Get Your Walking Boots on at Trevornick for National Walking Month


Visitors to Trevornick can explore Cornwall’s coast paths this May to celebrate National Walking Month. 2019 will also be the last chance for visitors to admire the locations featured in BBC’s Poldark whilst the hit drama is still on air.

Trevornick is just a short walk through the sand dunes to Holywell Bay Beach which was heavily featured in the hit BBC One drama. There’s no need to leave a furry member of the family at home either as Cornwall is renowned as one of the UK’s most dog friendly holiday destinations, with over 250 miles of coastal paths and 100 pooch perfect beaches. Trevornick caters for canines with camping and touring fields, and the local doggy day-care service. They’re also installing a new ‘Bark & Bath’ outdoor dog shower station, ready for summer 2019.

Guests to the five star holiday park and Premier Park can save in May with a Half Term Deal from only £315 for a family of 4 camping and touring.

To make the most of National Walking Month we have gathered the top 5 walks surrounding Trevornick Holiday Park, taking you along cliff tops, following the shoreline and through the countryside.

1. Holywell Bay
Wind through Trevornick, over the golf course and down through the sand dunes to Holywell Beach for a breath-taking view of Cornwall’s famous bay as seen on Poldark! This 10 minute walk and climb over the sand dunes will ensure visitors have more time to explore the beauty spot.

2. Polly Joke
Follow the coast path from Holywell Bay, past Chick Rock, where seals can often be found playing in the waves, around the headland and down the coast towards Newquay and you will find Polly Joke beach. A favourite with locals, this untouched beach has a river, which runs through it providing four legged friends with a great place to cool off. Leaving Trevornick this walk follows the South West Coast Path and is approximately 2.6 miles taking 55 minutes.

3. Crantock
Following the walk to Polly Joke walkers can extend their time on the South West Coast Path by heading further along the coast towards Newquay, reaching Crantock. One of the area’s biggest beaches, Crantock is renowned for its natural beauty and serene estuary that stretches inland towards the town. Setting off from Trevornick this walk is around 3.8 miles and takes 1 hour and 15 minutes, it follows the previous walk to Polly Joke along the South West Coast Path adding an extra 30 minutes to get to Crantock.

4. Ellenglaze
Starting at the bottom of Holywell Bay a footpath leads walkers around meadows, along lanes, across fields and over stiles through the valley to the village of Cubert. This walk is approximately 1.5 miles taking 40 minutes.

5. Perranporth
Beginning at Holywell and scaling the South West Coast Path towards Perranporth, in the opposite direction to Polly Joke and Crantock, you’ll enjoy close up views of Gull Rock as you walk along the cliff tops to one of the region’s biggest beaches at low tide. Leaving from Holywell Bay this walk takes around 1 hour and 29 minutes and is 4.2 miles.
