Duloe Manor

Cornwall, England

Polruan walking and hiking route


Walk Instructions

Start Point

National Trust Pencarrow car park, grid reference 150513. From Duloe Manor drive either via Pelynt, Lantyglos Highway and Whitecross or via Crumplehorn (shorter but more minor roads).

From the car park turn right to walk along a minor road, downhill, soon heading towards Lantyglos Church. Pass the church and continue uphill along the road.

1) At a road junction cross over to a little gate, almost opposite, and follow a path to the left, just below the road. The path is quite narrow, with a steep twisting descent before a more major path is joined; bear left to continue through woodland, high on the side of the Pont Pill valley.

2) At a fork in a few hundred metres keep left to maintain height; there are occasional glimpses of the attractive waterway below. Cross a small stream and join a surfaced roadway for 20m. before forking left to continue along the path towards Polruan. There are splendid views across the water to Fowey and well-placed seats before the start of the steep descent to Polruan, aided by several flights of steps. Head for the quay, with twists and turns, downhill all the way. The Lugger Inn, post office/stores, public conveniences and a tea room are close to the quay.

3) Start the return by walking back a few metres from the quay; turn right into West Street to follow a 'coast path and blockhouse' sign. Start a long ascent, with views over the estuary, passing a church. Turn left at Battery Lane, still rising. Go ahead at a junction with cul de sac road sign, pass Headland Garden, and bear left to a ‘coast path, public footpath, Polperro 6½ miles' sign. At the fringe of Polruan, pass another coast path sign and continue, over grass; to the right is the former blockhouse. Go right at a yellow waymark and coast path sign. Rise past a car park, a coastguard building, a slab of stonework from a former chapel and a National Coastwatch Foundation lookout building. Join a minor road at a gate, pass the suburbanised 'St. Saviour's Tower' and turn right at a signposted junction.

4) Go left through a gate in a few metres to continue along the coast path, always clear on the ground. At any fork keep to the right to stay close to the sea as the path rises and falls, with occasional small gates. At a significant fork keep right, down a few steps to a little gate.

5) After the longest and hardest ascent of the route, there is a farm gate on the right; the coast path continues through the gate. Turn left here to leave the coast path and walk along the top of a sloping meadow. There is a 'Pencarrow car park ¼ mile' sign. On approaching the road, go right, through a little gate, to follow a roadside path as far as the road junction which is close to the car park. Cross the road and return to the car park.
