Around the headland from Constantine Bay, in the hamlet of Treyarnon (sandy beach with low-tide rock pool for swimming, café, beach shop with surfboard hire), a practical and comfortable end-of-terrace cottage in a modern development of holiday apartments and cottages called Ocean Blue, just 50 yards from the splendid beach. To the side, a small terrace (table/chairs) with rural views.
Cornwall’s north coast: from the river Camel north to Bude and on to Morwenstow and the highest cliffs in the West Country, it is a mixture of great cliffs and beaches. Walking (coast path) and bird-friendly cliffs (usually no road near): peregrines possible. Great sand/surf beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith, Widemouth Bay, Bude and Sandy Mouth; sandy coves at Port Gaverne, Bossiney, Crackington Haven, Duckpool, and others less accessible; Rock, also sandy, is the place for watersports, including sailing on the Camel estuary; very fine golf course (St Enodoc); mini-fjords at Port Quin and Boscastle. Port Isaac is very pretty round its cliff-enclosed harbour.
The well-worth-riding Camel Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows the river Camel from Bodmin Moor to Padstow. Pencarrow is a beautiful house with wonderful garden. Tintagel has a ruined castle (King Arthur’s?) on a wild headland. St Juliot church was restored by Thomas Hardy and ‘a pair of blue eyes’ nearly fell down a Crackington cliff. Bodmin Moor, its highest hills quite mountainous, is only a little way inland and Blisland, on its northern edge, is one of Cornwall’s prettiest villages.
Constantine Bay: village (shop, hotel restaurant) and beach on Trevose Head, a chain of at least seven superb sand/surf beaches. Good golf course and country club (tennis, swimming) behind the dunes. St Merryn (pubs, restaurants), 1 mile; Padstow and sailing on the Camel estuary, 4.
