Visited Bedruthan Steps over the bank holiday weekend. It was a shame that the steps themselves were closed but nevertheless the scenery is stunning and it’s a lovely walk along the coastal path towards Porthcothan. You can still access the beach if you walk right along to the other end and don’t mind navigating down a makeshift path and climbing a few steep rocks at the bottom. Hopefully the National Trust will sort the steps soon so the beach can be properly enjoyed as it would be a shame for the proper access to be lost! The cafe at the Carnwas carpark serves a great cream tea just a shame the wasps also take a fancy to cream and jam!!!

We took the open top bus from Newquay to Bedruthen Steps which was fantastic seeing all of the beautiful views across Cornwall and I would highly recommend this.
The man at the Bedruthen Steps car park welcomed us and told us of the tale of the Giant and the steps before we started the walk.
The walk was accessible with good signage but I would say there are quite a few steps if you struggle with your knees. Taking a hiking pole to steady yourself would be a good idea.
Even though the steps down to the beach weren’t open due to rockfall, it didn’t spoil our experience. The views are spectacular and taking a camera is a must!
After our walk we visited the tearoom which was incredible! The scones were warm served with cream and jam and a lovely mug of tea! My daughter had the coffee and walnut cake which she thoroughly enjoyed too.
We completed our day with a visit to the National Trust gift shop which was the best one that we’ve been in EVER!
Would highly recommend Bedruthen Steps as a day out.

This is one of my favourite places to visit! The NationalTrust car park is free to members and there is a nice cafe and toilets.
Unfortunately the steps down to Bedruthan were closed due to storm damage but the view was still stunning. We took a walk to Park Head taking in the dramatic coastline and almost reaching Porthcohan beach. We sat watching the waves crashing against the rocks as the tide came in. This was a very enjoyable
peaceful walk.

Stunning location, great walks, great views especially on a bright sunny day. However don’t expect your drinks loyalty card to be stamped, the cafe is not operated by the National Trust! That apart up to the usual standard.

Been coming here on and off for 30 years with initially my very young children and visited again today when in their 30”s. Food and staff attitude never fails to disappoint.

A word of advice. Scones ; are always cooked fresh so don;t arrive just before closing time expecting scones as they will be sold out and understandably they are unable to batch cook another load at such short notice just before they close. However they are willing to reserve a few if contacted at lunchtime if you are returning late in the afternoon

Dramatic coastal cliff walk with stunning views along part of the SW Coastal Path and across to the stacks. Steps to the beach are still closed after the 2019 rock fall but this doesn’t distract from the outstanding scenery. It’s operated by the National Trust so you pay for parking unless you are a member. There is a large car park with toilets, cafe and NT shop. Amazing place to visit and highly recommend!

We only had limited time here on this occasion but took advantage of the walks to view the breathtaking views of the coastline. NT car park and the steps are closed and have been for a while due to rockfalls and safety but it is so much more than just the steps. Some of the most beautiful scenery to be seen.

I visited mid week in October and there was no beach access due to a severe landslip in the February. I walked to the path towards Watergate bay which was extremely muddy, slippery and dangerous. Despite wearing decent footwear I slipped several times, falling over once. The views are spectacular however in autumnal weather the horrendous wind and muddy paths make it very treacherous and I would not advise visiting without the correct gear.

Ideal NT car park for walks along the cliff tops. Quite hilly in places but good access. Path to Bedruthan Steps is closed because of erosion, but the views are spectacular. Toilets and cafe available in the car park which is free to National Trust members.
