A O Lets Go

a month ago


Small car park, but well laid out paths. Took us a couple of hours to slowly walk to the beach edge and back the same way, round the lake would take quite a long time! It wasn’t great weather but we managed to stay dry hiding under the trees. Nothing was open when we went as it was Xmas day but looks lovely. Easy wandering

Some really nice family trails to wander around. Nothing too strenuous and pushchair friendly. We didn’t rent bikes but apparently you can rent them locally for the day.

Lovely walk to loe bar and down to porthleven. Free parking but donations in cash. Beautiful place with stunning views. Absolute must. Dog friendly walk

Some lovely walks around the estate, woods and lake. Coffee shop, toilets & the walled garden are at the stables. We walked from the Penrose Hill Carpark. Beautiful walks around the lake to Loe bar.

Lovely walk, with a beautiful beach- ideal for relaxing and eating picnics but swimming is not permitted (dangerous rip tides). Friendly cafe with nice coffee, ice creams and cakes. As everyone else has mentioned there is a bridge missing off the walk, so this will add on to your time! that's why I scored it 4!
