The National Trust owns several miles of coast and common to the west  - all within easy reach of our hotels location in newquay. The South West coast path runs along the cliffs and access is provided from convenient car parks.


For it's sheer diversity of landscape this group of National Trust properties is hard to beat. Exposed rocky headlands, sandy surfing beaches, enormous dunes, common land, stream-side habitats, a tidal estuary, mudflats and a patch of woodland are all found in one relatively small part of North Cornwall and they are all to be found when you walk from Newquay to Holywell Bay.


If you walk in the opposite direction, east towards Padstow, you will be walking along the windswept cliffs and dramatic coastline taking in Lusty Glaze, Porth, Whipsiderry and then on to Watergate Bay and Mawgan Porth. Alternatively you could park here and then walk on to Bedruthan Steps. There is an awesome nobility about the view across the famous wave-swept stacks. Man seems to have had little influence on this scene and along two miles of this exciting coastline are six Bronze Age Barrows, two Iron Age Cliff Castles and a nineteenth century Iron Mine.
