ABOUT US

 

Our gentle walks offer a fun and very informal way for single people to make new friends while exploring every corner of Cornwall, including places never seen from the car.  Strolls take 2 to 3 hours max and end with optional lunch at a carefully selected pub, hotel or café.

Our first walk each month is open to Strollers past and present and their friends  so we can catch up with those who have moved on and may  be in relationships.

All other walks are for genuinely single people, and we ask that you respect this.

 

Saturday 29th February 2020

Walk Departs 10am

Location  Gerrans / Portscatho

Walk Leader Mike    Mobile  07813 290908

Meet at the free car park, Gerrans TR2 5EQ

 

DIRECTIONS

 

From the A390 take the B3287 or A3078 until you reach the bottom of Tregony Hill. Follow the A3078 signed St Mawes and Portscatho for around 6 miles until you come to a hamlet called Trewithian with the large Trewithian Farm Bed & Breakfast house on your right. Take a left turn just after the B&B towards Gerrans. On reaching Gerrans, just past the church, turn left and immediately right onto the small lane to the right of the Royal Standard pub (Treloan Lane). Continue for about 100 yards (past the pub car park) and you will see a Free Car Park on the left where we are meeting.

Coordinates 50.177080 -4.980874 will take you to the car park entrance.

Toilets will be available at the pub before the walk.

 

 

A NOTE ABOUT THE WALK:

 

The walk is just over 4 miles long and is dog friendly.

We will follow the coast path from Portscatho to Towan Beach, returning along a bridleway back to Gerrans. The coast path section is particularly muddy at the moment and is very slippery, so good boots and a walking pole are recommended. There will be a good chance of seeing seals along here.

Lunch is at the Royal Standard pub in Gerrans – please arrive in time to pre-order lunch. The pub does half-size meals for half the normal price, which may suit those with a smaller appetite.

Hope to see you on Saturday.

NEW WALKS

Previous walk details ... Mawgan porth

 

Thanks to Sheila for leading our walk today at Mawgan Porth. The weather didn't look very promising to start with (and the Met Office said there was no rain in Mawgan Porth at 9am ... so what is this water falling out of the sky?). Anyway, it turned out to be very pleasant walking weather, and by heading inland we avoided the wind that was blowing on the coast. The sun managed to shine on us, and we had a very good walk. We had a wander around St. Mawgan as a halfway break - an interesting and picturesque village. On our way back to Mawgan Porth, the water level had gone down at the 2 fords we had to cross, so we didn't have to resort to Plan B - nor wade through the torrents like Sheila did the week before.

The meal at the Merrymoor Inn was excellent, and it was good that Pat (a fair-weather walker!) joined us for lunch.
