Overlooking Polzeath in North Cornwall, Pentire headland remains mostly undeveloped and a coastal escape for visitors. Footpaths, including several accessible routes, criss-cross the headland offering spectacular views of the coast and countryside. Remnants of Iron Age ramparts can be seen at the Rumps and the scars of lead and silver mining are etched over the headland.

A restored, accessible sensory orchard provides the perfect place for picnics and play. An all terrain mobility scooter is available for hire in partnership with Countryside Mobility.

Today we are farming for the benefit of nature, supporting the abundance of wildflowers and a variety of wildlife and birds that have made Pentire their home.


Fully fitted Changing Places, accessible any time with a RADAR key or speak with a member of staff. 

Seating available throughout for visitors with limited mobility – there is seating in the main courtyard and welcome building for the café. There are also wheelchair accessible picnic tables. There is also seating in the orchard and sporadically around the headland.

A ‘Tramper’ mobility scooter is available to hire in partnership with Countryside Mobility. Please email to enquire about availability and to book. Users must be a member of Countryside Mobility for insurance purposes. The cost of membership is £2.50 for a 2 week taster session or £10 for a year.

There are numerous accessible paths, including to the orchard and wider headland. Please speak with someone from the Welcome Team for more information about routes available or email us ahead of your visit.
