  • South West Coast Path - Bolberry Down, Dog-friendly Walk

    Bolberry Down has a network of paths running along high cliff tops with great views, providing a choice of walks of varying lengths.
    This section of coast is relatively flat and the National Trust have undertaken work to ensure that a network of paths can be used by people in wheelchairs, or with buggies.

    Difficulty: easy   Length: 1.7 miles

  • Hope Cove, Bolt Tail & Bolberry Down

    A walk from the thatched village of Outer Hope, past the sandy beach at Hope Cove, whose deadly rock fringes have wrecked many a ship, and on around the high headland of Bolt Tail, where the plunging cliffs once formed the seaward defences of a prehistoric promontory fort. Out in the bay smugglers once dropped brandy kegs to the seabed for the fishermen to retrieve along with their crab creels and lobster pots, and 140 sixteenth-century Spanish sailors escaped with their lives when they were ransomed instead of being executed. In summer kestrels and peregrine hunt above the flower-filled coastal grasslands, and the inland green lanes are fragrant with honeysuckle.

    Dogs are allowed (on leads) in Hope Cove.

  • Wembury strandline walk

    With wonderful views across the sea and to the Great Mewstone, the walk is a great opportunity to investigate the strandline for a glimpse into the hidden treasures of the sea.  This section of coast is part of a Voluntary Marine Conservation Area and is internationally known for its rich diversity of marine life. Delve into the shallow waters of the rockpools and see what you can find.
