Trails from the Track
A ‘Trails from the Track’ pack features Polraen amongst its range of independent walks all accessible from the Looe Valley Line and an annual walking festival is held every September.
The Looe Valley
Enjoy the lovely environment of the Looe Valley on a range of walks accessible from the Looe Valley Line train, featured in the ‘Trails from the Track‘ pack (which we provide for free) published by the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership.
There is also a bird spotting guide so you can plan a great day out without the car direct from the doorstep at Polraen! And for some light refreshment on your travels, follow the Looe Valley Line Rail Ale Trail, featuring 9 distinctive pubs/inns serving real ale situated within walking distance of the Looe Valley Line stations.
In September, we have the annual Looe Valley Walking Festival with a varied programme of great walks and events featuring train rides on the Looe Valley Line.
For further details on Looe Valley and other branch line services, contact the Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership (01752) 233094 or click Looe Valley Walks.
The South West Coast Path
The Looe-Polperro walk on the South West Coast Path, and then beyond to Polruan and Fowey, is arguably one of the most beautiful stretches on the southern coastline. Arrive in Polperro in time for a pint at The Three Pilchards or Blue Peter before strolling around the quaint harbour.
For contrast, drive inland to Bodmin and Dartmoor. Bodmin is very close to Polraen and is easy to reach by car.
