Hi Folks,

I'm off to Holsworthy (near bude) for a week soon, so can anyone recommend good landscape photography locations for me to visit?

Hello Chris,
You could go along the North Devon border to Clovelly, it's unique, or along the North Cornwall coast which I think is wonderful (I'm biased, because I live there!) Try the cliff path walk from Port Isaac to Port Quin, the views are fantastic, especially if you catch a sunset there. Or, go onto Bodmin Moor, try the walk to Roughtor. If I can help with directions etc just let me know. Have a great trip,

hi chris
try st necterns glen between Boscastle and Tintagel on the coast road, also very near it is Rocky valley , both are marked on the os survey maps, even tintagel castloe is worth a shot especially with storms brewing
but necterns glen is really special a waterfall over a slate cliff, then comes out horzintal through a round hole in rock then down into another fall, also the raggy trees at the base with offereings are often worth a shot
in rocky valley theres an ancient maze carved into rocks

Go to Hartland Quay were you will get a good pint, and some dramatic views and a sunset in the right conditions that could not be matched anywhere else in the world.

Boscastle, Tintagel, port isaac and the surrounding coastline rank as my favorite locations ever ... There is also a wind farm nearby which make for a great backdrop ... Dartmoor has some very interesting abandoned mine workings with no attempt to keep the public out and The preserved railway at Launceston (the fetish capital of Britain) is very photographer friendly ...

Hi Chris
Thanks for your comment on my cannon ball man. I have just found your note about staying at Holsworthy. I teach at Camelford and my wife,Anne, works at Cookworthy Forest centre just down the road from Holsworthy. The centre is open to the public and has an information centre. The forest has some great wildlife including red deer and nightjar.

There are some fantastic cliff formations at Millook between Boscastle and Widemouth bay. The views along the coast both North and South are superb from a viewpoint above Millook on the road to Widemouth. Millook was used as the set for several films.

Golitha Falls Just North of Liskeard where the river drops over the granite provides some lovely walks and locations. Lanhydrock just south of Bodmin is worth a visit, the river at the bottom of the estate also has some lovely locations. I have put some pictures onto the site from these locations. The "Shag in a Storm" is at Millook.

If you are into Otters there is the Tamar Otter Sanctuary about 8 miles south of Holsworthy. The Tamar Otter Sanctuary is situated at North Petherwin, 5 miles N.W. of Launceston off the B3254 road to Bude, Cornwall.

Best wishes
Dave Smith
