Things To Do

Walking

Walking around the countryside and coast is limitless in this part of Cornwall.

There are many short circular walks from the Treaaron House, taking in beaches such as Treyarnon,Constantine,Boobys,and Mother Iveys.Longer walks will take in Harlyn Bay and Porthcothan as well as some inland country walks.

Treaaron is within striking distance of two major national walkways:-

The South West Coast Path
The  Camel Trail.

The South West Coast Path National Trail – 630 miles of superb coastal walking. From Minehead on the edge of the Exmoor National Park to the shores of Poole Harbour in Dorset it is the best way to enjoy the wonderful coastal scenery, wildlife and heritage.

It passes within 1 mile of Treaaron and will take you south to Newquay or north to Padstow over some of the most spectacular coastal scenary in the UK.

The Camel Trail, available free 365 days of the year, winds through some of Cornwall’s most beautiful and little-known countryside. Cornwall County Council converted 11 miles of disused railway beside the River Camel from track bed to trail, linking the towns of Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow. An extension follows the river towards Camelford.

It isn’t a road, it isn’t a path, and vehicles are banned. There are many visitors to the Trail each year; some use it daily for jogging or birdwatching, others for an occasional day out walking or cycling. Why not join them? Travel along the Camel Trail and enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Camel Valley.

Being an old railway track, the Trail is virtually level all the way. Although not a tarmac surface. it is mainly smooth, ideal for wheelchair users, pram and buggy pushers and people who have difficulty in walking on uneven surfaces. The Trail provides safe and easy access to unspoilt countryside for those people unable to use woodland and coastal paths.


Golf

There are two championship golf courses in North Cornwall.

Only 2 miles away is Trevose Golf and Country Club which recently held the Brabazon Amateur Golf Championship. Trevose has three courses:-

Championship 18 Hole-6800 yards-Par 72
The Headland  9 Hole-3000 yards-Par 35
The Short Course 9 Hole-1360 yards-Par 29.

A handicap card is required to play the 18 Hole course.Green fees range from £15 per round for the Short Course, £28 for the Headland, and £60 for the Championship course in summer.

Non members are more than welcome to enjoy not only the golf but the swimming pool, tennis courts and bar and restaurant.

St Enodoc Golf Club, in Rock, on the North Cornwall coast overlooks the Camel Estuary, with Padstow on the south side, and to the North out across the Atlantic. The location on the high sand dunes is ideal for golf combined with stunning sea views.

The club has two courses; the Church course is the James Braid designed Championship course, 6547 yards-Par 69 which in September 2005 hosted the English County Finals and the shorter Holywell course,4083 yards-Par 63 which is an ideal course for those wanting slightly less of a challenge.

The club is complete with practice ground, two putting greens and an excellent clubhouse complete with bars and restaurant. Green fees range from £19 per round for the Holywell to £55 for the Church course in summer. A handicap card is required to play the Church course.


Winter Storm Watchers Weekends

With the many westerly gales coming in from the Atlantic over the winter period, why not spend a long weekend or longer at Treaaron and enjoy the daytime walks along the Coastal Path.

Watch the breathtakingly large waves breaking on the exposed bays of the north Cornwall coast and then return to Treaaron to an open fire and hot refreshments.
