After reading not so great reviews for Clovelly, decided instead to take a look at Bucks Mill - great decision as it turned out. There is a smallish car park (height restriction) which filled up pretty quick so get there early would be my advice....More

Loved the beach, excellent for rockpooling. Strange car park though, it has a very narrow entrance, too small for my normal sized people carrier. We took the cliff path in the end, very steep climb back up but good fun. No facilities at all, apart...More

We had a glorious walk down from Northway to Peppercombe beach on the South West path. A steep but well marked path takes you down from Northway (there is a pub at Horns Cross which could make a good starting point). Most of the path...More
