iWalk Cornwall guided walks app
Our walks are available via a guided walk mobile app for Apple iPhones and iPads and for Android phones and tablets. The iWalk app is effectively a "SatNav" for walking, providing detailed directions and information about the local area, based on your current location (but doesn't talk at you, allowing you to enjoy your walk in peace).
We charge a small amount for each walk (£1.16 + charges from Google/Apple + VAT which results in a retail price of £1.99) towards the costs of preparing and maintaining the information.
The iWalk app includes a free walk (Lanhydrock Gardens) and a simulation mode so you can try out the functionality for yourself before purchasing any walks.
What does the iWalk app do?
The walk purchased through the app contains all the information on the walk page of our website, including a summary, highlights, directions and points of interest and how to get the start of the walk.
It also contains a map of the walk route and surrounding area, showing where you are on it and which way you are facing. The map also shows the location of points of interest along the walk.
Using the GPS receiver on your phone/tablet, the app:
- Gives you directions with a beep/vibrate notification when there’s a new direction for you to follow.
- Gives you information about points of interest along the walk.
- Warns you if you wander off the walk route.
- Tells you how far you’ve walked and how far you have left to go.
Once a walk is downloaded onto your phone/tablet, the app doesn’t need an internet connection whilst you do the walk. The app also integrates with your phone's built-in satnav software for driving to help you get to the start of the walk.
The app also allows you to feed back footpath issues so we can work with the Local Authority countryside team to get these fixed.
What do other people think of our walks app?
Always excellent. We use IWC each time we visit Cornwall. Accurate, informative and easy to use. The team who produce the app really know their stuff and have a range of walks from easy to hard. You simply choose one that suits your ability and fitness. Throughly recommended.
Great App. Very cold day so I was glad of the alert at each section of the guild, I didn't have to keep checking my phone and could leave it warm in my pocket Clear directions with the added bonus of historical markers at points of interest. I will be using this app where I can :)
Brilliant app. Just completed my 3rd walk today. Love all the extra information. Makes it so educational. I've not got lost yet ;-)
Fantastic app. My tip, get some gloves that you can still use the phone with or a dabber for those winter walks!
Perfect! Used it for the first time today and it worked flawlessly, thank you.
Wow! What a great app, so easy and so accurate. Great clear directions, excellent map function and notes to area of walk really enhanced the enjoyment. Great work people, coming back to do another one just to use it again!
loving this app @iwalkc is brilliant!
The app is just brilliant, so accurate and well worded to avoid any misunderstanding. Loved the map functionality mixed with the directions and the historical notes really did add a lot to the walk.
Love love love the app. It's fab!!
Excellent app, searched for many apps and this is the best one I've come across. Tells you all the walks you need to know and where to start/the distance/time it takes/condition of foot paths the app is brilliant. If you choose to pay for the individual walks which are fairly cheap you get step by step instructions which is linked in with your gps and automatically notifies you off instructions before you reach the next step. Tells you how long you've been going time left, distance covered/remaining. The app is amazing worth paying for the walks also. Couldn't recommend this enough.
Did a great walk using @iwalkc definitely recommend this app.
Fantastic - enhanced the holiday - good value for money
We are having the most wonderful time with these walks and this app. We did the Bedruthen Steps one 2 days ago, Port Quin to Port Isaac yesterday, and today we're off to do Trebarwith to Tintagel. Thanks so much. They're fabulous.
Can't recommend these walks enough, excellent directions you can't go wrong!
I absolutely adore your app. I have probably done around a dozen of the walks now and have loved all of them. I've lived in Cornwall almost all my life and by using the app have discovered so many beautiful places . You have clearly put in such a massive amount of work and your attention to detail is spot on. Thank you.
Keeps you on track and loads of info. Really awesome app for walking around Cornwall. GPS tracking keeps you on the right course and as each point is reached you are informed of guides to walk and local descriptions. Can't fault it!
Takes the pain out of map reading. A wonderful, easy to use app that helps you discover Cornwall. A variety of walks to suit all levels of experience, and each walk highlights the level. Easy to follow directions, map and a warning if you take a wrong path. Ideal for us with no sense of direction! :-) the app also highlights points of interest along your walk with informative and knowledgeable write ups. Highly recommended.
In my view your website is the definitive authority on walks in Cornwall, the Cornish Wainwright!
I'm loving the app as it does give you confidence to "go it alone" so to speak. Put it another way i wouldn't before have tried anything like this on my own - so brilliant!!
Brilliant ★★★★★. Having done 2 walks using the app we are totally impressed. The variety and classification of walks by area and difficulty is very impressive. Each walk is clearly described - not just the path but notes on features and locations. The app shows precisely where you are positioned in relation to the path so any deviation off route is evident. We chose a walk through possibly the most overgrown and remote path in the county where it was impossible to tell footpath from sheep track but with the app every deviation was identified and corrected. We could not recommend more highly. David Paula and Dixie
I think that you have done an excellent job and have inspired my husband and I to visit Cornwall on a regular basis in order to complete all your walks.
We recently used this app to do a few walks in Cornwall It was easy to use and excellent value for money The directions were easy to follow and the " pause gps " button was very useful Easy to refer to map All in all a fantastic app which I shall use again when we visit Cornwall. Thank you.
We would like to express our thanks to you for creating such a brilliant app and website.
We have completed many of your walks and are always surprised with the clarity and ease of instructions. The added historical and geographical references make them so interesting and informative.
Superb app and easy to use. Very pleased to find this app. The descriptions are clear and accurate, easy to follow on route and definitely value for money. It's saved lots of trawling the internet and paper maps! We have explored beautiful places on our doorstep which we never knew existed! Thank you!
Excellent app ★★★★★. We used this app for the first time this holiday. We wish we had found it years ago. Excellent information, direction updates, amazing walks - thank you
Did our first walk yesterday and despite torrential rain and getting off track due to my poor navigation skills (not looking at the phone in the rain) we thoroughly enjoyed exploring places we would never have done without your app. To say we're impressed is an understatement so thanks very much for all the effort and skill you have put in to enable others to share your passion for walking in Cornwall.
Five stars, well deserved ★★★★★. Turn-by-turn notifications give us the confidence to go on walks knowing we are both headed in the right direction and not somewhere we shouldn't be! This app will inform our holidays for years to come.
Such a brilliant Idea. What a wonderful way to explore Cornwall. Sometimes when your faced with sorting out a walk it can mean maps, gps, reference book and time wasted trying to organise it. This app does it all for you so you can be left just to enjoy the walk.
We have used this app on eight walks while on holiday in West Cornwall and can thoroughly recommend it. Having used maps and walk books in the past with reasonable success, we can honestly say that this app is practically foolproof. The snippets of information given at various points in the walk are also welcome and well judged.
Fabulous ★★★★★. Excellent, accurate app! Perfect for holiday makers.
Excellent app. Never get lost again Lots of interesting info on the walks as well
What a brilliant, brilliant app. Born and bred in Cornwall, and still have so many beautiful places still unseen. This app is perfect for visiting those amazing places. Thank you for the massive time and effort involved to benefit others.
Excellent app, impossible to get lost! Just make sure your battery is fully charged before you start!
Great app ★★★★★. Used this app for the past week- normally an ifootpath user but limited walks in Cornwall. I was blown away by the sheer number of choices. Highlights were the Truro walk, bodmin Moor-St Breward, Feock to Devoran and Padstow. My in-laws are locals and are wedded to aa walks and I have even converted them. Such interesting facts, GPS was very accurate and not a single error in instructions- saved me a few times taking the wrong path. Well done to all and be good to see it spread north!
Easy to use. Uncluttered design, like the look and feel of it. This was the first time I used it and I took a shortcut as it was tipping down and the app got me back on track.
Brilliant App. This really is a fantastic app. The way it works with the GPS is superb. Had a really enjoyable walk today. Just make sure your phone is fully charged before you start.
I have just spent two weeks walking around Cornwall with the assistance of your App and I must say how much it increased my walking pleasure. Since my return, I have been telling all my friends how great it is.
This app is excellent! Easy to use, clear instructions and you can tell a lot of time and effort has gone into planning and researching the walks. We've been to places we would never have known existed without this app. Highly recommended, would give you 6 stars if I could ;)
Well I downloaded the app and we decided to do our first walk on the bedruthan steps. Having read how good these iwalks were, you are still a little apprehensive but honestly, it's easy, informative, and the noise that it makes at every stage is fantastic. I am guessing all the tours are the same standard but this was brilliant. As for the walk, a lot of up and down hill, fields and rocks, but the scenery is awesome. Enjoy
Love using this App. I have done 2 walks so far using it. Holywell Bay to Crantock and Carn Naun to St Ives. Enjoyed both walks with their stunning views and secret coves. App prevented me from getting lost both times!
Wonderful. Just wanted to drop you a quick note and say how much we love your app. We used it today for the Mousehole - Lamorna Cove walk. It was so handy to have the notifications come through telling us where to go, we would have taken a few wrong turns otherwise no doubt! It was also really nice to have insights into the the history of area. Congratulations on a fantastic app and website, you have done a wonderful job.
Brilliant I cannot praise this app enough, absolutely brilliant and it makes it impossible to get lost, unless you run out of phone battery! I really wish there was one for devon too.
We have used this app a few times now and wouldn't hesitate to use it again . The walks we have completed were truly amazing with spectacular scenery. Very clear route instructions ( we didn't get lost once ) we took the odd screen shot of directions just in case we lost signal . But we didn't need to refer to them !! We are busy planning our next adventure with iwalk Cornwall . Superb stuff , keep the walks coming. many thanks
Well crafted GPS guided walks across beautiful Cornwall with thoughtful step by step commentary. I've never get lost on a iWalk :) Thoroughly recommend!
Brilliant app. Made our Cornish holiday even better.
Downloaded your app just before a week-end trip to Cornwall from Bristol. We did the Lanhydrock Gardens walk on Friday afternoon, Fowey to Polruan walk on Saturday and Talland Bay to Looe on Sunday. App worked really, really well and we didnt get lost once. It was brilliant. Many thanks for the opportunity and will definitely use it again when we are in Cornwall.
Brilliant. This app has never let me down. The selection of walks is excellent and various options, features including battery preservation and choice of map and directions make it practical. We live in Cornwall but have been delighted to meet other impressed users and holiday makers en routes. They are easy to contact with suggestions too! Highly recommended. My blind husband loved the audible tones too 'what is it telling you now' - great.
I downloaded iwalk at the start of the week. I have been very impressed with its simplicity, yet detailed information. The app has a wide variety of walks to suit all fitnesses and it covers a variety of different geographical styles of walking - eg pub walks coast walks circular walks etc etc I would recommend this app!
Fantastic - enhanced the holiday - good value for money.
I just wanted to say how much I enjoy using your walks, they're easy to follow and have lots of interesting things pointed out along the way.
Great App ... Download it NOW! ★★★★★ This app is fantastic and does exactly what it is advertised to do. The walk we took around Lanhydrock was great and the additional information provided by the app was clear and informative. The GPS location triggered prompts saved battery life and the preloaded map saved frustration waiting for maps to load in poor reception conditions. We are looking forward to taking more walks with this app. Congratulations to the developers on a job well done.
Excellent app. Very informative and accurate. Thanks for making our holiday easy
Excellent App! ★★★★★ Firstly let me congratulate you on your fantastic App. We have used it several times now and really enjoyed the selection of walks and the quality of information provided.
Fantastic app! ★★★★★ Such a good app and a great selection of walks. We have just done 3 of them on our recent trip to north cornwall. A good mix of different distances so we could do them with the kids. Very informative and we never got lost!
A great addition to a walk ★★★★★ This was a great find! So many walks to choose from, and the app worked perfectly throughout the walk we chose. Our teenager particularly enjoyed using it and happily completed the whole walk with iPhone in hand. The directions arrived perfectly at the end of each section we completed and were very accurate. The log of how far you've walked and the estimated time left were very useful. I wish there were similar walks for elsewhere in the UK!
A really useful app ★★★★★ We tried the circular walk from Cape Cornwall to Levant and the app worked treat, really helpful directions which in places would have been difficult to identify on a map. By the way, the walk was marvellous. Highly recommended.
Great app ★★★★★. Works really well. Directions move forward on screen in alignment to your position on the ground which makes it easy to follow the next step on the route. Very impressed.
★★★★★ Great. Very clear, easy to use and reliable. Really good app
Faultless app ★★★★★. Just wish I had found this app earlier on my walking holiday. Easy and informative.
Great step by step guide with surprising accuracy. The historic info really adds to the experience.
This is the best app I have loaded into my phone!!! I loved using it, I'm a very beginner hiker and this was the perfect tool for me to use with my sisters on our trip to Cornwall. Thanks for all the hard work, I appreciate it!!
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Exceptionally easy to use, step by step guidance that gives you next direction exactly when you need it. This is a nice walk stunning countryside and coastal paths.
Used your app for the first time last weekend, absolutely brilliant app.....Given us much more confidence for those longer walks and really like the information on route. We'll definitely use again.
just thought id say that your app is superb - made a joy of walking in an unfamiliar area
Excellent Walk ★★★★★. A very good app and an excellent walk the directions were very clear and the scenery spectacular.
Worth the cost ★★★★★. An excellent app that not only gives you a walk but provides information about where you are and follows your steps. A reminder bleep sounds at each change to ensure you stay on track. The walks were perfect too! Please can we have more for the rest of the UK?!
Great idea, lovely walk. This is a well designed app with accurate waypoints, simple directions and some interesting information about the industrial heritage of the area. Good idea to link it to Google maps too to provide route directions to the start point from any location.
Brilliant Walking App Really enjoyed this walk and information that was given along the way. Was very impressed with the accuracy of the descriptions and notifications of the next point. I would recommend IWalk Cornwall to anyone, great value per walk.
Cheaper than 2 bags of crisps And far more healthy. Waypoints are interesting and accurate with great directions at the right time.. We really liked it and its a bonus that it works offline so battery saving is great as most of this walk was out of range for data. Well worth it and highly recommended. Will be trying more.
Accurate and interesting. I bought this on a whim when in Cornwall. Was expecting to be disappointed but instead have been really impressed. The navigation using the app is excellent, with a loud beep when you get within 10 metres of your next way point - resulting in a 'who can guess the beep point' game as we followed the traiI. The Directions tab has a load of background info for the area we were walking through and the map tab lets you see where you are, well worth the £ I paid for it.
Downloaded the #iwalkcornwall from @iwalkc and went on a circular walk from #stcolumb to #stmawgan the best app I've downloaded by far
Great app and a lovely walk. Seriously, it's well worth a try. It's a great afternoon of entertainment for me.
@iwalkc we did a fab walk using the App at Gunwalloe on Sunday. Thanks will definitely do some more. Loved the bits of info and history
Golitha Falls Walk. This app is fantastic. Instructions are clear (didn't get lost once!), map is brilliantly thought out, with useful, knowledgeable & interesting comments on local heritage/landmarks etc along the way & can be used even if no internet signal.
Brilliant. We really enjoyed this walk and at first found it like a treasure hunt. The maps and info are clear and the alerts were very useful. Will definitely get more of these. Recommended!!
Fantastic app, lovely walk and learnt loads even though i'm local!
Best kept secret! Glad I came across this map. It takes you on a long relaxing walk with some stunning views and includes a stone bridge and a really cool rope suspension bridge! We did not meet a soul and it felt like we had the whole valley all to ourselves. A must do in Cornwall! The walk will suit most abilities, although you should be capable of climbing over stiles.
This is a cracking walk, well described and the app works really well. We found it very informative, it alerts you every time you need to change direction, and tells you in good time if you stray from the route - much better than carrying a book or map. It's well worth taking the detour to visit Restormel Castle, particularly if it's a nice day as it's an excellent picnic spot and the views are stunning. I'll definitely be buying more of these walks, and I really hope they expand into other areas soon.
Brilliant! Me and my husband used this iwalk app for the first time today - the directions were very clear and having the routemap is very helpful. Will definitely recommend and use more. Thanks!
A brilliant app and an enjoyable journey. The scenery was stunning and the guidance provided was exceptional. A thoroughly worthwhile purchase for anyone looking to explore the town of bude and it's landscape.
Perfect walking guide. Easy to use walking 'SatNav' and informative guide packed full of useful local info and history. App snoozed while we were strolling along then automatically woke up at each way-marker with clear directions for the next leg, saving battery! Map was easy to read and it all worked offline. Looking forward to exploring more of Cornwall with other apps in the series.
Very useful Invaluable tool. Simple to use. Once downloaded you only use GPS, no phone signal needed. The pointer on the map to show where you were was extremely accurate, even knowing which way you were facing!! Very clearly showed you where you needed to go and useful additional information.
Great walk well presented. A great app and a really good walk with a few extras to add further interest. The valley is a real hidden gem in Cornwall that you wouldn't find easily without the app. This walk is a must if you like industrial history.
Excellent app, and a really informative guide. The app tracks your progress and alerts you when a change of direction is needed so you can be sure you're always going to be on the right track. I totally recommend this app, and this particular walk along the stunning cornish coast.
I am notorious for having little sense of direction and getting lost. This app was spot on, I didn't go wrong once and I liked all the information about what was around me.
Fantastic ★★★★★ We've bought 2 of the walks so far and they are brilliant... I love that the walks go in a circle and even without 4G the app knows exactly where we are.
Use this app all the time. Really useful and informative
Great app brilliant additional info. The app was good looked at direction summary and used map to stay on track. I went off track and it warned me straight away. Great buy the maps are so cheap!
Brilliant. Walked Bodmin moor no problems at all. Felt really safe using this app.
Most impressed with @iwalkc app today. Well worth a look
Excellent app! We only had time for 2 walks with the App but it was extremely useful, and accurate. Without this we would have got lost or given up. The additional background info (eg Minions & the Cheesewring) are very helpful. The cost of individual walks is very acceptable. Shame it's only available for Cornwall.
Just wanted to say how impressed were after the walk. Your information was spot on the app works great, well done.
I wanted to congratulate your team on creating such a great app. I loved how it messaged me at ever waypoint. And when we went off path because of path closure. Well done.
