A walk on the north Coast

August 13, 2014 No Comments

Around a 30 minute drive from Falmouth the north coast has many places for a walk but one of our favourites here in the office has to be around from Chapel Porth to St Agnes.

WP_20140810_001 There are a couple of options for parking, if you are a national trust member you can park at Chapel Porth beach for free, non members can park for £5. There is a lovely cafe selling lunch and extravagant ice-creams called ‘hedgehogs’ (vanilla ice-cream coated in clotted cream and rolled in toasted hazelnuts – yum!)

The other option is a free car park up on the cliff near the old engine houses, just off Beacon Drive. The walk along the coast is beautiful with views towards Newquay and the long Chapel Porth beach below. There is history along the way too with old engine houses reminding us of the old mining industry in the area. I (Becca) have even been lucky enough to see a shark in the waters below!

Chapel Porth beach is a long sandy expanse at low tide with lots of coves and rock pools, perfect for any young explorers.
