Nearest pub

The Masons Arms (1 ¾ miles)

Cosy and traditional, The Masons Arms is nestled in the centre of Camelford and dates back to the 18th Century. Divided into a restaurant and separate bar, a wide range of hearty pub food is offered to all.

Nearest beach

Tregardock Beach (5 ¾ miles)

The visually arresting Tregardock beach is found between Tintagel and Port Isaac. Often quiet due its fairly challenging access route, this beach is an adventure playground. With soaring cliffs and an expanse of sand unfolding at low tide, there is an abundance of rocky crevices, caves and even a waterfall to seize your attention - just keep an eye on the tide.

Rugged beauty

Tregardock beach is a real treat. This raw and breathtaking hidden gem is off the beaten track but well worth the 15min walk in from the blind ended lane to Trgardock farm, (limited lane-side parking). The final descent is steep and rocky and for the sure footed only. Once down on the sand the intrepid beach explorer is treated with great sandy expanses, a vast array of caves and rock pools, (some deep enough for the kids to swim in), and a spectacular waterfall at the Eastern end, (if it's not running don't complain as you are clearly having some pretty good dry weather!) Access 2-3 hrs either side of LOW water only. Trerubies cove, with a real smugglers flavour, lies to the West and usually involves a scramble. If exploring this far be vigilant about the incoming tide and aim to retreat nearer the exit point once the tide has turned to come in. Tregardock can also be accessed from the neighbouring village of Treligga or from the coastal path.

Nearest walk

Camelford to Watergate (2 miles)

A five mile walk starting from Camelford car park and taking in pretty riverside views and woodland. Take a look at the iwalkcornwall.co.uk website for further details about this lovely walk or others in the area.

Nearest town

Camelford (2 miles)

Camelford is an ancient Cornish market town through which the Camel river runs on its way to the coast at Padstow. The town itself has a good selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants, but it is perhaps Camelford’s surroundings that are the real draw here. Walkers are in heaven when they venture just outside Camelford to explore the moorland and climb two of Cornwall’s highest points, the tors of Brown Willy and Rough Tor; an extinct volcano. For the less energetic, a stroll along the river banks through Enfield Park is a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Also nearby

Peckish Fish & Chips (1 ¾ miles)

This is the place for the best takeaway fish and chips in the area. A range of burgers, pies and other takeaway foods also available.

Delicious!

Very high quality fish, just delicious and reasonable too.

Tintagel Castle (6 ¼ miles)

The remains of Tintagel Castle are at the heart of Arthurian legend. The location of the castle is spectacular – half a mile outside of Tintagel, across rugged clifftops, with no vehicular access. Tintagel Island, attached to the mainland by a sliver of land, enhances the wild and romantic atmosphere.

Take your time

Leave unsteady members of the family at the café while more active members tackle the many uneven, high, sometimes slippery steps (handrails are provided - use them!). Enjoy the excellent information centre which uses an innovative overhead projector to show the succeeding occupations of the site. There is a café and toilets, and a Land Rover to run you down and back if the walk down the valley isn't for you.
This is a uniquely precious historical site, the first to show how dark age Britain was actually still firmly connected to Mediterranean civilisation. Its legendary connection to king Arthur led to the construction of the Norman castle, but don't let the historical fiction mislead you - this is a real site where hundreds of people lived and traded for centuries at the edge of the Atlantic long before the Saxons took over Cornwall. The dramatic cliffs, the birds, the butterflies will all make this a day to remember.

Worth the climb!

A visit to Tintagel is a must when visiting this part of the world! The Castle has breathtaking views,but is a steep climb up to the top. The village has lots of friendly gift shops and good pubs to choose from.

Awesome. A must see and you can even take your dog up the cliffs and around the ruins.
Thank you English Heritage.

Nice but you must be fit

This is a lovely old ruin split between 2 cliffs. To access both involve very steep steps. You must be very fit but its a nice day out.

Tintagel and Trebarwith Strand

Although we stayed an hour away it was really worth the visit. My second visit in 10 years and so nice to see nothing had changed. Extremely steep slopes to climb - good steps and rails to hang on to but no access for wheelchairs or disabled! You must go on a good sunny day to take advantage of the views around. Always windy and blowy there.

Trebarwith Strand is just around the corner and is so worth the visit as the rock formation to get the beach is really worth seeing. Very natural but again no real access for wheelchairs or disabled really.

Trebarwith Strand Beach (5 ¾ miles)

Truly beautiful when the tide is out. Just 5 minutes from Tintagel and good for bass fishing too.

Trebarwith Strand

We walked along the cliff tops to discover this beautiful stretch of dog friendly beach. It is accessed by a rocky plateau but once on the beach there is a long stretch of golden sand with plenty of room for all to play. Lots of body boarding & surfing to be had with places to hire equipment. It's a lovely unspoilt area with a couple of cafes, tourist shops & a pub. Definitely worth a visit.

Fantastic beach

We were recommended Trebarwith Strand as one of the nicest beaches along this stretch of coastline. It was beautiful. We visited at lowtide, so lots of sandy beach available. The entry onto the beach is past a few cafes (we had an amazing cream tea in one of them = yum) and over a rocky area, before you reach the sand. The rocks themselves are fascinating. The beach is a good size, with rock pools and caves and plenty for all to explore. Some of the roads approaching Trebarwith are steep and narrow - as is often in this part of Cornwall.

An absolute classic!

Trebarwith Strand lies at the end of a narrow lane that descends through a wooded valley to this beachside hamlet. A vast beach at Spring low tides, its only downside is at high tide it is reduced to a modest rocky plateau. Armed with a tide table, however, there is no excuse for at least 6 hours a day on this deeply charismatic beach. Surrounded by an impressive cliff-scape this beach offers caves, huge sand flats, streams and rock pools big enough for the kids to safely swim in. Great surf as well including surf hire and lessons.When the tide does gently nudge the family up onto the rocky plateau, lovely in its own right, there is always the Port William pub overlooking the beach or a variety of cafes and a couple of quirky gift shops to keep everyone entertained. This is also a great place to access the coastal path heading North East to Penhallic point and Tintagel castle or South West to Tregardock beach and Port Isaac. It can get busy in the high season but never on the Polzeath scale and out of season it is usually very peaceful.

St Kew Pottery (7 ½ miles)

Feeling artistic? Try your hand at some pottery, still life or life drawing classes with potter Jon Whitten. Jon, whose work can be found in collections in Europe, Japan, New Zealand and the US, specialises in contemporary, wheel thrown pottery, a large collection of which is on display here, and is available to buy.

If the weather is not so good!

I should have said whether the weather is good or bad an interesting couple of hours learning the art of pottery with your host Jon. Can even take your works of art (or otherwise!) back home with you. Thank you, Jon.

St Breward on Bodmin Moor (3 ½ miles)

A good moorland walk starting from the church in St Breward, on the western side of the moor. The views include Britain’s first commercial wind farm at Delabole, then the lovely wooded valley of the Camel estuary.

St Breward circular walk and The Old Inn

Wonderful walk of just under 3 miles. Passes over moorland, through woodland and alongside a stream. Lovely far reaching views. We ended up at The Old Inn for a well earned pint! Good dog friendly pub that serves food.
