Get Your Walking Boots on for National Walking Month

While you’re visiting Trevornick this May you can explore Cornwall’s coast paths to celebrate National walking month from the doorstep of your pitch, Eurotent, Static Caravan or cottage! 2019 is also the last chance you’ll have to admire the locations featured in BBC’s Poldark whilst the hit drama is still on the air (we can’t believe it’s the final season!). With it being just a short walk through the sand dunes to Holywell Bay beach where they filmed.

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. Here at Trevornick, we cater to canines with camping and touring fields, local doggy day-care service and are installing a new ‘Bark & Bath’ outdoor dog shower station, ready for summer 2019.

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

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.

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.
