Walks in Cornwall near Helston
Walks in Cornwall near Helston. Helston is the start of this walk and is only 25 minutes from Tehidy Holiday Park.
Head down the High Street and pick up a pasty and a drink on the way.
Past the Jubilee Pool and on the far side of the bridge pick up the path on your left.
Penrose House is about 2km down the path. The beach is another 2.25km. Starting with woodland and then fields and lake views, the walk has a lovely mixture of scenery. There’s even a cafe by Penrose House. The picture shows the lake view down to the beach, it’s gorgeous.
Save the pasty for the beach.
The beach here isn’t suitable for swimming or paddling, it shelves off quite steeply and does have a big pull as the waves go out.
For an alternative way back cross the beach and follow the path on the other side of the lake back up to Helston, this side is a couple of kilometers further.
