You park in a car park then it is a long walk up the side f a road (between fields & possibly uphill) to a golf course

You walk across the golf course to some lowish cliffs where you can see a seal sanctuary (maybe or just seals?)

Does anyone know where it is?

There are seals at Gibralter Point on the Lincolnshire coast.

Hmm, I don't think we went to lincolnshire when I was little

I guess it will have been North Wales or Cornwall/Devon

But I really don't remember well

Daimer Bay / Rock beach in Cornwall. It has the carpark, long walk, golf course, cliffs, no sanctuary but I think there are supposed to be seals there?

There's a seal sanctuary at Gweek, nr Helford in Cornwall. HTH

seal sanctuary at Gweek as mentioned, but not sure there is a golf course/cliffs near by? hmm I will go take a look.

Thank Moondog - that is the place

& it's where we are going on holiday

Wow - that's beautiful, Moondog

I was thinking of the walk towards Fistral beach/The Headland hotel in Newquay - you park, walk through a golf course & then you see the low cliffs, but the seal sanctuary is at Gweek. Mind you, if it's a while since you went there, the seal sanctuary may have moved premises.

LOL, presume you not booked yet then, Katymac?

Or was it just a quiz for us?

smile

moondog Wed 24-Jun-09 19:24:28

It's lovely.
Have a good time. smile

Rindercella Wed 24-Jun-09 19:25:20

Hang on...it must have been a quiz for us! smile. You surely know whether you are going to Cornwall or North Wales for your holiday??! <confused>

Rindercella Wed 24-Jun-09 19:25:57

Hope you have a lovely time though smile

Katymac Wed 24-Jun-09 19:26:24

I've booked (next village over) - But DH & I were arguing over where the seals where - he thought Cornwall/devon; I was convinced the Lleyn peninsular

I was right but I never would have found it

If you take a trip to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island) you are more or less guaranteed seals.

Ooh - you can go to the Ty Coch and watch the sunset. Beautiful.

We stayed in the grey house in the very middle of that picture. Was stunning. House really really basic, but who cares when the views are so stunning.

Katymac Wed 24-Jun-09 19:41:32

We won't be going to Bardsey Island.......£70 for 4 of us!!!shock

That looks a lovely (if chilly) house (esp in winter)
