Around Tregardock


Caradoc is surrounded by a working family farm whose 250 acres stretch out towards and along the coastal path. It’s not the sort of farm with tractors humming around but it is home to a flock of black Hebridean sheep. Having never had any kind of agrochemical treatment and always been kept as natural pasture, the fields attract a wide variety of wild life while the hedgerows and banks are carpeted with wild flowers in the Spring


Situated a few miles north of Port Isaac and a similar distance south of Tintagel, Caradoc is a haven for walkers who want to explore a remote and dramatic section of the South West Coast path. Head south past Port Gaverne and its inn to the well known fishing harbour of Port Isaac and on to Port Quin, the Rumps and Polzeath. North lies the beautiful tidal beach (and pubs) of Trebarwith Strand, Tintagel and, eventually, Boscastle.


As well as our own beautiful tidal beach (Tregardock), we are well positioned for Trebarwith Strand and Polzeath (both good for surfing and surfing lessons), and for the calmer waters of Daymer Bay and the water sports haven of Rock. There are also many other lesser known, mainly tidal beaches that we can point you towards.


St Enedoc, Roserrow, Lanhydrock, Bowood, St Mellion, Kew, Bude and Launceston courses are all within a 40 minute drive

Houses, Gardens and other attractions

There are many National Trust properties nearby including Lanhydrock (famous for its gardens), Pencarrow House, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Trebah. Alternatively, cycle the Camel trail, visit the local Camel Valley Vineyard, explore the wilderness of Bodmin Moor or climb the steep trail to King Arthur’s castle at Tintagel.

Day Trips

The Eden project is approximately 45 minutes drive while the artists’ paradise of St Ives can be reached in about 1 ½ hours. Tresco and the Scilly Isles are also well worth a day trip. 

Fishing and Shooting

There is good fishing available from the rocks at Tregardock Beach (although the tides need careful watching) and boats can be hired from both Rock and Boscastle. River fishing may also be available (with sufficient notice) as also is pheasant shooting in season.
