This picturesque circular walk starts from the National Trust car park just outside the little seaside village of Gorran Haven. After leaving the car park we go down to the long sandy stretch of Vault Beach before following the rugged coast path to Gorran Haven. After a walk through the village we go onto footpaths through this beautiful Cornish farmland. There is a short section of country lane before taking a farm track to join the coast path with its spectacular scenery. The coast path takes us round Dodman Point with its cross-shaped day mark, then onto a long section of heathland before returning to the car park.

You have one comment saying that the distance is more like 10 miles. I can only think that the contributor somehow was badly confused. We measured the route today, Satmap GPS + 1 other device as we were perplexed by the comment. Just looking at the map of the route shows that it must be about 5 miles long and the two GPS confirmed it. The directions at times were unclear. I will review the text and send you my notes. It would be a shame to put folk off a really cracking little walk. Rob Cooper

I did this walk last week whilst on holiday in Falmouth. It is a lot longer than 5 miles, I would say it is about 9 or 10 miles long. Some of the walk is right next to the cliff edge, so not suitable for people with a fear of heights or dogs running loose.
