With a commandeering vista over Porthcurnick Beach it's more off the beaten track than hidden. Only therefor late morning coffee and cake but both were excellent and staff very friendly. Sadly had no time for lunch but the specials of the day smelt gorgeous.

We also took our older dog and parked at the bottom of road and walked across the beach which would be better than walking from car park just before portscatho.

Hi, you can park on the top road car park and walk down through a field (a signed public footpath) to the Hidden Hut.

I've just had a look on Google Maps and a ferry to Place Creek, followed by the walk along the South West Coast Path (via the tip of St Anthony Head) is apparently 7.1 miles or 2 hours, 20 minutes.
