The Cove Cornwall - TR19 6XH The Cove Cornwall
A gentle stroll, but on a rough path with steps and some fairly steep ascent, around the rocky point of 'Buzzard Tor' and through the patchwork remnants of nineteenth-century flower gardens. People have been living on the hillside above the turquoise sea since the Stone Age, and the walk passes beneath two hamlets dating back to medieval days. It celebrates the breathtaking scenery and the clear bright light that brought many artists and writers to Lamorna.
