Easy access from parking lot; walked down with a 94yo. Church is full of history and interesting quirks and artifacts. The graveyard has been dug madly by badgers, have never seen this anywhere else! The beaches are lovely, unspoilt, full view of endless waves breaking...More

There is a National Trust car park at the end of the lane that takes you through the small hamlet of Gunwalloe and on to Church Cove. It is about a mile past the Halzephron pub. In the far right hand corner as you drive...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.

Doesn't get much better than this, one of those beaches that enables you to sit and relax for hours on end, without any form of disturbance. Parking is easy and the roads accessing the beach aren't of any concern. Would highly recommend.

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.

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
