About the neighbourhood
Just a three minute walk from The Boathouse and you’ll find yourself on the South West Coast Path, miles of superb, breathtaking coastline. Whether you’re looking for an afternoon stroll with spectacular views or a challenging hike, such as a 13 mile walk to beautiful Rame Head, you’ll find it all here.

The South West Coast Path continues to the west from Hannafore Point in West Looe, taking in more stunning beauty spots such as Talland Bay, Polperro, Lantivet Bay and Lantic Bay. Check our Photo Gallery for pictures from our walks in Dec13/Jan14. Walk to the ancient fishing village of Polruan, approximately 4 hours, stop for well earned Fish & Chips (we’ll send you a link to our Local Tips map!) and take the passenger ferry across the estuary to picturesque Fowey town.
