Dramatic coastline with views over huge rock stacks

Carnewas has become one of the most popular destinations on the north Cornish coast because of the spectacular cliff-top view of sea stacks stretching across Bedruthan beach (not Trust-owned).

This piece of coastline, just a few miles along the coast from Padstow, keeps itself hidden as you first enter the car park. However, take a short walk along the well established paths and you will be rewarded with views that are arguably some of the most impressive in Cornwall.

Take in the sea air on magnificent walks along the coast path towards Park Head and the sheltered Porth Mear cove beyond. Visitors in the spring and autumn will be treated to carpets of flowering squill as well as the stonechats and linnets often seen here.

National Trust members and Blue Badge holders park for free. Members please scan for a ticket.
