In just 40 minutes, you can walk from Foxglove Field to one of the best views in Cornwall (or the whole of the UK if you ask us). Heading down into Marazion and and then out on the causeway to St. Michael’s Mount is well worth the 2-mile trip.

If you’re fancying a longer coastal walk, the trail through the village of Goldsithney and down to the beautiful Prussia Cove is well worth the trip. The loop back to Foxglove Field will take you past the secret Piskies Cove and along Perranuthnoe beach with its cafes and galleries.
