Since 1988 we have shared Cornwall's Wild Celtic charm with thousands of guests from all over the world. Many of them have told us that Cornwall is one of the most beautiful places they have ever explored on foot.
Our comprehensive knowledge of Cornwall and it's local micro climates enable us to select the best areas to explore, so you can immerse yourself in the beauty and tranquility of the dramatic Cornish coastline, scenery, history and wildlife.
Cornwall juts out into the Atlantic Ocean and is Britain's most south westerly point. It is consequently the mildest part of the United Kingdom. Surrounded by sea on three sides, its fourth border the Tamar River, has for thousands of years presented a formidable barrier to "would be invaders", leaving Cornwall decidedly Celtic in character. Incredibly, Cornwall possesses the longest coastline of any county in England - up to 686 miles if you follow every little inlet and headland in and out at high tide!
We have spent a lifetime exploring the many facets of this beautiful part of Britain - and are still having quite an adventure doing so, with new discoveries being unearthed every year - then sharing them enthusiastically with all with our guests.
Cornwall has some of the most spectacular coastline in the world, with deeply wooded tidal estuaries which reach far inland, where wooded banks of predominantly ancient oaks flourish - some of which represent the relict prehistoric tree cover that once cloaked most of lowland Britain, over 6000 years ago. Pretty little villages and quaint fishing harbours abound - where local artist's communities thrive.
There are an astonishing array of wild flowers (many of them quite rare) that will quite literally take your breath away. Cornwall is also renowned for its bird life and sub tropical gardens, of European and international importance.
We called ourselves "Adventureline" because our walks, although relatively easy, do nevertheless combine an opportunity for adventure. Most people enjoy a bit of adventure, so for example we often visit remote coves at lunch time - when perhaps some of the group might go swimming and others might explore the coves, rock pools and huge caves which abound around our coastline. Or you may prefer to simply sit back amongst the wild flowers on the cliff top, observing the seals and birds, or simply gaze at the breathtaking views. Whatever you choose to do at such times, you can relax from the rigours and stresses of everyday 21st century life.
Cornwall is packed full of stunningly beautiful places - and a new one awaits you around every corner. You will meet 'like minded' hikers, stay in excellent accommodation, eat fine locally produced food, enjoy healthy invigorating exercise - and discover nature at its finest.
We provide an “all in” weekly package, which includes 7 (or 14) nights character Cornish accommodation, with tasty cooked breakfasts, excellent evening meals, 5 (or 10) days of guided hiking with healthy packed lunches provided and transport to and from the walks. We usually walk Mondays through Fridays, with Saturday reserved for travel to and from Cornwall - and Sunday being a free day for rest, personal exploration and/or acclimatisation.
All inclusive prices for our Cornwall walking holiday weeks in 2013 will range from £593 in B&B's (evening meals at your own cost) - up to (typically) £750 if staying in a good 'half board' option, with breakfast and evening meals included. Full details of the various options are in our brochure.
Our overall aim is to walk, look at and immerse ourselves in the nature and spirit of Cornwall. We have been careful to design your holiday to give you time to enjoy the splendid countryside and coast – and we will share our in depth knowledge of Cornwall’s nature and history with you.
We measure our success by the fact that a considerable number of our guests return year after year. Such is their loyalty, that over the past sixteen years, we have developed quite a few exciting foreign destinations too, so that satisfied customers are able to travel with us again and again - for once they have experienced our style of operation, they not only want to return to Cornwall, but they also trust us to take them somewhere new and have fun, knowing that we will take care of everything. We promise you an experience that you'll treasure for many years to come.
