Two of our Favourite Walks from The Beacon Hotel

Situated on the beautiful North Cornwall coast the Beacon Country House Hotel is perfectly situated for walkers of all abilities

Over the past few months we have been exploring some of these walks and have highlighted and captured our journeys below. We can also highly recommend the IWalk Cornwall App which details hundreds of walks in Cornwall and it has the facility to direct you as you go. We have used this app and it is great.

Below are a couple of our favourite walks. For more visit our main walks page on our website.


Walk 1 – Wheal Coates and Chapel Porth Circular Walk

A wonderful coastal walk starting at the Beacon Hotel taking the lane behind the hotel and paths across the Beacon towards the coastal path. Turning right and continuing past Wheal Coates famous engine houses and on down towards Chapel Porth Beach. Stop here for a tea, coffee, or world famous ‘Hedgehog Ice Cream’ before heading back up the valley following a woodland path back to the Beacon.

Distance: 4 Miles, Time: Approx 1.5 Hours

Walk 2 – St Agnes to Perranporth Coastal Walk

A wonderful coastal walk starting in the centre of St Agnes, down Stippy Stappy to Travaunance Cover before taking the coastal path to Trevellas and on to Perranporth. Stopping for a bit of lunch before heading back along the coastal path and through the valley of Trevellas past the Blue Hills Tin Mines and back to St Agnes for a well deserved drink at one of the local pubs.

If you wish to shorten the route then you can always just go one way and catch the 87 Bus back from Perranporth to St Agnes.

Distance: 10 Miles, Time: Approx 4 Hours

Yet another great stay

Been 4 or 5 times, nothing much changes except for redecorating. A really ‘Family run’ hotel. Small, quiet, excellent location, very good food & rooms.
