Dog walking at Pentire & the Rumps
This great walk primarily uses the south west coast path between Polzeath and the Pentireglaze lead mines car park where I normally start. From the car park I normally walk toward the Rumps first. The path takes you to the cliffs where there is an amazing view of the Atlantic. One the way to the Rumps there are many steep hills and valleys that you have to traverse to get to the Rumps which is where an old iron age fort once stood and is a great place to explore and enjoy the view.
The next landmark along the path is Pentire point which is popular with other dog walkers, here you can see from Tintagel to Trevose headland. When you make your way back towards Polzeath be sure to stop at Cowrie cove, this is an unmarked cove with a small pebble beach great for washing off dogs and for a family picnic. I love coming here for doggy day care with a handful of towels and some tennis balls!
