Cornwall�s north coast: from the river Camel north to Bude and on to Morwenstow and the highest cliffs in the West Country, it is a mixture of great cliffs and beaches. Walking (coast path) and bird-friendly cliffs (usually no road near): peregrines possible. Great sand/surf beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith, Widemouth Bay, Bude and Sandy Mouth; sandy coves at Port Gaverne, Bossiney, Crackington Haven, Duckpool, and others less accessible; Rock, also sandy, is the place for watersports, including sailing on the Camel estuary; very fine golf course (St Enodoc); mini-fjords at Port Quin and Boscastle. Port Isaac is very pretty round its cliff-enclosed harbour.
The well-worth-riding Camel Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows the river Camel from Bodmin Moor to Padstow. Pencarrow is a beautiful house with wonderful garden. Tintagel has a ruined castle (King Arthur�s?) on a wild headland. St Juliot church was restored by Thomas Hardy and �a pair of blue eyes� nearly fell down a Crackington cliff. Bodmin Moor, its highest hills quite mountainous, is only a little way inland and Blisland, on its northern edge, is one of Cornwall�s prettiest villages - makes a change from sea: so does lovely Lanhydrock (see Cornwall�s �Med�). Not far to Eden (see South Cornwall).
Edmonton: hamlet of former stone quarrymen�s cottages (no working quarry near now), excellent family good food pub. Little-used lane runs one mile down to the Camel estuary (birdwatching) and Camel Trail (cycleway). Wadebridge, 2 miles; Padstow, 6; the splendid Trevose peninsula beaches, 7� miles; Camel Valley vineyard (tours, tastings), 8. Excellent golf, walking, watersports and riding nearby.
