Beaches, Coves and Valleys

Wonderful Cornish beaches are a short drive from Tregulland.

For sand, fun and a taste of the classic British seaside head to one of Bude’s three beaches. Widemouth Bay is just 14 miles from Tregulland. Whether you wish to swim, sunbathe, surf, hunt for marine life in the hundreds of rock pools or just comb the beach, Widemouth has it all.

A craggy cove, with a beach only revealed at low tide, Strangles Beach is a favourite with Tregulland’s guests. Accessed via a steep climb down the cliffs, it is quiet all year round.

Crackington Haven is a small bay with good cliff top walks where you can take in the breathtaking views. Just 10 miles from Tregulland, you can grab a bite to eat and watch the waves roll in from the nearby Coombe Barton Inn or the Cabin Cafe.

Rocky Valley on the coast path from Tintagel to Boscastle is a hidden gem. Two small carvings on the rock face, just east of a ruined mill, possibly date from the Bronze Age. The walk down the valley to the coast is stunning.

Kids Ahoy!

Head to the sands at Bude and get the kids enrolled in the Surf School. Anyone can have a go and it is surprising how fast your children will be standing up and riding the waves. Highly addictive!

Close to Tregulland there are many wonderful beaches to explore, rockpools to examine and crags to climb.

For a taste of the countryside, discover Bodmin Moor on horseback. Ideal for wannabe cowboys or young Elizabeth Taylors.

Or hike down Rocky Valley to the sea and marvel at the Bronze Age carvings.

And if you would like to indulge in some beauty and health pampering our expert beauty therapists offer a full range of treatments.

For a trip out to the pub, head to the Rising Sun at Altarnun, a 10 minute drive away – it has a great list of local ales. While in Cornwall you may not be able to resist a visit to Rick Stein’s restaurants in Padstow. Try your luck with his infamously hard-to-reserve main restaurant, or the Brasserie and the fish and chip shop, which are much easier for drop-in visits.

Want to get active?  Surfing, all kinds of watersports, horse-riding, cycling and country pursuits can all be enjoyed close by. Or head to the harbour at Boscastle, one of the few unspoilt harbours in Cornwall.

Adventures on your Doorstep

Venture out of the cosiness of Tregulland and you will find substantial grounds which include landscaped areas and an orchard with picnic benches. A wooded stream leads down to a lake where you can take out a row boat or go fishing (there are plenty of ghostie and mirror carp weighing over 20lbs).

There’s an outdoor play area for the kids.

The grounds are rich in wildlife so you may spot an otter going down the river, starlings passing overhead, or even a kingfisher. Tregulland looks onto Cornwall’s ‘Twin Peaks’, Rough Tor and Brown Willy, which is the highest point in the county. Rough Tor can be climbed in a short hour-long walk.
