My Favourite is a circular walk, Constantine Bay to Porthcothan via a natural pool at Treyarnon beach, views of tiny islands, headlands and tiny coves named after wine. High on the list is across dunes and headland between Rock and Polzeath returning via St Enodoc Church where Sir John Betjeman is buried. We love the iwalkcornwall suggestions, well worth a look!

For the ultimate day, hire a bike at Bridge Bike Hire in Wadebridge, cycle the level 3km route along the stunning Estuary, arrive in Padstow, then secure the bikes, walk around the Harbour town, afterwards the foot ferry across to Rock for a drink at The Mariners.

Golf Courses

Cornwall is home to a collection of high-quality courses with excellent practice facilities, great golf tuition and some of the most spectactular Coastal fairways.

My favourite has always been the famous Trevose Golf Course, play along the headland and watch the waves crash. The halfway house is not to be missed! Just around the Estuary towards Rock is the well renowned St Enodoc Golf Course, of the two courses here, The Church Course is ranked among the top 100 golf courses in the world, with towering dunes, this is a testing course. Close by to the Resort is Merlin Golf Club  and an enjoyable links golf course at Newquay Golf Club provides breath-taking views over the Atlantic Ocean.
