Boxing Day Walks

Thursday, December 20, 2012

For many, Boxing Day is a time to get out into the countryside, stretch the legs and walk off the festive excesses. If you’re in or around Port Isaac this Christmas, we highly recommend you don your walking boots and step out on the South West Coast Path.

One of our favourites is the Sir John Betjeman walk, a 3.7 mile stretch which meanders through the sand dunes on the eastern bank of the River Camel (opposite Padstow). The route passes through Brea Hill – once a Bronze Age burial mound and later a Roman encampment – and of course Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman’s grave, located in the graveyard of the beautiful St Enodoc Church.

Or if you really have eaten too many mince pies and you’re looking for serious calorie-burner, pack your nap-sack and set out towards Tintagel Castle. The nine mile walk promises some spectacular scenery, finishing with the Castle itself, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur. If you can’t face the journey home, you can always take the bus – but check the timetable first!
