Explore the stunning windswept cliffs and headlands of Cornwall on this four-day Intrepid Retreats experience. Breakaway from the every day on the southwest coast with this unpack-once getaway. You’ll soak up the views of sun, sand and sea both from your comfortable, family-run accommodation, and on memorable walks through the history and nature of this proper ‘ansom section of Cornish countryside. Enjoy the time to slow down and get to know the places you visit, using the insider knowledge of your local host to discover the backstreets of these harbour towns, feasting on fresh seafood – and a Cornish pasty or two – along the way.

I’ve wanted to get down to Cornwall for a while and this was the perfect last trip before I left the UK. I’ve never done a walking holiday before and this was the perfect taster. Well paced walks with an excellent leader and stunning scenery. Will definitely bring doing more active travel with Intrepid in the future.
