Cycle Tracks & Walks
Over the last few years Cornwall has been opening up connective cycle tracks over the whole county.
We were lucky enough in Pentewan to have the start of one of these tracks built along the old China clay railway path in 1995.
Since then more tracks have opened up around the china clay area. The hope is that one day the whole of Cornwall will be connected by tracks with minimal road crossings.
For now anyone with the energy and a bike (which can be hired form the village) can cycle to Eden saving money on entrance fees for arriving by a green method or you could explore the old china clay area or cycle into Mevagissey or up to Heligan or head to St. Austell which is all flat cycling.
Bodmin to Padstow is quite a long track that can be shorted by either starting or finishing at Wadebridge. The Wadebridge to Padstow is quite a pretty stretch as it runs along the Camel estuary.
Devoran to Porthscatho is another track that can be broken into two halves by starting at Redruth.
Pentewan is a coastal village and the world renowned coastal foot path runs through the centre of the village. Mevagissey, Gorran Haven and Port Loe lie in one direction and Charlestown, Par and Fowey in the other.
There are also several walks in and around Pentewan – along the river bank, through Kingswood and over the fields and for all abilities. Some of the walks are circular some are not but a bus service will deliver you back to us here at The Cove.
