The RSPCA was alerted to the calf at St Mawes by a caller and an officer from the animal charity arrived with the Falmouth lifeboat crew.
The animal had managed to get through broken fencing and fall down a steep embankment and become stranded as the tide came in.
Jo Barr from the RSPCA said the calf was "very shocked and scared but ok".
