Trevarrian

Trevarrian is a hamlet south of Mawgan Porth, minutes away from the coast path which allows you a fantastic opportunity to view the North Cornwall coastline. As well as giving you breathtaking walks to the two closet beaches, it also allows you to carry on past Watergate Bay onto Porth, or in the opposite direction past Bedruthan Steps and onto Constantine Bay or further!  Or just walk to Beacon Cove – simply stunning.

The Travellers Rest Pub dates back to the 17th Century and has a cosy, friendly atmosphere and a fantastic range of the finest beers, ciders, spirits, wines and coffee  The menu changes on a regular basis and they are passionate about great quality, home cooked, locally sourced, seasonal fresh food. Its right on the doorstep!!

Nestled on the stunning North Cornwall coast between Newquay and Padstow, Arla’s, Trevarrian creamery prides itself on its award winning soft cheeses, from fabulously rich Cornish Brie and Camembert to their tangy Goat’s cheese.

Newquay Airport – 2 minutes by car, less than half a mile away. Car hire available.

Bedruthen Steps

Carnewas at Bedruthen Steps beach is a real adventure, although unsuitable for visitors with limited mobility.

The beach is accessed via steep steps cut in to the cliff face, with safety grab rails on the way down. Definitely not a bathing beach, but a dramatic feast of stacks and arches formed by the sea over the years, that beautiful clear sea and often undisturbed sand – never fails to captivate visitors. Watch the tide – it sweeps in very quickly here, so timing your visit for low tide is important.

Cafe on site.

Walk along the stunning Coast Path through Mawgan Porth approximately 3 miles of hilly terrain.

 

Mawgan Porth

Mawgan Porth Beach is an absolute favourite with families – a rolling expanse of golden sand as the tide goes out, revealing rock pools full of miniature sea life – pools large enough to swim in sometimes – rocks for climbing and a fun shallow stream leading in to the sea.

Ideal for children of all ages –  surfing, body boarding, buckets, spades and fishing nets – all day family fun! King Surf surf school is based here for surf lessons and coasteering.

The Catch Seafood Restaurant a stylish beach house restaurant located next to the beach.  Freshly cooked seafood, coastal inspired dishes from top chefs and stunning coastal views.

Watergate Bay

Watergate Bay – the tide goes out to reveal a huge expanse of golden sand – it is what it is – an amazing beach!

Great restaurants including The Beach Hut which has large sea-facing windows where you can relax with a food, coffee or a drink among the hustle of beach life.  A fabulous place to watch the sun go down.
