Strangles Beach lies below High Cliff on the north coast of Cornwall between Boscastle and Crackington Haven. West facing the beach consists of fine golden sand and rocky outcrops.
The beach is accessed by a path just north of Trevigue Farm leading down the shore.
Trevigue is a beautiful 16th century farmhouse set in 600 acres of stunning North Cornish cliff land. Mentioned in the Domesday book and steeped in history, Trevigue is a fantastic place to spend your precious holidays whether its bed and breakfast in the farmhouse or self-catering in the coastal Cornish cottage. Trevigue farm, owned by the National trust and farmed by the Crocker family since 1976, is the perfect place to get away from it all and take in the peace and tranquility of some of Cornwall’s finest countryside.
Other points of interest are Little Strand, Voter Run and the Northern Door Arch. Further to the north lies Cambeak with its striking shape and strata before the coast path turns eastwards passing Tremoutha Haven on its way to Crackington Haven.
