    The highlights come thick-and-fast along this picturesque, unspoiled, and leisurely stage of the South West Coast Path.

    Beginning with an awe-inspiring view over Port Isaac from Lobber Point, to the serene yet ghostly village of Port Quin, onto the impressive sea cave of Lundy Hole, to the Iron Age fort of Rumps Point, and onto the golden sands of Polzeath Beach and Daymer Bay—the final stage of this Collection is one to remember.

    After a challenging hike to Polzeath, crossing valleys and winding around weathered headlands, the rest of the hike to the ferry crossing is easygoing.

    Catching the ferry from Rock across the river Camel to Padstow is a real treat, too. And once you reach Padstow, a jewel on the Cornish coastline, you will find the charming fishing town is rich in history and heritage and has lots to see and experience.

    Padstow has a good range of accommodation and places to eat and drink, as well as shops and other attractions.

    The Padstow ferry runs every 20 minutes between Padstow and Rock. The ferry departs from one of two points in Padstow depending on the tides. Tickets cost £4 for adults, £2 for children, and £1 for dogs. For more information visit padstow-harbour.co.uk/phc_ferry.html.
