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.

A lovely spot to view the rugged Cornish coastline with ample parking and a very pleasant cafe. on a good day you can see for miles and the seabirds on the cliffs add to the experience. Walks are easy and well marked.

A super place for a coastal walk. Turn left at the cliff top and the walk is quite easy. Turn right and the walk is a bit more demanding. You can walk for 10 minutes or 4 hours. Super views. The tea room/café at the...More

The steps at Bedruthan are really stunning. We walked the coastal path to Park Head which has wonderful coastal views in both directions. It's about three miles to park head and back to the Car Park at Carnewas, but well worth the effort. The tide...More

Bedruthan Steps is stunning just by its natural unspoilt beauty. The coast path is breathtaking and well worth a walk in either direction. The cafe does amazing food and portions are generous. Staff are playing lite and helpful too.

We came here on a misty, drizzly afternoon and were so surprised at how the weather only added to the beauty and mystery here. SO glad we didn't let the weather dictate our itinerary. A nice hike, lovely tea room.

This trail starts in the visitors centre and takes around 1:30 return, or si they say. It's not very difficult but I should say that the views are so amazing that you will want to stop continuously to take pictures, so better think about 2h...More

Bedruthan steps and area is absolutely stunning but be careful not to get cut off by the tide. Access to the beach is very steep and not suitable for everyone maybe.

We took our grandson down in a carrier, it is fairly steep but there are handrails all of the way down so as long as you take your time it is not a problem
