“Dramatic, Stunning Cliff Top Scenery”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Views were spectacular and well worth the sometimes steep climb to the top of Bolt Head. Take your time, make regular stops watch the boats plying back and forth and enjoy the views unfolding beneath.

“From North Sands”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Up to Overbecks and up over to Sharp Tor. Combe back along the coast path which gives great views of the harbour and is fun walking around the cliff. Young kids need controlling!

“Lovely Walk”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Quite a long hike, but with excellent views and beaches. Definitely worth it! Only concern was that the trail did not have any signposts, and the start was marked as private land.
