Lamorna Cove in October is peaceful and quiet with lovely views and a gorgeous stream bubbling over the rocks into the sea. The valley down to it is beautiful and full of trees creating dappled shade. There is a walking trail based on the artists...More

We toured this lovely cove with our group. It was a lovely stroll to the beach and we made quite a few great photos here.

We walked from Mousehole across the fields returning by the coast path and the walk itself was great with beautiful views although a bit muddy and uneven in places. However Lamorna Cove itself isn't the most attractive place in Cornwall and I wouldn't have gone...More

Lamorna Cove, whilst pleasant enough, does not compare favourably to others on this peninsula. Many years ago we stayed for a week in Lamorna in accomodation at the top of the road leading down to the cove & the walk down to it is simply...More

This charming little hidden harbour is well worth a visit either from the coastal path or down the winding single track road down the pretty wooded Lamorna valley.

There's a cafe, a kayak/board shop, small souvenir shop and plenty of parking. On the day we visited, it wasn't very busy and I think they could make more of the place, maybe a sea view restaurant and live music or something.

A favourite walking area along the Cornish paths; the broken sea wall is a real shame, spoiling the view and indicating a lack of care

Our group of four walked to Lamorna along the Coastal Walk from Mousehole. There had been afternon showers every day for almost a week, so the trail was muddy and not easy going (maybe that's normal). So as we approached the Cove, we were ready...More

It's a pretty little cove. Very small beach area. Did not ear or drink here but there is a cafe. Not somewhere you would stay for the day. Pay for parking as everywhere in Cornwall.

No, sorry there are no other forms of ferrying by road to the cove itself. The bus stops at The Wink. I spoke as someone who had lived in Lamorna, I was shocked to see how it had deteriorated, sadly through the total... More
