Walk - Portloe & Tregenna
2.6 miles (4.2 km)
Portloe car park - TR2 5RD Portloe car park
Easy - Coastal path, inland footpaths that may be muddy, a certain amount of ascent and descent, some of it steep, with some stiles as well.
A short walk through an atmospheric wilderness above a ragged rocky coastline, starting in Portloe, where the Dawn French TV series 'Wild West' was filmed. Described by Sir John Betjeman as 'one of the least spoiled and most impressive of Cornish fishing villages', Portloe's whitewashed and slate-hung cottages huddle on the steep valley-sides above the tiny shingle beach, where fishing boats are drawn up above the turquoise water that washes around the harbour.
