Testimonials

“This is the second property I have sold with Lillicrap Chilcott. In my mind, there would not be any other agent I would consider when navigating through such an involved and stressful process. From the outset, I was reassured by Dominic Skerry and his team that the sale of my property could be organised efficiently and with their second-to-none expertise in marketing. No detail was omitted and their excellent marketing strategy careful and meticulously explained. From the moment the property details went 'live', I was informed regularly on viewings about to take place and the follow-up telephone call shortly after the viewing to explain how the appointment went, with subsequent advice about the reaction of the people who had just viewed. I was regularly updated by Dominic Skerry and his team about progress, once an offer had been made in the relatively short time of 3 weeks, since the property was placed on the market. Subsequent liaison between myself, respective solicitors and other associated agencies by Dominic and his team was invaluable in reaching a satisfactory outcome. Dominic and his team were always accessible during and out of office hours. This was a major factor in moving the process forward as smoothly and quickly as possible. Dominic and his team must be congratulated on their professionalism, efficiency, courtesy and kindness. In my mind, I would wholeheartedly recommend this firm. This is an estate agent with a difference and a cut above all others that I have used in the past. Thank you, Dominic and the team. Using Lillicrap Chilcott is a no-brainer in my mind.”

Best coastal walks in Cornwall
Aug 2020
 

With more than 300 miles of stunning coastal scenery, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to walking in Cornwall. From gentle strolls around picturesque fishing villages to steep stretches of dramatic clifftop paths that will challenge even the hardiest of hikers, the South West Coast Path has plenty to offer outdoor enthusiasts of all fitness levels. Here are some of our favourite day hikes.

                        

Lizard Peninsula

The southernmost tip of the British mainland offers some of Cornwall’s most dramatic coastline and if you complete the full 7-mile walk in spring or summer, you’ll see plenty of beautiful wildflowers and possibly even a basking shark or two. Starting at Kynance Cove, a sandy white National Trust beach with amazing serpentine rock formations that frequently appears on Britain’s best beach lists, the coast path leads you around the headland to Lizard Point and the iconic Lizard Lighthouse. Frequently battered by the elements, tackling the peninsula on wet and windy days is not for the faint-hearted.

Fowey to Polperro

Starting and ending in two of the most appealing residential parts of Cornwall, the steep coastline between Fowey and Polperro inspired writer Daphne du Maurier, who based many of her stories in Cornwall. The complete hike is nearly 7 miles each way and involves taking the foot ferry from Fowey to Polruan, but you can also park at Lantivet Bay and enjoy a shorter version (3 miles each way) that ends in the beautiful fishing village of Polperro. Don’t forget your four-legged friend – Polperro is one of the most dog-friendly places in Cornwall.

St Agnes to Perranporth

Full of relics from Cornwall’s mining industry heritage, the 3.5-mile walk between St Agnes and Perranporth is relatively level and offers spectacular clifftop scenery and plenty of historical interest. The expansive beach at Perranporth is home to The Watering Hole – the UK’s only bar on the beach and one of the best places in Cornwall to watch the sun setting over the shimmering Atlantic Ocean.

Porthcurno to Land’s End

Home to one of Cornwall’s most spectacular beaches as well as the world-famous Minack Theatre, Porthcurno is well worth a day trip by itself. But if you’re in the mood to explore some of the Cornish coast path, the 5-mile trek to Land’s End offers scenic rocky bays, beautiful blue coves, and a chance to visit the famous signpost at Britain’s most south-westerly point.

Tintagel to Boscastle

Famously associated with King Arthur, Tintagel Castle is a legendary historical site owned by English Heritage with some spectacular views across the ruins and out to sea. A few miles north along the coast path, the charming harbour village of Boscastle offers a less touristy but no less fascinating area to explore. Once a favourite haunt of author Thomas Hardy, the port is the setting for his novel, A Pair of Blue Eyes. A relatively easy 5-mile hike, the walk takes you through an Iron Age settlement and offers many bird watching opportunities.

Hoping to make one of these trails your regular Sunday afternoon stroll? Lillicrap Chilcott can help you find your perfect countryside or waterfront home. View our Cornwall property directory or contact one of our friendly staff members for more information.
