  • At Godrevy you can spot the largest seal colony in Cornwall. You need to walk out to the east side of the headland and look down into Mutton Cove.

    The cove is home to a large colony of North Atlantic Grey Seals. The best time to see them is in the winter but even in the summer you will probably see a few seals hauled up on the beach.

    Please take notice of the signage around the top of the cove, keep quiet, keep dogs on leads and make no attempt to climb down the cliff.

  • Like everywhere on the Cornish coast, if you are lucky you will see seals and dolphins, but it's not guaranteed. There are boats that will take you out looking for them, and over the years there have been sightings of seals in the harbour at Newquay.

    If you are lucky enough to spot them in the harbour, do not be tempted to approach them, seals are wild animals and have a bite far worse than a dogs!

  • That all depends on what you are looking for? North Cornwall tends to be wilder, rugged cliffs, long sandy windswept beaches, a land of myth's and legends...

    The south coast is gentler, historic fishing villages, small sheltered coves and green fields running down to the water's edge.

    Whichever coast you choose, you will receive a warm welcome, and if you do get bored, it's never much more than an hour's drive from one side to the other.
