25 Best Walks: Pentire Point to Pentireglaze
Earlier in the summer, the Western Morning News included a stroll around the New Polzeath area in its 25 best summer walks feature.
Although we have now officially welcomed the autumn, the circular walk from Pentire Point to Pentireglaze remains spectacular and a little quieter after the summer season.
After reaching the rocks at Pentire Point, walk east until you reach another set of rocks, the location marked with an inscription as the location which inspired the WW1 poet Laurence Binyon to write ‘For The Fallen’.
A little further along is the location of the Rebecca De Mornay character Milady’s demise in the 1993 Hollywood classic, ‘The Musketeers’.
You’ll need sturdy shoes for this walk, which features rocky terrain. Keep walking until you reach The Rumps, a great spot for fishing if you happen to have brought along your rod.
Keep walking until you reach Pentireglaze, looking down to spot seals in the inlet in autumn and spring. You can keep walking on to Lundy Bay from here, or turn back to Polzeath, following the signs to Pentireglaze down the farm track until you reach the warmth of the local café or your very own apartment at Atlantic House.
