Route: The Smugglers Way Name: Nigel Walked on: 24th August 2018

UK FlagJust a quick note to say 'thank-you' again for the Smugglers' Way notes.

My son and I stayed at the Jamaica Inn for three nights from last Thursday to Sunday, and we walked the route in two days, Friday and Saturday.  We booked a taxi (Dans Cabs from Launceston) from the Inn to Looe on Friday morning and walked back to the Inn, and then on Saturday we walked to Boscastle and had a taxi back to the Inn. Your notes were perfect and, coupled with the three OS maps and a compass, we had no problems whatsoever.  On Saturday the weather over Brown WIlly and Rough Tor was ideal; I guess we could see for 30 miles or more.

So, thanks again.  The whole weekend worked like a dream!

Kindest regards,

United Kingdom flagApologies for the delay in getting back to you and thank you for all the work you put into my holiday. The walking notes for the Smugglers' Way and the instructions for finding the accommodation were spot on. There were bits of water-logged ground on the Smugglers' Way, but no more than what is to be expected of moorland after rain - certainly nothing I haven't coped with before.
