Tregardock Beach is burrowed between Tintagel and Port Isaac. Fairly isolated, it is only accessible via a walk along a coastal path and involves a bit of a scramble to get onto the beach itself. More suited to those looking for somewhere off the beaten track, it is often overlooked in favour of its more accessible neighbours. Although there is plenty of sandy beach at low tide, this all but disappears at high tide. With sweeping views and gorgeous scenery, Tregardock Beach is a wonderful place to sit and spend a while.
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.
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.
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.
This 15th Century village pub was once home to the masons and craftsmen who constructed the nearby church of St James the Great. Today, you will find a welcoming bar and restaurant, with blazing fire in the winter, and a large beer garden for those balmy Cornish summer evenings. Look out for the resident ghost.
St Kew Inn
Excellent food and friendly service to our party of six. Would recommend fish meal of the day.
excellent food very friendly staff
Very good food
Lovely food. Service was a little slow at lunchtime but they were aware of this, apologised and tried to resolve.
So good we visited twice
Superb food, varied menu, good service. We were a group with 4 vegans and 2 carnivores and we all thought this Inn was top notch.
A must visit
Fantastic pub, great menu for veggies, beautiful garden and loads of space
The St Kew Inn does excellent food. It is not cheap but very good value for money. My wife said that the hake she had one evening was the best fish she had tasted for many years - cooked to perfection. You need to book early to get a table in the restaurant, but can also take pot luck in the bar where the tables are not reserved. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Best pub in the arae
Excellent pub food. Best in the area. Good real ale and great pub food consistent performance and very popular so need to book in season.
idyllic country pub
A warm welcome and helpful staff. The food was great - the haddock kedgeree was worth the trip alone.
Great country pub
Great atmosphere and food. Nice seating inside and outdoor summer barbeque.
Beautiful and Atmospheric
Picturesque 15th Century village pub serving beer from wooden barrels and excellent homecooked food prepared to order by hosts Paul Ripley and Sarah Allen. One of the most beautiful and atmospheric pubs in Cornwall.
- Mr and Mrs Whitten
A former 18th century corm mill now transformed into a traditional coaching inn. You can enjoy warming real fires in winter and outdoor seating in warmer summer months.
Excellent Sunday lunch, need to book.
Delicious Sunday lunch
Our second visit to this wonderful rustic pub. A warm welcome, great service and lovely food - only advice - make sure you’re hungry ... the Sunday roast is enormous but so tasty!
Great old Pub
Great old pub fantastic food and good choice of Ales staff very friendly.
This delightful converted traditional mill house offers the best of both worlds: an excellent pint of Cornish Ale in a worn leather armchair, maybe a live band, maybe a fire in the hearth...then next door a crisp gastro-pub style fine dining experience all within a stones throw from the fabulous Trebarwith strand.
In a stunning setting, this pub offers wonderful views over Trebarwith Strand, excellent food and fine Cornish ales. A popular place for walkers, there is also a surf school nearby.
Mussels to die for
Superb meal here. Service was a little slow but the food was worth waiting for.
Great food, warm welcome good choice of Ales
A real gem.
We stumbled across the Port William at Trebarwith Strand one evening on our way back from Port Issac. When we arrived the sun was setting, the tide was high and the waves roaring! The pub sits on part of the cliff which looks over the bay of Trebarwith, offering stunning views of this part of the coastline. We had a drink whilst sat on one of the picnic benches outside and watched the sunset. Bliss! We then returned to the Port William for lunch later in our holiday and the food was very tasty 'pub grub'. The staff were very welcoming and the pub is child and dog friendly and our two sons enjoyed looking at the huge fish tank that resides in the main bar!
An exceptional place to watch the sun set over Trebarwith Strand either with a pint of fine Cornish ale, glass of wine or a robust pub feast. Great food and a recently added contemporary extension to the dining area with outstanding sea views.
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.
Made up of half a mile of soft, golden sand backed by rock and cliff, Trebarwith Strand is a National Trust-owned beach near Tintagel. Easily accessible, at low tide a huge expanse of sand is revealed whilst at high tide the sea covers nearly all the beach. Lifeguarded in summer, Trebarwith Strand is a popular spot amongst people of all ages.
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.
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.
Found the beach by accident whilst staying at Port Isaac and visiting Tintagel.
Beautiful sandy beach,reached by clambering over rocks . Really nice Cafe serving burgers and chips etc. Wish we had time to return another day!
The Melia Family
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.
