Walk the Cornish Celtic Way
Monday 2nd September 2019 , 4:00 pm - Sunday 8th September 2019 , 4:00 pm
With Revd. Nigel Marns, author of ‘A Cornish Celtic Way’
Explore the Cornish Celtic Way with a series of guided walks visiting some of the highlights of the 125 mile route, returning each night to enjoy the peaceful comfort and home-cooked food of Epiphany House, Truro.
What to expect during this retreat
There will be five walking days, each visiting a different part of the Cornish Celtic Way. Revd Nigel Marns will lead the guided walks and our driver will take you to the start and pick you up at the end of each day’s walk. You can expect to cover around 6-8 miles per day over terrain which includes stunning and sometimes steep coastal walks, taking in churches, holy wells and other special places along the way. Evenings will be relaxed and informal, and include an optional short act of worship with reflections on Celtic saints.
