A lovely walk with plenty of good coastal views and varied interest. The route is very muddy underfoot in places and can get very overgrown in summer, there are two steep eroded sections on the way down to the Bed and care is needed with children because of the steep cliffs nearby.


The walk mainly follows waymarked paths and unmarked tracks across, often very muddy, farmland. The descent to the beach and cave is steep and very eroded and can get overgrown in summer. Livestock in fields on route so dogs must be kept under tight control.
