Romantic Valentine’s Day Walk in Cornwall

Why not take a Valentine’s Day walk in Cornwall?

Start: Polzeath Beach Car Park – PL27 6TBFinish: Port Quin CrossLength : 2.6 miles (4.2 km)

A famous wartime poem and a breathtaking sandy cove surrounded by gorse and woodland, with a rocky archway to a collapsed seacave, this is a truly romantic setting. There are spectacular views out over Padstow Bay and beyond, as well as a puffin island and volcanic pillow lavas. Look out for the plaque, just around Pentire Point, commemorating the occasion when poet Laurence Binyon sat on these cliffs and was moved to compose “For the Fallen”, which was published by the Times newspaper in September 1914. The plaque quotes the fourth stanza of the poem:

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”
