Visiting in October, we could take the dogs and it wasn’t busy. We loved this beach! So unspoilt. Beautiful sunny day, gorgeous setting with the little church overlooking the beach and fabulous views from the cliff tops. Being National Trust members we had free parking...More

We picked blackberries on our way to the beach. There was a really nice church and cottages on the way. The weather was lovely and sunny. Lovely views from the beach, a great relaxing afternoon. Fab.

Two beaches - we visited the dog friendly beach. Very rocky but a great beach and less busy than the other one.

Love coming here. Easily accessible. Easy to park. Lifeguards present. It is nearly always windy here. Family friendly. Bit gravelly though if you prefer soft sand. Charming little church.

We found this wonderful little beach off the beaten track. Fantastic spot for sun bathing and swimming, adequate parking but get there early and there are toilets and a lovely café for food.

Old church is lovely in a very curious location. Have been here before but now you can no longer see the church properly from the beach which is a shame. The church is now practically hidden because of high hedge screening it. No longer able...More

I can't remember such a gravestone. I've done a quick bit of research and if you go to Cornwall Online Parish Clerks and find the parish of Gunwalloe there is an e-mail link to the local Clerk (Geneology) who can probably... More
