Another stretch of the South West Coast Path ticked off! This time Mr Blonde One and I got the bus from Looe to Polperro and walked back. We had been staying in Looe and heard the cry of the coast path calling us to walk it. We weren’t sorry!

This stretch, as with others, gave us plenty of interest. It was very well signed as usual and also was home to a war memorial which we stopped to admire. The views were stunning, even on a grey winter’s day and we spent plenty of time taking photos and admiring the views of the breath-taking cliffs and water’s edges.

The walk was 8 and a half kilometres and took us just over two hours which was the perfect length for an afternoon stroll. Polperro seemed to be a really cute looking fishing village which will be on my list of places to visit when things are back to normal (!). It had the usual ‘killer’ steps that are a significant feature of the coast path but it also had some fabulously undulating stretches which allowed us to really step it out.

Another great afternoon’s walking!
