We were recommended a trip to Godrevy point to see some seals and we weren't disappointed. The National Trust staff were excellent, really helpful and friendly, and the walk along the coast was very beautiful, and not too taxing. We saw approximately 20 seals, some in the water, others in the cove. We could have sat there for hours. Definitely... More

Godrevy Head was one of the places many years ago that made us fall in one with Cornwall. This visit, some 25 years after our first one, was just as inspiring. Whilst walking along the cliff tops a skylark flew high above us just completing a perfect afternoon. If you are a member of the National Trust parking is free,... More

saw the seals in the water great, the car park still charges £4.00 but we joined the National Trust so we did not need to pay but we did need to show the card. the ice cream van only comes out if weather is fine.

Took the South-West Coastal Pathway from Hayle to Godrevy Head. This took 2-3 hours on a bright but breezy day and was well worth it. I hadn't realised that there was any part of Britain where you could walk on sandy beaches for over 2 hours in one direction and still not reach the end! We alternated between the coastal... More

One of my favourite spots on earth - a short walk over the headland to see the seals basking in the cove or walk along the sandy beach to Gwithian. Sit on the cliffs with an ice cream or make sand sculptures. Take pictures of the lighthouse or just stare at the crashing breakers... I am happy there in all... More

Our first visit back to Godrevy for a few years was in 2014, and the view is as excellent as always. We did find however that access to the site is now less accommodating as past years. The main field where you have to park has been blocked off from the cliff edge so you can no longer just sit... More

This National Trust park is absolutely gorgeous with fantastic walks and lovely beaches. We visited inbetween Christmas and New Year and were delighted to find lots of seals in a sheltered cove. Well worth a visit. In winter the parking is free but the loos are closed!

I have walked this headland every week for the last 2 years and am never disappointed. Throughout May & June the wild flowers are stunning, definitely my favourite time of year. The Coast is always lovely, sometimes with rough seas & sometimes gentle. A walk around the headland usually allows you to view the seals. During February 2013 I watched... More

This is a lovely walk and not to hard going, the views are brilliant all around and seeing the seals was a highlight. It is good to note though that the best times for seeing the seals is the autumn and winter months rather than spring and summer, also low tide is better than high tide. Some great wildlife seen...
