The area is designated
as an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ with magnificent
cliff scenery. Ideally suited for walking and an excellent base for exploring
the most rugged and spectacular piece of coastline in the whole of the
South West of England.
We have many places of
interest to visit locally, apart from the coastline - Please click on
