Holywell and Polly Joke


Quite a long circular walk of about 4.5 miles, but great to blow away those cobwebs on the North Cornish coast just South of Newquay.

Starting at West Pentire, an area of outstanding beauty with many species of wildflowers not commonly found. Not far into the walk, you reach the cove of Polly Joke, a quiet unadulterated sandy beach. Then a around the headland to Holywell Bay, a surf beach backed by huge sand dunes, caves and a river.
Make a day of it and spend some time on these two beaches. Try and arrive at Holywell at low tide to find the cave with the 'holy well' - a grotto-like series of pools contained in rocks tinted red and blue from the mineral rich natural spring.

Every trail pack contains: Map and directions for the walk, Mini booklet of 15 things to spot or do on that walk,  Wooden dog badge, Natural cotton bag for collecting, 2 x Scorecards and a pencil.
Please note: dog badge design may vary from one in photograph.
