NATURAL BEAUTY ALL AROUND US. ..


In this area lying one side of the Gannel Estuary, it is almost as if time has stood still, and although modern additions have been made for the benefit of holidaymakers, the natural surroundings are quite charming, and mostly unspoilt. Golden sands and dunes are vast, whilst small coves are around every corner The coast path allows walkers and strollers to enjoy wonderful scenery complemented with colour variations according to the season. Spring to summer is certainly the best time, but for birdwatchers there is always much to see Porth Joke was once the haunt of Choughs, medium-sized birds related to the Jackdaw The Jackdaw is still very much in evidence, and a programme to re-introduce the Chough to Cornwall is in progress The National Trust headland, The Kelseys, is very popular.
