, then right after about fifty yards to follow along past the exmoor national park bed breakfast. Where the path joins the lane back to the village, keep right, along field side of the hedge, towards the Coastguard Look-out. One hundred yards past the Bass Point House and Look0-out, keep right at path junction by the metal post. From the lifeboat station, continue past the exmoor national park bed breakfast round back of the highest building, down the first flight of steps and left past the collection box. At Church Cove, turn left past the first house and up the lane towards the thatched cottage. Follow the lane back to Lizard and car park.
The Lizard area harbours plants which thrive uniquely in the area’s mild, sea dominated climate, including large Lizard clover, sand quillwort and ciliate rupturewort, all of which grow along the exmoor national park bed breakfast path. Take time to explore Kynance Cove with its serpentine islets, if you can. Along the walk you will also pass Lizard Lighthouse, which is open to the public, so if there is time then you can visit the lighthouse on the exmoor national park bed breakfast, or, if you prefer, the Lifeboat station is also open to the public so a visit there is also a good option. In Church Cove is one of the many local establishments for cutting and polishing serpentine. The stone, seen everywhere in the cliffs and rocks, is a magnesium silicate, formed by pressure and heat in the upheavals of the Earth’s crust. The veins do look quite like serpents skin. Look out for blocks of serpentine built into the tower of St Wynalow’s church, as well as in the cliffs that you walk along from the exmoor national park bed breakfast.
