Tried & tested dog walks: the St Enodoc loop
In part three of the series, Marketing Manager Katy and her dappled Dachshund Luna share their favourite dog walks.
A short circular walk starting at the Daymer Bay car park taking you across the famous St Enodoc Golf Course, past the picture perfect St Enodoc Church, around the scenic coast path that hugs the side of Brea Hill and down onto the golden sand of Daymer Bay beach.
Location: Daymer Bay, a 5 minute drive from Polzeath and 10 minutes from Rock (grid reference SW928776, nearest postcode PL27 6SA).
Distance: 1.5 miles.
Time: 1 hour (including time to take in the scenery).
Difficulty: Easy to moderate (some of the paths are stony).
For you: Tick off one of the area's most beautiful local landmarks; St Enodoc Church, discover the picturesque St Enodoc Golf Course, take in views of the Camel Estuary from the South West Coast Path and enjoy Daymer Bay beach.
For your dog: Sand dunes to explore, the beach to run on and the sea to splash in.
Highlights: St Enodoc Church, one of the most picture perfect churches in Cornwall and the resting place of Poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman. From the church you can enjoy beautiful views across the golf course and out to sea.
Lead? If there are golfers on the golf course you may want to put your dog on a lead if they are likely to chase balls! There are a couple of areas along the coast path that run close to the cliff edge, so dogs might need to be put on a lead for these sections.
Parking: Private car park. Winter tariffs start from £1 for one hour and summer tariffs start from £3.50 for up to three hours.
Pack: Your camera to capture the sights and change for the car park. Walking boots aren't necessary.
