At the Emerald you only have to step out of the front door to find yourself amongst rolling fields and lush countryside criss-crossed with public footpaths and just a short drive away are some of Cornwall’s most scenic walks.

For woodland ambles head to Trelissick Garden where the steep valley is covered by a canopy of trees set to a stunning water backdrop or pass through Truro to Idless with its beautiful mixed woodland. For coastal views choose a stretch of the South West Coast Path which weaves its way around Cornwall for some 300 miles.
