Access at Trevose Head

Trevose Head is already a popular place for people to go walking, running or to simply enjoy the unspoilt views of north Cornwall. Once we become custodians of this stretch of coast, our promise is to maintain and promote the access across the headland for people to enjoy for ever.

Our ranger team will maintain and repair the footpaths for generations to come, helping people explore this famous headland.

There is 2.3 miles of coast at Trevose to protect and 1.6 miles of coast path to maintain and look after for ever.

A much loved site

Trevose Head is loved by hundreds of people who visit it, and it is thanks to the generosity of people who have left gifts to the National Trust in their Wills, the Trust was able to commit significant funds towards the purchase and protection of the headland.

The main contributions are from very generous legacies from Mr & Mrs Harris of Maidenhead, specifically left for any future purchase of Trevose Head and a legacy from Mr Trevor Scholes left specifically for a coastal acquisition.

We will care for this headland in their memory.

The campaign

We’ve launched a campaign to raise £250,000 to help towards the care and protection of this north Cornish headland.

It costs the National Trust £3,000 to look after 1 mile of coast a year.

At Trevose Head we will need to start work repairing gates, foots-paths and the car park to make sure this area is still open for all to enjoy.

As a conservation charity we already care for 152miles of Cornish coastline for wildlife and people and we couldn’t do this without generous donations, our members or volunteers.
