Local Beaches in Cornwall

It’s why so many people are drawn to north Cornwall every year. Stretching from Bude to Perranporth along miles and miles of rugged coastline with stunning beaches, beautiful walks with views that will literally take your breath away. We think you’ll agree, there’s nowhere quite like it…

Dramatic and spellbinding, Bedruthan Steps is one of the most popular destinations in Cornwall and it’s easy to see why. This must-see stretch of coastline is littered with picture-postcard coves, spectacular views and colossal wind-swept cliffs. Beware that access to the sandy beach is steep and narrow, and the stairs are closed during winter. Toilets and parking are accessible year-round, while the popular tearoom has reduced opening times in winter. 10mins from The Park
