Autumn Walks in Cornwall

If you are thinking about booking a walking holiday in Cornwall this is the perfect time of Year to stay, as  stunning Autumnal colours of coppers, reds and golds are weaving their way through the Cornish countryside, it's still warm and the sun is shining, albeit for  shorter durations - just right for putting on those walking boots and heading for the great outdoors!

Some of our favourite walks are:

Golitha Falls to Siblyback Lake

This circular walk commences at the pretty Golitha Falls nature reserve and is down the lane from us here at Badgers Sett Holiday Cottages. The children and family dog will thoroughly enjoy paddling in the water and ducking in and out of small waterfalls and bubbling brooks.  Budding photographers will also be in their element as photo opportunities abound of stunning woodland falls and rocky inlets.

If after all this activity, you have worked up a well earned appetite, you can refuel at Inkie's Smokehouse, which is opposite the Falls (note, Inkies opens Wednesday to Sunday 10:00 to 16:00).



Cardinham Wood Trails

A fantastic place for the whole family to enjoy with a variety of trails (alongside cycling and horse riding) to suit all abilities and ages from 2 to 82!  It's looking particularly spectacular right now with the leaves changing in colour to beautiful Autumnal reds, russets and golds .  These Woods are just 8 miles from us here at Badgers Sett Holiday Cottages.

Children will love following the Highway Rat trail and our four legged friends are not forgotten as they too will enjoy walks through wooded glades wading in and out of the many rivers and streams.

Minions & Cheesewring

This walk is 3.5 miles in length and takes in both The Hurlers which consists of 3 stone circles orginating from the around 1500 BC and The Cheesering Tor, the name accurately describes the appearence of these stones as they resemble a press which was once used to make cheese.  The stones are in stacks which have formed as a result of erosion over many Years.  The walk is 4 miles from us here at Badgers Sett Holiday Cottages.

The scenery is stunning and there are fantastic views far into Devon and Cornwall from the top of the Tor.  Children will love climibing the stones plus catching sight of the ponies and sheep grazing throughout the Moorland.  Dogs are very welcome too, although they must be kept on leads from 1st March to 31st July as this is the breeding period for ground nesting birds.
