Cornwall is full of endless walks; you can walk the entire coastline, walk from coast to coast or enjoy numerous seaside or countryside paths. Many of our lovely visitors to Forgotten Houses are often walking enthusiasts, from Sunday strollers to hard core hikers they come for the surrounding countryside, walks to the sea and rural retreats. There are many organised walks, groups and events happening all over the county and throughout Cornwall. Here are a few to choose from, why not book a Forgotten Houses cottage, join a group or festival and see a new part of this beautiful county?
