The West Country is a great place to explore on foot and there is wonderful walking to enjoy throughout the year. There are quiet country lanes, coastal paths across the clifftops and the rugged moorland of Bodmin and Dartmoor all within easy reach. Many of our properties are just moments from the beach and in the West Country you’ll never be far from the South West Coast Path.
Local guides can arrange walking tours for you or simply follow one of the many signposted routes to discover the stunning scenery of Cornwall and Devon. There is plenty of wildlife to be seen too, so watch out for seals, basking sharks, migrating birds and rare butterflies.
Dogs are welcome in most areas, though be sure to keep them on the lead around livestock. Some seasonal restrictions apply to the beaches in summer, but often the quieter winter months bring excellent walking conditions. May - June and September - October are also wonderful months to be out and about on the footpaths.
Take a look at our collection of self catering properties that are perfect for walking holidays below.

Higher Sea Mills is one of five properties in a hamlet known as Sea Mills, located on a creek off the Camel Estuary between Wadebridge and Padstow in North Cornwall. Built of stone and constructed all on one level, it was once the stables of a now demolished salt water mill. The cottage is quiet and secluded in all seasons, and has a large garden with lawns on several levels, featuring apple trees, shrubs and flowers. Access to it is through an iron gate set in a high stone wall, which can be securely shut. It is therefore completely private and small children can play in the garden without adults having to worry about their safety. The area outside the cottage is also relatively safe for children as the public lane ends outside the cottage continuing as a private access road, so there is no through traffic. There is a parking space for one large car or two small cars in the chained-off area between the house and the creek as well as a small public lay-by in the lane opposite the entrance gate which can be used for unloading but not for parking. While there isn’t sufficient space for larger cars, camper vans and boat trailers, you are welcome to bring up to two kayaks, provided they are left in the garden when not in use. The cottage itself is only a few yards from the creek so many river birds and waders can be seen and heard from the windows. Canoes can very easily be parked on one of the lawns, and then launched on calm inland water a few yards from the garden gate
- Large Garden with lawns on several levels
- Quiet and secluded in all seasons
