Visited this lovely cove on a very stormy day in December and it was fantastic. The waves were so churned up that they made froth that blew around like snow. There's a stream running down to the sea in the middle of the beach that...More

Easy access from parking lot; walked down with a 94yo. Church is full of history and interesting quirks and artifacts. The graveyard has been dug madly by badgers, have never seen this anywhere else! The beaches are lovely, unspoilt, full view of endless waves breaking...More

We picked blackberries on our way to the beach. There was a really nice church and cottages on the way. The weather was lovely and sunny. Lovely views from the beach, a great relaxing afternoon. Fab.

Doesn't get much better than this, one of those beaches that enables you to sit and relax for hours on end, without any form of disturbance. Parking is easy and the roads accessing the beach aren't of any concern. Would highly recommend.
