Description

Park your car in Trebetherick village (in Ham Field next to crossroads with Daymer Lane for example or you can start this walk from Daymer Bay car park if you want).

(D/A) From crossroads with Daymer Lane, go past the bench, then turn left in the driveway close to Mowhay Café sign and go straight to the small footpath in front of you. This path reaches a curving driveway. Bear right and follow the road for 100 metres ignoring the road which leads to St Moritz resort on your right.

(1) Go past white and blue cabins and go down the track on your left when you reach the "private road access" signpost. Go past Summertide property before the track bends right. After a few metres, bear left to the small path which leads to the South West Coast path close to Greenaway Beach. Follow this way on your left along the coast with great views to Pentire Point until you reach Daymer Bay. Past Daymer Bay car park, walk the beach for 100 metres along the fence, then turn left and quickly right behind the dune avoiding the golf course.

(2) Then, follow straight the steep path in front of you which leads to Brea Hill. The view from this hill is gorgeous. You can see the whole estuary, Steeper Point, Pentire Point and Padstow on the other bank!
Continue descending the large grassy way on the other side of the hill heading back to the coastal path.

(3) Follow the yellow arrow signpost ignoring severals paths on your right and bear left when you reach the junction with the white rectangular stone. Be careful, the path you will use crosses St Enodoc Golf Course! Go slightly up the path until you reach an asphalt road.

(4) Cross it over walking the track in front of you, then follow white stones which mark the footpath leading to St Enodoc Church. You can visit this small church (from the 12th century) in the middle of a lovely landscape. After your visit, go up the path skirting the church until you reach a gate which leads to an open meadow.

(5) Walk this field along the hedge on your left which avoids the golf course until you reach a stile. Back next to the golf course past the stile, turn right after more or less 100 metres in a narrow path (a bit hidden in the grove). Go straight ahead walking along with properties, then cross a footbridge before you join a road. Bear right in Daymer Lane going up for 300 metres until you reach crossroads close to your car. (D/A)
