Had a number of walks around Bossington with our wider family and children (6 and 8) and an amazing time was had by all. The views, beach and World War 2 pill boxes kept everyone occupied. Toilets at the car park are a bonus.

Hi - yes this is a nice scenic walk, with great views across Porlock Bay. On our website - look under 'Walk the path' - Family walks and you'll find lots of other walk ideas.
