Terms of use

You are permitted to:

  • Print the directions out for your own use if you don't have an Apple or Android phone. If you run a business based on tourism in Cornwall, we recommend you point visitors at the app which reduces the chances of getting lost, guarantees the most up-to-date content and helps to sustain iWalk Cornwall for the future. We provide free materials to assist with this. For visitors without smartphones, you may print directions out but if you do, we request that you refresh your printouts at least once a year (to ensure you are not distributing out-of-date information).
  • Link to content on our website, including deep-linking to individual walks; we will try ensure the URLs remain stable over time so your links don't break.
  • Embed lists of walks on your website, provided they link back to our site for full details of the walk.

You are not permitted to:

  • Sell our content either in electronic or printed form.
  • Copy our content and republish it or derivatives of it electronically (e.g. on your own website) or on paper.
  • Create proxy websites or websites which embed our walk pages (e.g. in frames).

Walking, as with any outdoor activity, involves a certain amount of risk. In Cornwall, unfenced cliffs, quarries and mines, large farm animals and steep gradients make these risks more significant than in many other areas. This is particularly the case poor weather when footpaths can be slippery, high winds can cause loss of balance and navigation can be hindered by fog. We accept no responsibility for any injuries or loss caused to walkers following the routes outlined on this website. We recommend you read the pages on walking safety on the Southwest Coast Path website and advice for walkers on livestock by the National Farmers Union. Before setting out on a walk, consider the kinds of risks you (and any children or dogs you are responsible for) are likely to encounter in a rural environment, and pay very careful attention to the weather conditions and forecast.

Whilst considerable effort has been taken to ensure the accuracy of directions, we make no guarantees and by walking the routes you take full responsibility for navigating around any errors or omissions in the directions and any changes in the routes of footpaths since the directions were written. If you have a suggestion for an improvement to the directions for a particular route, please contact us and your feedback will be gratefully received.

Footpaths were passable at the time of writing but we make no guarantees about their subsequent condition. Cornwall Council are responsible for ensuring that Public Rights of Way are navigable. If you find a problem with the maintenance of footpaths (e.g. a fallen tree or overgrown path), see how to report this to the Countryside team working for Cornwall Council.
