Holywell Bay and Crantock– fabulous dunes and sweeping sandy beaches just south of Newquay. Beach car parks at both.

Park Head, between Mawgan Porth and Porthcothnan- majestic headland with cliff walks to tiny Porth Mear cove and with views across Bedruthan Steps

Pentire Headland, Polzeath – one of the finest coastal walks around. Park at Pentireglaze and enjoy fabulous coast path walking past the Rumps, past stunning views of the Camel estuary and on to Polzeath where, no doubt, there will be pubs and cafes open for a warming drink. Alternatively take a more sheltered walk at Lundy Bay where there is a NT Car park at roadside.

Tintagel to Trebarwith coast path – enjoy great views of Tintagel Castle and views of ancient cliff quarries and the lovely Trebarwith Strand beach.

Boscastle – many options here from a short stroll in the Elizabethan harbour (The NT shop & cafe is open 27th-31st), more exhilerating cliff walks, or go exploring in the oak woodlands of the Valency Valley.

Crackington Haven – great beach and cliff walks. Cafe and pub in the Haven

North of Bude – Three top beach locations to choose here, all with a beach car park. Try Northcott Mouth near Bude, or heading a little further north there are the stunning beaches at Sandymouth and Duckpool. More sheltered inland loops are possible around our Stowe Barton farm estate from here.

Morwenstow – last but certainly not least, visit Morwenstow for cliff and wooded valley walks and the history of the famous Reverend Hawker, with the bonus of a great pub at the end! – The Bush Inn.

Have fun exploring!
