Walking and cycling in Cornwall
Treworgey is the perfect base for a walking holiday, with beautiful routes right from your garden gate and the coast path just a few miles away.
Farm walks: We have produced a pocket-sized map of walks over our 150 acre farm. You should find one in your cottage, but if not, grab one from the office or info room.
Walks from Treworgey: We leave OS maps in every cottage (with more available at the office) and at the Info Room, you'll find a big folder full of walking ideas, both from Treworgey and nearby.
Walks from the Looe Line: The following Looe Valley Line Trails are all accessible from and end at stations along the Looe Valley Line. www.carfreedaysout.com/looe.html or www.railaletrail.com/looemap.htm
South West Coast Path: Find out more about the longest National Trail and walking it. www.swcp.org.uk or go to www.southwestcoastpath.com to see maps of shorter day walks, including some lovely ones not far from Treworgey.
Looe Island: Walk on the beautiful island nature reserve. Boat trips out to the island leave from the Looe Lifeboat station http://www.cornwallwildlifetrust.org.uk/node/3205
Wild Food & Foraging Walks: We occasionally run foraging walks at Treworgey with the wondeful Emma Gunn. Otherwise, you could look at organising a walk with Rachel Lambert. Tailor-made or join a group. www.wildwalks-southwest.co.uk
To cycle from Treworgey, you need to be pretty fit due to the hills (or on an e-bike!). For family bike rides or gentler options, there are some lovely routes that you can drive to without much ado. In particular, the Camel Trail offers a compeltely flat option with stunning views.
We encourage keen road or mountain bikers to speak to Andy (Holly's husband) when you're here, as he is very keen on both and knows the local area well!
Cornish Cycle Hire: Great bikes (including ones with electric motors to battle all these hills!) either delivered to you at Treworgey or pickupable from their lovely farm shop and tea room at Pensilva (where they will point you in the direction of some great cycle routes).
