    Dramatic Walk with Stunning Views
    Dramatic coastal cliff walk with stunning views along part of the SW Coastal Path and across to the stacks. Steps to the beach are still closed after the 2019 rock fall but this doesn’t distract from the outstanding scenery. It’s operated by the National Trust so you pay for parking unless you are a member. There is a large car park with toilets, cafe and NT shop. Amazing place to visit and highly recommend!

    Cafe is not NT!
    Stunning location, great walks, great views especially on a bright sunny day. However don’t expect your drinks loyalty card to be stamped, the cafe is not operated by the National Trust! That apart up to the usual standard.

    So good
    Been coming here on and off for 30 years with initially my very young children and visited again today when in their 30”s. Food and staff attitude never fails to disappoint. A word of advice. Scones ; are always cooked fresh so don;t arrive just before closing time expecting scones as they will be sold out and understandably they are unable to batch cook another load at such short notice just before they close. However they are willing to reserve a few if contacted at lunchtime if you are returning late in the afternoon

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The walk along the coastal path is quite stunning. More of beautiful Cornwall. Can’t get enough of it.
The NT shop is also worth a mention. We chatted with two of the loveliest ladies (A and N) who are a credit to the NT.

Beautiful coastal walks with great views. The scones at the NT cafe are THE BEST - freshly made on site and huge. You'll find them hard to beat!

We love a national trust hence why we are members.
The scenery on the walks are to die for! The cafe in the car park is beautiful, the food is out this world.
We had homemade soup with crusty bread it was gorgeous.
It’s dog friendly, and gets very busy but I can see why.
Stunning place!

Absolutely beautiful walk across the cliffs. The views were outstanding. Small cafe at car park and wished we had taken a picnic.

A great visit. The scenery is spectacular. Sadly a rockfall meant we couldn’t reach the beach. However a walk along the cliff top was amazing. It was a great photographic opportunity. The National Trust had excellent parking. The cafe was great and we had a wonderful lunch including the best Ploughman’s ever. The toilets were fine. Well worth a visit. We will certainly come again

We took the open top bus from Newquay to Bedruthen Steps which was fantastic seeing all of the beautiful views across Cornwall and I would highly recommend this.
The man at the Bedruthen Steps car park welcomed us and told us of the tale of the Giant and the steps before we started the walk.
The walk was accessible with good signage but I would say there are quite a few steps if you struggle with your knees. Taking a hiking pole to steady yourself would be a good idea.
Even though the steps down to the beach weren’t open due to rockfall, it didn’t spoil our experience. The views are spectacular and taking a camera is a must!
After our walk we visited the tearoom which was incredible! The scones were warm served with cream and jam and a lovely mug of tea! My daughter had the coffee and walnut cake which she thoroughly enjoyed too.
We completed our day with a visit to the National Trust gift shop which was the best one that we’ve been in EVER!
Would highly recommend Bedruthen Steps as a day out.
