Pronounced “Poth tee” but sharing the P-Celt and phonetic resonance of Cornwall’s Poldhu Cove on the Lizard Peninsula, this bay and beach are backed by a wooded ravine, known as Bishopston Valley. The location is a mile and a half from Bishopston village, where there is parking and the beach is shingle. I recommend approaching via the attractive Brandy Cove on the coast path to the east. This is a fine getaway beach. The setting is far from the holiday crowds and it’s an ideal spot for bird watching and an appreciation of the natural environment and its wildlife. Highly recommended.
Steve’s appreciation of “a getaway from the built landscape”.
