Cornwall's Secret Coast
Cornwall's Secret Coast
  • Description
  • Related

Imagine a Mediterranean-style beach all to yourself – in Britain’s top summer holiday destination, and in the peak summer period. Yes, it really is true. A world away from the crowds of Newquay, St Ives and Looe lie scores of stunningly beautiful expanses of golden sand that have been completely missed by the guidebooks and brochures.

Here lies the real Cornwall, the one that you no longer readily see, the delectable duchy as it was before so much of the easily-accessible parts of the coast became commercialised.

Centuries-old fishing harbours off the beaten track, lofty ruins of tin and copper mines, coastal paths lush with tropical vegetation, villages that time forgot, enticing coves hidden beneath soaring slate cliffs, secret surfing spots, ancient chapels and holy wells and a fairytale castle with a secret hidden in its depths.

A host of hidden locations is revealed in these pages. Many can be reached by car; others are accessible only on foot, with walks of a mile or less, but in each case, the end result really is worth the effort if you are looking for something truly different.

So, forget the big resorts. If visiting Cornwall really means getting away from it all, this perfectly-sized book, packed with beautiful photographs and priceless information,is the one for you.

Robin Jones has been visiting the coast of south-west England since childhood, exploring places off the beaten track as a labour of love. A native of Solihull and a graduate of Birmingham City University, he is a former evening newspaper news editor, founding editor of Heritage Railway magazine, and is a landscape photographer.

He is a regular visitor to the Padstow ‘Obby ‘Oss festival and even has Cornish and Devon Rex cats! Amongst other books he has written for Halsgrove are Lighthouses of South West England, Britain’s Bizarre Railways, Isambard Kingdom Brunel: Engineer Extraordinaire and Spirit of Padstow.

Imprint: PiXZ. ISBN 978 0 85710 073 3, hardback, 210x148mm, 144 pages. Published May 2014. Reprinted June 2018.
