Summer had arrived in Cornwall and just in time for a family weekend stay in Carlyon Bay, temperatures were hitting the 30-degree mark and a coastal walk was already planned, we hadn’t decided on the finer details although the destination was Pentewan via the South West coastal path. Starting out from our camp site via Carlyon Bay beach, the route is roughly a distance of 14km / 9 […]
