This is close to Godrevy Lighthouse. You have to be quiet at Mutton Cove because the seals go there to have their young. It's a very beautiful place to walk, and then continue on past the lighthouse. Not to be missed.

We were lucky enough to see a family of seals in the cove. An adult and three young pups. They are so well camouflaged with the rocks it was tricky to spot them until they moved. We stayed a few minutes watching until the seals...More

We visited Mutton Cove again to watch the seals while on holiday in Cornwall. You can get very good views of them by looking down from the cliff edge close to the South West Coastal Path. It is very important to keep a low profile...More
