This is a great walk but you need a reasonable level of fitness, some good footwear and the ability to climb hills. You will be rewarded with some fabulous scenery and the knowledge that you have burnt off enough calories to treat yourself to a mahoosive cream tea or a big fat piece of cake.

You may want to take a picnic and make a day of it. The route I have suggested is around 5.5 miles in total. If you add in walking down to Hopes Nose that’s almost an extra mile. I have suggested places where you can peel off and head back for home if you want a shorter walk. Depending on the time of year you could see wonderful wild flowers and, if you are lucky, the odd Peregrine Falcon or seal. If you like swimming you could take a towel and aim for a refreshing dip at Anstey’s Cove or Meadfoot Beach.

This is the view through the pines towards Meadfoot Beach:

Detour for confident walkers only: There is a circular walk which leads down a steep path to Hopes Nose: https://goo.gl/maps/2GwnLqYVpqwwbtzh7 Taking this path could add as much as a mile to your walk. You will find some amazing geological rock formations, wild birds, possibly seals and a lot of grumpy fishermen.

In the Summer months you will find a nice little café and sun loungers, paddleboards and canoes for hire.
