Visited on Monday 30th April, we were staying nearby and could see cars and campervans driving along here so went to investigate. We were rewarded with great views along the coast.

This place is absolutely stunning. The gates are open from 11am till 3pm monday - Friday. Amazing view from the top. It can be walked at any time during the day and driven during open gate times. You can bring your pets.

Controversial subject this! Who wants to walk only, drive only, or SHARE . I would personally like to share as it is a beautiful spot to visit, and if you have people with you unable to walk, they can still enjoy it.

This is a long road along the coast which has been closed off to traffic, so it's perfect for bikes, pushchairs, tricycles, etc. It's about 2km each way (I think!) and offers a lovely view down onto the beach and back across town. The road...More
