They do great lunches too. Park in the honesty car park at the bottom of the hill as you get down to the sea front. From here follow the lane to the left, along the sea front and up behind some houses.

After the jetty in the disused quarry look out for the many orchids on the banks as you drop down to Godrevy Cove ( old pirates haunt). Take path, from the back of Godrevy Cove, up valley to Rosenithon. Go left at the T junction, at the top of the lane. After 1km look out for gate and stile on left, this path runs roughly parallel to the road through a nature reserve, across a field and into a second wooded nature reserve with ponds. This brings you back onto the lane near Roskilly’s. Back onto the road past Roskilly’s and take path signed to Coverack (approx 150m).
