Former Duke of Edinburgh Award leader, Local Authority public rights of way team member and currently volunteer rep for the South West Coast Path Association, I am an experienced and passionate walker. I have good knowledge of local plants and wildlife to help you identify what you are seeing. I love to share my home town and my home stretch of the stunning coast path with friends and visitors. My family dates back in Cornwall to the 1500s and I have lived in Fowey for nine years. I will lead you safely and keep you informed and entertained as we walk.

Where you'll be
We will climb gradually out of the village via a small wooded valley, crossing farmland as we head for the prominent headland of Dodman Point. We'll walk a short circular route around the cliff fort, adjacent to the Iron Age earthworks which formed its major defence. Leaving the huge stone cross which marks the headland for shipping, we continue on the South West Coast Path above Vault Beach and gently descend to the village once again.

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
We have ample time to walk at the pace of the slowest group member and take photos of scenery, flora and fauna. We explore a headland, but there are no alarming drops, scrambling, etc - just walking.
