If you are looking to fill up a day out near Newquay, why not combine a morning at the Elizabethan Trerice Manor (National Trust), followed by an afternoon walk around the headland at nearby Pentire Head, finishing up with a delicious Cornish ice cream from the kiosk.
Trerice Manor is a small Elizabethan country house owned by the National Trust with delightful gardens, barn restaurant and local plants, art & gifts for sale. Try out some Tudor outdoor games – Kayling and Slapcock – on the bowling green!
Trerice Manor is in Kestle Mill near Newquay. For more information here is link to the National Trust website: Trerice House
After lunch in the Barn, head off for a walk to Pentire head, just a short drive around the edge of Newquay. There is a car park with toilets and a kiosk selling drinks and ice creams. The views around the headland are breathtaking – Crantock Beach with its huge caves and sand dunes to the west and to the east the magnificent surfing beach at Fistral, not to mention the towering cliffs and bird and plant life to spot. You may be lucky enough to spot seals, dolphins and sharks too!
