Welcome to Winter in West Cornwall and Happy New Year! – we would like to wish you all the very best for 2018. Here on the coast of West Cornwall right in the heart of the World heritage Devon and Cornwall Tin Mining Site we have been experiencing some incredible gale force conditions lately, which if embraced with the appropriate care can be immensely enjoyable and exhilarating. For the thrill-seeking rambler the winds can add an extra dimension to an already breathing taking environment. And for those who really enjoy the extra physical challenge – the often muddy and slippery footpaths offer extra calorie burning opportunities as you traverse the rugged terrain along the St Ives to Land’s End stretch of the South West Coastal Path during this post-Christmas period.
