There are a number of public footpaths that connect Nansledan with Newquay. The only right of way that traverses Nansledan is from St Columb Minor in the north to Quintrell Downs in the South.
Residents and visitors to Nansledan are politely reminded there is no footpath right of way to Trewollack Farm and nearby cottages at Trewollack. These lie to the east of Nansledan on the other side of Quintrell Road. There have been occasional instances of people walking their dogs and children playing in the area, but it is private property accessed by a private farm road.
