The wooded valley around our cabins at Deerpark tells a story of tin and silver mining, gunpowder mills and Victorian life. Best enjoyed with our Forest Ranger, whose love of the history and the natural landscape is infectious, end your walk back at the Forest Ranger Basecamp, where you can see Victorian artefacts that have been unearthed as part of the Deerpark Dig.
Liskeard, the nearest town to Deerpark, is a short 20-minute drive away. Once there, you can choose from a series of walks featured on Visit Liskeard, with descriptive and evocative names such as Hills and Mills, Up and Under the Viaducts and Town and Country.
Looe and Polperro, seven miles from Deerpark are on the 1,014km Southwest Coast path. For seasoned walkers, there are two sections of the path to enjoy. Par to Polperro, a challenging 21km of towering cliffs and hidden coves and Polperro to Portwinkle, a strenuous but varied walk with rewarding views. If you want something less challenging, there are a selection shorter and circular walks in Cornwall, which capture the drama and history of this stunning coastline.
