Brilliant walk on the beach and up the steps to the fort and along the headland. Views from the top are amazing. Would go again and again

Scenic walk with lovely coastal views. Extremely disappointing Cafe, not up to the usual National Trust standard.

If you are going to the beach then you drive down into the beach and park, we paid £3 there are steps if you wish to climb up, I didn't as I don't like heights!

Doesn't mention on board if NT members pay or not so can't be sure. Charges are £3.50 for all day. There is no hourly rate
