No particular level of walking experience is assumed. I anticipate this book will be enjoyed not only by hardy trekkers who think nothing of 20 miles per day, but also more sedate ramblers who are content with barely a third as many and who have no aspirations towards the complete end-to-end walk. The day sections suggest roughly an average of 17 miles, but there are huge variations depending upon availability of public transport and accommodation, as I have tried to start and end each section with a place offering significant availability of both.

You bear left and left again, but soon bear right along a path with thick vegetation beside you; you cross a footbridge and ascend awhile before dropping through more woodland at Treluggan Cliff. Again you are directed left, inland, at Pendower Court, then turn right to follow a road down to the Pendower Beach House Hotel and cross a stream by a footbridge. You continue across an area of Pendower Beach then leave the beach by means of stone steps, at the top of which you turn right onto a road then right again; however, soon you are directed left, round the inland side of the Nare Hotel to join a road onto which you turn right.
