Great day at Carnewas , lovely walk across the cliffs. This is National Trust Car Park. Great place with the café and shop on site. Lovely walk across the cliffs. Good place for a walk with the dogs or children.

My husband and I went here for morning coffee. We found the staff friendly and the coffee excellent .We were able to walk out to the cliffs beforehand. We will certainly go there again maybe for lunch

Beautiful place to visit. We parked in the National Trust car park that doesn't have the cafe which turned out to be a plus as we may not have walked along the top of the bay and experienced the incredible views. We walked down the steps (not for those that don't like heights, they are very steep!) and the beach... More

Always on our agenda when we visit Cornwall. Not for the faint-hearted through - the steps down (and obviously back up again) need precision, as they are uneven. Sturdy footwear is recommended, as there are also rocky areas to negotiate at the bottom. Worth it for the fabulous views, caves, and beach area - but not for pitching up, unless... More

Lovely scenic walk along the cliff top and down the steps to the beach (although watch your step!). Would highly recommend the National Trust cafe by the car park.

Possibly takes top spot for our fav beach in Cornwall! Very steep steps down to the beach make for an exciting walk and the beach (not for swimming) is huge and has great rock pools and caves for exploring. Need a certain level of mobility to do this but our 5yr old coped well. Lovely friendly tea room to reward... More

The National Trust visitor centre at Carnewas and the nearby clifftop walks are spectacluar. The stairs down on the beach at Bedruthan are steep and need care but at low water there is a fascinating rock-strewn sandy beach.

The steep steps down to the beach are well worth doing - the beach is stunning. It reminds me of an outdoor cathedral. The view if you don't want to brave the steps is still worth it.
