The sale of Trevose Head

View of Trevose from the west

We have some exciting news, thanks to gifts left in Wills and generous donations, the National Trust have had an offer accepted to buy the famous stretch of coast, Trevose Head. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to protect and manage this beautiful headland for wildlife to flourish and people to enjoy.

Looking after Trevose Head

Our aim is to raise £250,000 to help protect and care for the headland for ever.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to permanently protect this headland for people and wildlife, we are now asking supporters to help us raise money for ongoing care and protection of the headland.

The money raised will go directly to supporting the rich and diverse wildlife through habitat management and maintaining and improving footpaths and access for everyone. 

The plan  

We will safeguard the ownership of Trevose Head, preserve the view and guarantee access to this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by:
  • Protecting Trevose Head for people and wildlife, keeping this iconic coastal view for people to enjoy for generations to come
  • Undertaking bio-surveys to understand the current coastal wildlife and habitats that call Trevose Head home
  • Managing these habitats to create an environment in which  coastal wildlife can flourish 
  • Caring and repairing footpaths and fencing so that everybody can enjoy the wide scoping views 
 
With your support, Trevose Head could become one of North Cornwall’s most easily accessible and significant sites to see coastal species from grey seals to choughs and peregrines
 
It costs the National Trust £3,000 to look after each mile of coast each year totalling a cost of £1million pounds just to manage the existing coastline in the South West and ensure access is maintained.
 
Now that we will also have Trevose Head to care for, our aim is to raise the funds to help start the work needed to protect this area for people and wildlife for ever.

With thanks

It is thanks to the generosity of people who have left gifts to the National Trust in their Wills, that the Trust was able to commit significant funds towards the purchase of Trevose Head.
 
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, thank you. 
" This is a beautiful place, a true jewel on the North Cornwall coast. We have a great opportunity to ensure this piece of coastline is a fantastic place for both nature and people forever"
