Daymer Bay

Just 2 miles from our luxury catered and self-catering holiday cottages at Mesmear, near the village of Rock, is Trebetherick which includes the beautiful expanse of sand that is Daymer Bay – one of the jewels in North Cornwall’s crown.


Daymer bay and Cassock are in the mouth of the Camel estuary and unlike Polzeath has very little in the way of surf…but it is an excellent spot for swimming, windsurfing, boating or canoeing. This wide sandy beach is very sheltered and at high tide you can walk out in to the sea for quite a way before it comes up to your waist. Daymer is an ideal location for families with youngsters to spend the day. It also offers some stunning walks for those of you who don’t care for the water.


To the right of Daymer Bay you will find loads of rock pools and the small beach known as Greenaways, it is a small beach usable only at lower tides.  To the left of Daymer Bay is Braey Hill,  which is well worth climbing for the superb views that it affords of Hawkers cove, the Doom Bar and Stepper Point (sleeping Dragon).  At the foot of Braey Hill and behind the dunes of Daymer lies St Enodoc Church (The last resting place of Sir John Betjemen “poet laureate”).


Further to the left, across the St Enodoc golf course or via the beach, when the tide is low, you will find Rock.


As all of our cottages are on one private and secluded site it means that The Mill, The Barn, The Calf’s House, The Tractor Shed, all share the convenience of being so close to Daymer Bay.
