Beach Head Bunkhouse offers basic accommodation with fantastic views out to sea and along the north Cornish coast to Trevose Head. Only 1.5 miles from the beach at Porthcothan and located close to the South West Coast path, it is the perfect base for family holidays and walking groups alike. Within easy driving distance of Padstow and close to the iconic Bedruthan Steps. Perfect for walkers, surfers, families (though not those with very young children due to external stairs and stair rails), extended family groups, activity and educational groups. A large open plan sitting and dining area, with wood burning stove, cosy sofas and chairs for guests and a large dining table with bench seats, is on the ground floor. Off this is a well equipped large kitchen. Access to the shower rooms, w.c.'s and drying room with a washing machine is outside. Two dormitories and two single rooms are on the first floor accessed by an external staircase. Outside there is an unenclosed grassed area with stunning sea views over the Cornish hedges with wooden benches and a fixed brick barbecue. No stag/hen groups please.

Barbecues at Beach Head Bunkhouse

July 13th 2019

A National Trust bunkhouse, set on the sparkling coast on Cornwall, within three miles of the NCN.

Beach Head Bunkhouse’s barbecue area over looks the vibrant green and blues of the Cornwall coast, however inside the bunkhouse is a fully equipped guest kitchen, so you have a large range of catering options, including eating out locally!

We also have a communal swimming area… the sea! It’s not quite a private pool… it’s even better. A secluded cove, typical of Cornwall, awaits you a short distance away, where you can relax to the serene sound of the sea’s waves, and after a dip, you can dry your gear in our drying room, wash your clothes with our washing machine, and finish off with a nice warm shower!

Our bunkhouse is groups only accommodation, however we have a range of rooms available from mixed dormitories, to single sex dormitories, to private rooms.
