If you only do one thing in January…

January is a time for wrapping up warm and enjoying Cornwall’s blissfully quiet beaches.

If you fancy exploring a little further afield than Polzeath beach, the Atlantic House couldn’t be in a better spot for walking the South West Coast Path, which goes right past our front door.


The section of the coast path around Pentire Point is one of our favourite walks in both winter and summer. Taking in “The Rumps”, the headland’s unusual rocky outcrops, the path is only accessibly by foot so you’re guaranteed peace and quiet along the route. 

On a clear day you can see as far as Tintagel Castle to the north, and the views across the Camel Estuary and Trevose Head to the south are gorgeous. Grey seals and dolphins have also been spotted off the coast.

You can also walk a circular, 3.5 mile route around the headland, much of which is cared for by the National Trust. It takes between two and three hours.

Pack a picnic rug, thermos flask and camera, and soak up the views.
