Guided Walking Holidays St Ives and the Cornish Coast

A cobalt sea, golden sands, tropical palm trees and the warmth of the sun on your skin as you admire the views – you might think you’re in the Caribbean rather than Cornwall.

The coast and countryside around St Ives offers some of the best walking in the South West. St Ives itself is nestled between two big bays where you can watch the world go by, or surfers battling the waves offshore. The quirky narrow winding streets of this former fishing village, old tightly packed cottages and picturesque harbour are a joy to stroll around and the town has a wealth of small shops, galleries and museums. The light and landscape of this corner of Cornwall continue to attract and inspire artists, with its beautifully rugged coastline, secret coves and long sandy beaches.

The Treloyhan Manor Hotel sits right on the Cornish Coast Path. There are beautiful walks right from the doorstep, taking in bays, beaches and dramatic cliff tops. We explore the most westerly points of England at Land’s End and the furthest south, the Lizard Peninsula. We will also explore inland villages, abandoned mining villages, visit the Minack Theatre perched on the cliff edge overlooking the sea, and enjoy lush woodland walks inland covering some ancient standing stone sites.


Holiday Highlights

  • Enjoy our base at the quirky and picturesque old fishing port of St Ives.
  • Walk the Cornwall Coast Path at the end of the hotel gardens.
  • Walk the spectacular coastal walks on The Lizard and Land’s End.

Treloyhan Hotel

The impressive three-star Treloyhan Manor Hotel sits in sumptuous grounds overlooking the blue waters of Carbis Bay just on the edge of St Ives and within easy walking distance of the centre of town. Built in 1892 of Cornish granite, the mansion was originally the home of shipping magnate Sir Edward Hain. Today it’s a light, airy hotel with impressive public rooms and comfortable bedrooms. Home cooked dinners are served in the elegant restaurant, and you can have a drink (or a cream tea) in one of the lounges or out on the terrace and then stroll down the coast path right into St Ives. Some of the bedrooms have showers, others baths. Although the hotel does not have a dedicated bar area, drinks can be purchased from reception or the restaurant for drinking in the comfortable lounges, the outside terrace or over dinner. Picnic lunches are available from the hotel including a choice of sandwich and a selection of other items from a self service packed lunch 'buffet'. Free Wi-Fi access is available with good connectivity on the ground floor but patchier in the bedrooms.
