Trevone is a great community with a local store, surf shop, cafe and rather special restaurant – and most importantly, two fantastic beaches – one large and sandy, and one rocky. The main sandy cove, which is ideal for sand castle building, stretches back to the beach car park and has the added attraction of lifeguards during the summer months, offering greater security. There are plenty of nooks and crannies as well as great stretches of golden sand. It is great for surfing also, with some protection from south-west winds like its neighbour, Harlyn. You can hire surfboards and wetsuits at Trevone at the big beach shop. The Madrips cafe by the beach serves good snacks all day and simple good food in the evening during summer months, with occasional fantastic food when the right chef takes up residence! Many consider Trevone a perfect Cornwall beach.
Around the bay to the west is the rocky beach, Newtrain, which is perfect for rock pooling or shell collecting and also features a natural swimming pool. This is fantastic for a swim away from the waves, particularly at quiet times.
Up above the sandy beach there is fantastic walking, past the blow-hole (a collapsed sea cave) on round towards Hawker’s Cove, the Camel estuary and Padstow. On the way, if you are keen-eyed, you may even see the ‘smuggler’s passage’ hewn into the rocks of an inlet. But take care if you decide to go in. To the west of Newtrain beach, the coast path provides easy walking around to Harlyn and beyond to Trevose Head.
Our properties are all located within minutes of the beaches and the sea. From every one, the beach is accessible by foot, either on the main beach road, or on the myriad of footpaths and byways crossing Trevone. The beach road, although busy in high summer, is not fast moving – ensuring that any journeys should not be hazardous or difficult.
Surfboards, and westsuits can be hired or bought at Rocky Point, and the cafe serves coffee and lunches on its terrace overlooking the beach. From 2011, during the season, rather special evening meals are also being served. Eddie prepares some great food in the kitchen, while James looks after guests front of house. Form many over 2011, the trip to Padstow was even too far with such great food and ambiance being a short walk away.
Padstow itself is very easy to visit from Trevone – and for those who want to spend many evenings in Padstow, Trevone may be the first place to look for a suitable house. The shopping in Padstow continues to become more sophisticated and the choice of fine dining or gourmet takeaway probably second to none. There are boat trips to take from the harbour – or just relax and watch the coming and goings of fishing boats, locals and visitors. The ferry is great fun, landing at Rock – itself a reasonable walk round to Polzeath. Or meet friends staying Polzeath-side half-way for a picnic or pint! If you travel over in the evening, there is also a water taxi to ferry you back to Padstow late into the evening.
Trevone is situated close to Trevose Golf Club, being just a short drive to Constantine. Or, St Enodoc Golf Club is across the estuary on the ferry or via the road over the bridge at Wadebridge.
A wonderful place for family summer holidays, golfing breaks, amazing walks along the coastal path, or easy journeys to many places of interest, such as the Eden project or King Arthur’s Castle at Tintagel. Come for Christmas or New Year celebrations – or just take a winter break.
There is a ban on dogs on the sandy beach between 15th May and 30th September, although you can take them onto the beach before 10am and after 6pm during these months. The rocky beach remains dog-friendly all year round. The cliff walks and public footpaths also remain perfect for exercising your hound, and we consequently get plenty of dogs staying with us in Trevone.
