Polperro to Portwrinkle: South West Coast Path – Part 7, Day 5

Approaching Portwrinkle on the South West Coast Path
Approaching Portwrinkle - South West Coast Path Part 7 Day 5


The fifth of six walking days this week I’ll be walking the South West Coast Path from Polperro to Portwrinkle


Approximately 13 miles – Challenging: Moderate to Strenuous


09:30 – 10:00 Drive to Polperro where I left off yesterday – it’ll be tempting to linger a while here if the weather is nice.
10:00 – 13:00 Walk to Looe where I’ll probably take an early lunch; if I’ve made good time thought this might be just a coffee stop for now.
13:30 – 14:30 Lunch in Looe (or maybe Millendreath or Seaton if I think that there are facilities there.
14:30 – 16:00 Press on to Portwrinkle for some Cornish Ale and a another Pasty before taking a taxi back to pick up my car.

A similar walk to yesterday – starting off easy and becoming more difficult as the day goes on.  After leaving Millendreath on the way to Seaton, I have a rather challenging long uphill climb. The motivation – as always – will be looking forward to views from the top and the downhill walk before beginning another steep climb.

You can find the highlights and more information on this route on The South West Coast Path website

You are more than welcome to join me on this trip and or on any part of my next SWCP journey – subject, of course, to sensible social distancing measures. Please get in touch beforehand though and I will be sure to look out for you.

And please bookmark this page and return a few weeks later; I will be posting an update and some more photographs in good time
