About
A short and easy 2.7 mile walk on the South West Coast Path out to the tip of Baggy Point and back again, taking in spectacular views of the coastline towards Bideford Bay and Hartland. Children will love the whale bones and the old wreck post, as well as the rocks and cliffs. A gently sloping walk out to Baggy Point and back. An alternative route back includes a short steep climb.

The path is indeed very wide and well maintained and suitable for push chairs/wheel chairs.
We parked up at the National Trust carpark, which is very expensive if you go during the day, but only a £1 if you go after 5pm. And the path will be significantly quieter during the evening.
I loved the rocks, cliff views and some stunning properties to envy and admire. We also watched some rock climbers climb the awe inspiring slabs with sea waves crashing at the bottom beneath them.
If you make it over the hill at the peak of the point, you can enjoy the view of Woolacombe Bay.

Definitely a recommended walk if you are in the Croyde Bay area. It doesn't take too long and the views are absolutely gorgeous. Wouldn't recommend if you have a pushchair or wheelchair as the pathway is quite narrow with steep hills to the edge.

The views are fantastic, fresh sea air and scenery well worth the effort of getting there. It’s not an arduous or intensive walk to get to the point from the National Trust carpark, however not suitable for children in buggies, or wheelchair access. Narrow and steep paths lead you to Baggy Point, which allow you to see over to Wales and Lundy Island. Sea birds line the ancient coastline and rolling green fields with cattle cover the inland. A small fee or donation is required at the carpark, with toilets. A small cafe and surf shop is on your way to the point for refreshments. If you’re in North Devon, you won’t be disappointed.

Had a terrible experience at baggy point, unfortunately I lost my dog who fell to her death from the cliff edge 🙁.

Costal guards found her who had to use jet skis , and I was told My dog was the 4th dog that week who had died falling from the cliff edge. (How many die over a year???!!! 🙁)

Something really needs to be done about this, there are no danger warning signs up, there should be barriers or something there to prevent dogs going close to the cliff edge’s.

Animals (dogs) become part of the family, their a massive part of your life, and trying to explain to your children your family pet has gone to doggie heaven is so heartbreaking!!!

So please, if you intended to take a baggy point costal walk with your dog/dogs please keep them on the lead, you’ll understand why as you take the walk.

As NT members we use our guide book to see where to go whilst on holiday, and discover amazing places. This Car Park is in a great location and volunteers (as ever) so very helpful. It was a sunny day but very windy and I was very grateful to the N.T. chap who suggested a quiet corner where we`d be in the sun and out of the wind and enjoy uninterrupted views of the sea. We sat for ages peacefully enjoying the fresh salty air.

The description of this walk is grossly inaccurate. The path in parts is very narrow, rocky and uneven with sheer drops. I attempted the walk today ( having read the description of the walk), with my 10 month old in a buggy together with a friend and her four year old daughter. It was a very anxiety provoking half hour before I had to turn back due to struggling to negotiate the narrow, steep path. I would be extremely concerned about very young children running freely along the path with such sheer drops onto cliffs below. In the current climate there is absolutely no opportunity for social distancing with just a few benches on route and no passing places whilst runners desperately try and get past you. Please note also that in my opinion this is most definitely not wheelchair accessible and should not be detailed as such. Anybody with even limited mobility would find this walk a challenge. Lovely views but for me not worth it.

We parked in the National Trust car park and took the coastal walk to Baggy Point coming back on the inland walk. The wind was very breezy and as i don't really like heights I was glad to come to the end of the coastal walk at Baggy Point and walk back on the other path.
The views are stunning and very photographic.

Great walk; not too busy (went in peak of August); as usual a friendly NT assistant at the car park; relatively easy with our two kids of nine and twelve.
Two options to get to from Croyde NT parking; one over a couple of hills, the other a coast path by the cliff, we looped round over the hills and back through the coastal path. Personally I would not have done the walk by the cliff on wet or windy weather, but on a fine day it's worth doing. We spent almost two hours, but can probably be done in half that time, we took out time exploring down some rocks and taking pictures of kestrels.

We parked at the NT car park in Croyde Bay, and visited Sandleigh Tea Room and Garden which are conveniently located by the coast path, and after a coffee set out around the Baggy.
The path is mostly only gently sloping, but it is narrow and the outward leg is along the side of the point with the sea to the left.
On this visit after reaching the point we continued around the headland with great views into Woolacombe Bay. We had a cup of tea from Putsborough Beach Shop, and our return walk took us back over the top of the Baggy and along footpaths across fields and along old green lanes. There was still time for a paddle and swim on a fabulous day out.

This is a good walk with some nice scenery round the coast. The walk we did was a circular one though one can do a longer walk between the two villages which means the walk is some 4 miles long. This is a national trust property so all is well signposted. Recommend a good pair of walking boots.
