Camp dog has been given a day off from his main role………………..
I (Camp Dog Harvey) am making the most of a Sunday off and enjoying a walk with my owners.
In this beautiful part of Cornwall, we are spoilt for choice with walks, and we are all now getting used to the climbs once you get out of the sheltered Pentewan Valley setting.
For today’s walk, we set off from our new home The Meadows down the picturesque Pentewan Trail in to the Pentewan village itself. As it was a good sunny still day, we joined the well marked south west coastal path. The views out to sea were fabulous and also the sight of the fishing boats out there. Provided I stay away from the cliff edge, coastal path walking is lead free for me and so I am happy.
The path is quite up and down in place, but with great views all the way to Mevagissey. It seems that there are seem good spots for fishing en route.
We arrived in Mevagissey in time for a lunchtime drink at The Ship Inn. Why are there so many pubs with the same name?! There is a new resident landlord and landlady and so my owners were sharing their new and exciting business stories with each other whilst I had a nap.
It was fairly quiet in Mevagissey itself and so we had a meander down the little lanes before heading back along the Pentewan Trail back to the Pentewan Valley. This was an easier walk, well signed, and some lead free.
I give this walk 8 out of 10. If there had been any pheasants or squirrels to chase on the route back it would have been 9.
My owners have lots of walking books and maps and will be happy to show you this, and other circular walks in this very picturesque area of Cornwall, UK. As I always join them on their walks then the pub lunch stop offs are Dog Friendly.
We hope you will come and stay with us at The Meadows touring park in the Pentewan Valley. Our friendly site welcomes motor homes, touring caravans and tents. We are well situated to enjoy Cornwall, and within walking distance of The Lost Gardens of Heligan. Whilst advance booking is recommended we do cater for tourers turning up on spec and will always try and find a pitch for you if we can.
