We didn't get to go down to the beach because the tide came in. We wasted to much time eating ice cream up top and missed it. But made new friends and enjoyed the view and walking.

We visit Padstow once a year and come rain or shine (usually sunshine luckily) this is always on the list to visit Bedruthan is the epitome of the Cornish coastline - rugged, wild and breathtaking. Come for the views and stay for the fresh air.

The beach was amazing when the tide was out and the cliff top views were breathtaking. The scones from the cafe were the best we had ever tasted. So good we came back twice.

We were staying at Mawgan Porth nearby. First visit here was when it was sea misty and damp. The tide was in so could not get onto the beach. Views were still stunning. Visited the tea shop and had pasty and salad for lunch. Had...More

Lovely views and fabulous scenery steps quite challenging to get down to the beach but if you take your time and take care it’s achievable. Worth the effort
