Gunwalloe Cove

Gunwalloe sketch and paints

I haven’t been to Gunwalloe Cove for a little while. It used to be a favourite spot when my children were little and I thought it was high time I re-visited it!

The day was sunny and plenty of people were on the beach, so just perfect for me to sit at the top of the cliff and do a quick sketch. Mind it wasn’t easy sitting amongst the long grass, lucky there weren’t any adders around! My ideal way to spend an afternoon!

Gunwalloe Beach is a popular spot for families, with its gently sloping beach sheltered by the nearby cliffs. Gunwalloe Church is also “the Church on the beach”, although now sheltered from the elements with various trees and bushes, which was also used in the recent Poldark series.

The cliff path takes you over to Poldhu Cove, and that is well worth the walk and one I do quite frequently. Gunwalloe Cove has a National Trust car park, as well as toilets and a cafe, so it is a good starting point.
