Spent a few hours sitting and reading enjoying the excellent weather, also went down the paths to bedruthan steps all 140ish of them on to the beach. Very pleasant afternoon would go again when we are next in Cornwall.

The views here of the coast and the beach are amazing, but care is needed on the fairly steep walk down to the beach. The whole area has a peaceful air about it and there are plenty of opportunities for photos. Twitchers will be pleased...More

So what do you need to know? A) this place gets super busy, all the time. B) the cafe itself is very small given the location and popularity (about 9 tables inside - 4 tables of 4 and 5 tables of 6/8) plus outside seating....More

great place to visit, with fantastic views, be aware there are a lot of steps to get to the beach, if you cant manage them go for a cream tea, they are brilliant home made scones.

We were told about this place, food, views etc. Unfortunately, we picked a day that was very foggy, could not see much. But the café was well worth a visit, plenty of choice on the menu, pricey, but well worth, quantity was not a problem,...More

I would recommend paying for at least 3-4 hours of parking, going at low tide and then walk down the steps to the beach and spend some time there on the beach. You will be well tired on the way back with the 100+ steps...More

A stunning piece of nature to be sure, but do check the tide tables and be sure to go when the tide is out. That way you can enjoy the full splendour of the beach and the giant shards of shoreline that has been broken...More

A recent reviewer said it was £2:50 for 2hrs. As NT members we didn't have to pay so don't know how much after that.

To go down to the beach would be difficult with a pram. If there are two of you, one could hold the toddler and the other carry the pram. Enjoy the thigh burn on the climb up carrying a two year old!
