Walkers encouraged to go barefoot at Cornwall property

Trekking and walking in Cornwall has long been a favourite pastime for thousands of holidaymakers who flock to the county every year to explore the stunning surrounding countryside, but there is a new twist to one trail on a National Trust property that even Britain’s most experienced walkers wouldn’t have come across.

A path designed specifically for people to walk barefoot on has been unveiled at Godolphin House, a Cornish landmark dating back to the 15th and 16th century.

Made from textures including gravel, fir cones and slate, the new attraction is the first of its kind for the charity. Ian Marsh, spokesperson for the trust, said: “I hope this exciting new initiative will really encourage people to get outdoors and try something new.”

Yet another addition to Cornwall’s great outdoors, it could represent a great day out for any of those enjoying a British vacation in one of the luxury cottages in Cornwall.
