A couple of weeks ago we explored Trevose Head, a headland managed by the National Trust towards Padstow in Cornwall. We parked towards the tip of the headland not far from the lighthouse in a National Trust carpark. Check out my paragraph at the end to see how you can save money on a National Trust membership!
From Trevose Lighthouse we walked around Trevose headland to Mother Ivey’s Bay, passing the Padstow lifeboat station on the way, before walking back to the carpark via Booby’s Bay with Constantine Bay in the distance and past a rather incredible blowhole known as Round Hole.
Read on to see our photos from our Cornwall walk and more about what we saw.
Some amazing views behind us as we begin our walk. Booby’s Bay to the left and Constantine Bay to the right. You can just about see Treyarnon Beach to the far right. Not long ago we walked along all these beaches from Treyarnon to Booby’s for our first exploration of Booby’s Bay!
Here’s my Instagram from that day when we were on Booby’s Bay:
Back to our Trevose Head walk… The lighthouse!
Trevose Head Lighthouse. Ben, my husband, wanted to do this walk to see the lighthouse as we can see the lighthouse from Newquay!
We’d also heard of Mother Ivey’s Bay and wanted to visit.
So great the sun came out for us!
We walked down to the lighthouse for some obligatory photos and then continued along the Trevose Headland path towards Mother Ivey’s Bay.
The path goes up behind the lighthouse. I wonder if anyone lives there?! It would be a pretty cool house!
Here’s the headland we walked along. I’m not sure why some of these bays have two names in Cornwall, but Polventon Bay is also known as Mother Ivey’s Bay.
Before going to the beach we took a little detour to see the lifeboat station. Ben got a lot closer to the lifeboat station than me, as one of the kids didn’t want to go that way 🙄 so I started heading towards the beach with them instead!
Padstow RNLI lifeboat station is rather picturesque!
Mother Ivey’s Bay Cornwall 🏝
One quick last snap of Padstow lifeboat station before we walk around to Mother Ivey’s Bay.
By the time we walk down to Mother Ivey’s Bay, there’s noone there. We have the beach to ourselves!
The kids enjoy writing their names in the sand! I love the dramatic black cliffs.
Bella climbs up the rock! She gets stuck, but I let her figure how to get down as she got up there, and she manages!
Lots of footprints in the sand, but a very quiet beach… in winter anyway!
Time to head back to the carpark, but I manage a quick zoomed in pic of Padstow lifeboat station.
Almost back to where we started… Booby’s and Constantine behind us. Lots of surfers too! There were so many surfers out this weekend.
Up here to the right, you can see the ‘Round Hole’ which is a blowhole on Trevose head where the roof of a cave fell in! It was quite scary to walk past and we didn’t want to get too close! The kids assumed an asteroid had caused the hole! More info here about the Round hole and a great photo.
