BEACHES: ONE OF CORNWALL’S HIDDEN GEMS
16 May 2014
Cornwall has hundreds of beautiful and amazing beaches, all of which are places where many people have enjoyed days which have led to happy memories for many years.
But now our local newspaper wants to know which its readers’ favourite beach in Cornwall is.
The West Briton has launched a campaign to find the locals’ choice and is asking for nominations from readers.
Among the beaches it suggests are several close to The Valley, including Porthcurno, Gwithian, Fistral and Perranporth.
So we thought this marked a good opportunity to sing the praises of one of our favourites.
This particular beach is a real hidden gem but is a favourite with people on dog-friendly breaks in Cornwall, and every time we recommend it to a dog-loving guest they always come back immensely pleased by our recommendation.
The beach we’re talking about is the small strip of pebble beach at the foot of Trelissick House’s gardens, which looks out onto the Fal estuary.
Trelissick is just a five minute drive from The Valley, which means guests with dogs needn’t keep their pets cooped up in the car for long times while heading to the beach.
It’s also quiet and spacious, with dogs able to enjoy acres to run around in. Trelissick also offers variety, with a walk through broad sweeping fields necessary to reach the beach.
But the main quality of Trelissick which makes us love it so much is its peaceful atmosphere.
We love nothing more than to stroll down to the beach in early evening with a disposable barbecue, watch the dogs run around and the sun set on the Fal estuary.
