Episode 6: Cornwall and Devon Walks with Julia Bradbury

In this week’s Cornwall and Devon Walks, Julia Bradbury is walking takes a bracing coastal hike along 7.5 miles of the wild Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall’s most southerly point, starting at the much-photographed Kynance Cove and finishing at the idyllic fishing village of Cadgwith.

Along the epic and scenic coastline, she learns about Serpentine Rock, visits a hut that changed the course of modern technology and gets a pasty-making masterclass.

If you want to follow in Julia’s footsteps on this route, we recommend staying at the Cadgwith Cove Inn which is located in the tiny Cornish fishing village of Ruan Minor on the Lizard Peninsula.

The Cadgwith Cove Inn has seven en-suite bedrooms and a reputation for keeping a fine selection of cask ales and excellent locally sourced cuisine. Seafood caught by the local fisherman is served to the table the same day. The Inn is over 300 years old and has remained unspoilt since the cove’s old smuggling days. The bars are full of atmosphere and relics from a rich seafaring history adorn the walls. The pub is dog friendly but due to the age of the building and its location it does not have disabled access.

Stay in a Pub is a partner of The Outdoor Guide (TOG), an online resource set up by Julia Bradbury and her sister Gina that aims to bring together information for walks all around the UK. Together we work to inspire people to get out and explore our wonderful country and what better base than to stay in a great British pub.
