Wembury wander

Just a short evening walk from the NT car park at Wembury, mainly heading west towards the Mewstone along the good coastal path. This is nothing more than a change of scenery for me, to get in some coastal sea views rather than the normal moorland that I get most weeks. Don’t worry I’ll be…

On the coastal path around Bolt Head

I’d seen a walk in one of the walking magazines about a good loop around Bolt Head, near to Salcombe. The distance was around 9 miles and involved walking the coastal path from Overbecks (National Trust) to Hope Cove, involving plenty of plunging views down to the sea below. Now I wasn’t expecting to see…

Coastal walk around Wembury from home

Time for something different as it is the Easter weekend. I had to be home for lunch at 1.30pm so decided to remove any driving on to Dartmoor from the equation which would only shorten any walk. I hadn’t walked the South West Coastal path for quite a while now and it doesn’t take long…

Pre Christmas wander at Heybrook Bay

This isn’t a long walk, but looking back this is one I’ve done a few times with the boys. Its very easy (apart from the steps at the start!!) and the boys love the old swimming pool part down by the sea, overlooking The Mewstone. This was just a quick walk, with bad weather forecast…

Warren Point walk

Something different today, the weather on the moors hasn’t been the best this week and doesn’t look like changing for a fair few more days at least. Strong winds, low cloud and lots of drizzle seem to be the order of the day. However today the weather on the coast was forecast to be dry…

Bigbury Beach

Time for something a little different, this was my last day on holiday before heading back to work the next day. I’d not been to Bigbury for a while and whilst the car park charges are steep its a good place for a little walk, especially across to Burgh Island. The tide was just about…

Boys, beach and BBQ

Slightly different from the norm for me, no Dartmoor, no tors and no bogs this time. Instead it was a trip after work with a BBQ to the beach to catch the teatime sunshine and have a some fun. We headed for Wembury Point, mainly because its quieter than Wembury beach itself but also so…
