Gunwalloe Church Cove Beach, TR12 7QE
(NOT Gunwalloe Beach by the Halzephron Inn)
Situated on the Lizard Peninsular, three miles south of Helston and three miles from Porthleven.
From Helston take the A3083 south towards Lizard. After the bridge Gunwalloe is signposted on the right (before the roundabout). Continue for 3.3 miles along this road and park in the National Trust car park.
- During the walk we will get to stop and nibble on raw wild foods. Please always double check with me that you have selected the correct plant before eating our finds. We will also handle some inedible and poisonous species.
- Some plants are not suitable for pregnant women so please let me know beforehand or give me a discreet nod if that is the case.
What to Wear
Please wear sturdy footwear and dress for the weather. There is a lot of standing around to look and talk about the various plants so it can get very cold at times. I would recommend layers. We are often in exposed areas and the wind can feel freezing!
