Local Walks Around Cedarwood & the Lizard

At Cedarwood we provide ‘tailor-made’ walk descriptions that make it easy for you to navigate your way around the stunning coast and countryside walks in the area.

Six of the circular walks are ones you can do straight from your pod (without driving anywhere first). They have been written out meticulously by Sheila (Kirstie's mum)– who ran her own walking holiday company during the 90s and beyond.

Each walk – mostly between about 3 and 7 miles in length – has been prepared carefully so that you don’t need a map (though we do provide a 1:25,000 map in each pod for you to borrow if you should need it). You simply take the A4 sheet for the walk of your choice from the pod – and follow the directions.

There are also prepared walks located on other parts of the Lizard Peninsula such as a 5-mile walk around the most southerly point, with its lighthouse, lifeboat stations, seals and very dramatic coastal path.

An example of two of our walks – one from Cedarwood to Coverack & one  from Cedarwood to Godrevey Cove - can be seen below:

Walk from Cedarwood to Coverack (village and beach)

As you come out of Cedarwood gate go left along the road and after a few yards you will see the footpath on the right (signed to Coverack).  Follow the path diagonally across the field. Cross the stile and follow the path, cross another stile and keep walking with the hedge on your left. Cross another stile and walk straight ahead, heading for a gate.  Cross the stile beside the gate.  Then – with a red-roofed house to your right and a hedge to your left – follow the path to the trees.  Go through a gateway onto tarmac and turn right along this lane passing a long building and a house called Montana.  Go downhill until you see a footpath to your left (where the road goes to the right).

Go straight ahead .........
