St Mawes & St Just - Sponsored by Hotel Tresanton

From 21 October 2011

Sponsored by Hotel Tresanton. Take in St Mawes castle and the Carrick Roads on this peaceful walk.


From the quay at St Mawes turn left and follow the road along the sea front towards St Mawes Castle.

A visit to the castle is well worthwhile and we recommend you take some time to enjoy the fantastic views. From the Castle continue north along the coastal footpath; the path runs adjacent to the Carrick Roads for a distance of about one mile at which point it forks left and right.

Take the left hand fork and continue to follow the path along the shores of the Carrick Roads to St Just.

When you arrive take some time to explore the church before picking up the road and heading east up the hill.

When you arrive at ‘Church Town Farm’ pick up the footpath which will head south adjacent to the road. After half a mile you will re-join the A3078 which you need to follow for just over half a mile before picking up the footpath on the left.

The path doubles back at this point and can be followed for another 100 yards where there is a turning left off the main path which will take you down past Bosloggas to the Percuil River.

When you arrive at the river the path turns south and follows the shores of the river all the way back to St Mawes or continue along the road back to St Mawes if you’re feeling tired.


6.5 miles and approximately 3 to 4 hours.
