DOWNS BARN FARM

Coast and Beaches

With access to the coast in almost every direction, we are spoiled for choice, from wild rugged coastline to glorious secluded sandy coves!  You can set off for a challenging walk along the coastal path or just wander down to the beach with a good book and watch the world go by!

St Ives – A fabulous stretch of sand, and other places to visit include the Tate Gallery and the artist community.

St Loy

,

St Loy is perhaps best known for its wooded valley leading down to the coast. This is a beautiful walk any time of year, but is possibly at its best when bluebells carpet the floor in early Spring. It is at the bottom of this woodland walk that you will find the cove. It is a fairly wide bay between Boscawen and Merthen Points. There is nothing in the way of sand at the cove, the foreshore consists of fairly uniformly sized rounded rocks and boulders. This doesn't detract from the beauty of the spot and guarantees it is never busy.  

Nanjizal Bay

Situated near Land’s End, just a short drive from the farm and only accessible by footpath, makes it a wonderfully peaceful place to take a walk, have a swim or sunbathe. The beautiful beach is surrounded by cliffs which contain numerous caves and is often visited by seals.

Cape Cornwall

Watch the sunset at Cape Cornwall, a spectacular location where the Atlantic Ocean meets the English Channel. Rugged scenery and glorious walks.
