Wildlife & Walking

With the majority of Cornwall being surrounded by the sea, there are so many coastal walks along the cliff paths to discover whilst you’re here.
But the adventures don’t end there. Head further inland to venture across the mystical moors and magical woodlands.
There are lots of fantastic resources with suggested routes including iWalkCornwall and Visit Cornwall. Here are just a few of our favourites that are closest to Atlantic View Holidays accommodation.

Pentire Headland Walk

The Pentire headland walk is a spectacular 3.5 mile route straight from the doorstep of both Atlantic View Holidays properties. Set off and head out to Pentire Point, then go on to the Rumps where you can take in the breath-taking views of Stepper Point to the south and Tintagel Castle to the north on a clear day. The circular walk takes you back to the new Visitor Centre.
Tintagel Castle

Polzeath to St Enodoc Church

Another walk straight from the doorstep is Polzeath to St Enodoc Church. At just under 4 miles, the circular walk takes you along the coast path past a number of small beaches with plenty of rockpools to explore at low tide. You’ll go past shipwrecks as well, across Daymer Bay then on to St Enodoc Church – the burial place of Sir John Betjeman. The final stretch loops inland across the fields back to Polzeath.

Polzeath to Rock

Polzeath to Rock is another circular route from the door. It is just under 6 miles and follows the Greenaway path across to Trebetherick Point and Daymer Bay on to Rock. From here you could catch the ferry across to Padstow to explore further or continue on the return route. It takes you past St Enodoc Church and across the golf course and fields to Polzeath.

Boscastle and the Valency Valley walk

Boscastle and the Valency Valley walk explores the cliffs above Boscastle then heads inland across the wooded Valency Valley by the river. It is a four-mile walk that takes approx. two and a half hours to complete.

Tintagel Castle

Tintagel, King Arthur and the slate coast

Tintagel, King Arthur and the slate coast is a five-mile circular walk via the cove at Trebarwith Strand and back along the cliff path past quarries and Tintagel Castle. 

Trebah Garden

Surfing Safari Walk at Newquay

Surfing Safari Walk at Newquay takes in magnificent beaches, glorious headlands and the River Gannel estuary. It is a six-mile route.

The Japanese Garden

Rough Tor and Brown Willy

Rough Tor and Brown Willy is a circular route that climbs to the summit of Rough Tor via the Holy Well, following the ridge Showery Tor with spectacular views to the North Cornish coast.  It then goes on to the top of Brown Willy – the highest point in Cornwall with panoramic views across to the China Clay hills at St Austell (known locally as the Cornish Alps.) The route takes you past cairns, stone circles and other remnants of ancient Neolithic civilization and also the Charlotte Dymond memorial which is steeped in the folklore of Bodmin Moor.


Trelissick Gardens
