Walk - Westward Ho! to Cornborough Cliffs
1.5 miles (2.5 km)
Westward Ho! - EX39 1JS Westward Ho!
Easy - This 1 mile long section of old railway line has been improved to make it possible for the elderly, very young and wheelchair users to experience this scenic part of the Coast Path.
An easy walk from the outskirts of Westward Ho! along an old railway line to a viewing point on Cornborough Cliffs offering spectacular views across Bideford Bay towards Clovelly and Hartland Point. A good walk in spring, when the sea breezes whip the waves into white horses, seabirds nest among clumps of pink thrift on cliff ledges and stonechats call from bushes laden with blossom. Also good in autumn, when the noisy migrant birds start gathering in the bushes, ready to leave, and the gorse and heather are vivid in the heathland.
