Busy summer days at Godrevy

busy car park at Godrevy

Everyone loves to head for the coast on blue sky days and the car parks at Godrevy can get full pretty quickly. When you're planning your days out, why not think of other ways to get to the coast to save all those frustrating hours sitting in queues?

In the summer months the local bus runs past the entrance to Godrevy and is a good option if you want to avoid the frustrations of finding a parking space, just at the point when the rest of the world has the same idea.

Other parking near by

There are also a number of smaller car parks just up the road on the North Cliffs where you can leave the car and take in the magnificent scenery around Hell's Mouth and the Knavocks before heading down to the beach, or along to the café. It's also only a short walk from the village of Gwithian, on foot you can head for the South West Coast Path by taking the path near the campsite which leads over the dunes and around the lagoon and over the Red River.

Plan your day

To make the most of your day we recommend you plan your day in advance and get there early. There is delicious food in Godrevy café, which you'll need to be prepared to queue up to get and an ice cream van up in the grass car park area in the summer months. So you might choose to pack up a picnic giving you the freedom to enjoy your day at your own pace. Toilet facilities are limited too, so bear this in mind. We work hard to keep these facilities clean and tidy and encourage everyone to respect them and please don't put your rubbish in the bins here, but take it away with you, keeping Godrevy the wonderful and wild site that it is.

The local car park and ranger team work hard to care for the site so that it's a pleasant place for people to visit as well as remembering the inhabitants who live here all year round. Look carefully and you'll see a whole world of butterflies, insects, birds and small creatures. With this in mind we ask everyone to leave the site as they hope to find it, full of good memories and no litter.
