Walk - Crantock & Penpol Creek
1.7 miles (2.7 km)
Crantock Car Park - TR8 5RB Crantock Car Park
Easy - Reasonably level, with one gentle climb at the start
A short walk offering beautiful views over a tranquil estuary and the sweeping Atlantic coast, as well as the chance to explore the pretty coastal village of Crantock. Children will love the long sandy beach backed by dunes, and the stories of ancient saints arriving on peculiar boats and a wicked population buried in sand! A great walk in springtime: listen out for kittiwakes nesting on the cliffs, corn buntings feeding in the fields and great spotted woodpeckers drumming in the woodland. Great in summer too: the sound of birdsong along this part of the walk on a sunny evening is a real treat.
