Pentire, National Trust

Looked after by the National Trust and overlooking Polzeath and Padstow Bay, Pentire headland has been inhabited by humans since 4000BC but remains mostly undeveloped and a coastal escape for visitors. The remnants of Iron Age ramparts can be seen at the Rumps and the scars of lead and silver mining are etched over the headland. Our relationship with the land continues and today we are farming for the benefit of nature, supporting the abundance of wildflowers and a variety of wildlife and birds that have made Pentire their home. Walking routes, many of which are accessible, offer spectacular views along the coast; with Tintagel to the north and Trevose Head to the south. This gateway to the coast has parking, toilets (including separate baby changing facilities and a Changing Places) and café. You’ll find courtyard as well as indoor seating, with a wood burning stove for chillier days. A restored orchard (also accessible to wheelchairs and buggies) provides a sensory space for picnics and play. In partnership with Countryside Mobility, an all-terrain mobility scooter is available to hire, with routes that take in coastal views.
