In part four of the series, Marketing Manager Katy and her dappled Dachshund Luna share their favourite dog walks.
A medium length, circular walk starting at the Pentire Farm car park and taking you across beautiful National Trust farmland and onto the South West Coast Path. Enjoy breathtaking views from Pentire Point out to sea and towards Polzeath and discover the little beach of Pentire Haven.
Location: Pentire Farm near New Polzeath, a five-minute drive from Polzeath and ten-minutes from Rock (grid reference SW936802, nearest postcode PL27 6UQ).
Distance: 2.1 miles.
Time: 1.5 to 2 hours (including time to take in the scenery).
Difficulty: moderate (some of the paths are steep and stony).
For you: tick off one of the area's most beautiful local landmarks; Pentire Point and take in the breathtaking panoramic views from the top taking in Stepper Point, the Camel Estuary and Polzeath. Time it right in the evening and there are some fantastic places to stop and take in the famous Polzeath sunset.
For your dog: lush green fields to run in (providing they are free of livestock) and inland sections of footpaths to safely explore.
Lead? if there is livestock on the land, dogs are required to be under close control or on a lead. Please close all gates behind you. Dogs will also need to be kept on the lead for the section of coast path that runs close to the cliff.
Parking: small National Trust car park with a donation box.
Pack: your binoculars for wildlife spotting, wellies in the winter months as the footpath can get muddy (walking shoes or trainers in the summer), warm clothes if you are doing the walk in the evening and some refreshments to enjoy on the way round.
