This is an excellent walk for anybody with an interest in natural history. The trees in the parkland have on them over 100 species of lichens and there are also mosses, beetles and birds, including treecreeper, tawny owl, nuthatch and all three British woodpeckers. Nine of the fourteen British bats can be found here and there is  an abundance of grassland flowers. On the River Fowey are otters and we saw lots of dippers and grey wagtails, more of the latter than I have seen anywhere else. You could spend a long time getting round! The walk is a mixture of woodland and river, with a steady climb back up to the house.

Walked on 5th June. Had not rained for several weeks so all very dry. (Waymark 6 incorrectly placed on map, now corrected)

Walked 10 November 2020. This is a delightful walk packed with interest and a rich variety of wildlife. It is one of the site’s earlier walks and must have been up for 15 or so years - pleased to report that there are no navigational changes. Jim Arymar

A nice walk through some interesting woodland and with some good views of the house at the start of the walk. Directions were perfect, a great woodland walk for when the weather is not perfect. 9/10.
