St Mawes Round the Headland - Sponsored by Helpful Holidays

From 21 October 2011

Sponsored by Helpful Holidays. Enjoy the tranquil beauty of St Mawes and take in some breathtaking views.


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.Map St Mawes

Taking the right fork you will start to climb inland heading east and as you crest the hill you will join the A3078.

Turning right, follow the road south for around 100 yards before picking up the footpath on the left hand side.

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.


3.5 miles and approximately 2 hours.
