If you’ve glanced at this blog before, you’ll know that I’m really all about the food. I like a walk through Cornwall’s beautiful woodlands or along the coast path as much as the next person, but I find the walk is best enjoyed retrospectively, with a large piece of cake or a good lunch in front of me.
If you also like to have something delicious planned into your day when you head out for a walk or bike ride, have a look at our ideas for your next stay with us at Treworgey. These are walks that we know are beautiful, peaceful, dramatic or all three, and that you can tie in perfectly with a decent bite to eat. Enjoy!
