The wildflower meadows on West Pentire provide an amazing display of colourful, summer flowers. Traditionally, corn fields would have contained wildflowers such as poppies and corn marigolds but nowadays it is rare to see such a beautiful natural display. West Pentire and the surrounding coastline (Crantock, Porth Joke and Holywell Bay) is managed by the National Trust.
