Walk - Westcombe & Wonwell

5.7 miles (9.2 km)

Parish Church of St James, Kingston - TG7 4QE Parish Curch of St James, Kingston

Challenging - Coastal path, footpaths and bridleways, can be muddy. Quiet roads inland. Some steep ups and downs.

A walk along high clifftops, above a rocky coastline where the surf washes around stacks and islets and runs in channels between the seaweed-clad rocks on the small sandy beaches. Ravens wheel overhead and oystercatchers pipe as they patrol the tideline. The clifftop grasslands are full of butterflies in summer, and in the woodlands above the Erme estuary the trees are festooned with lichen. A good walk in springtime when the woods are carpeted with bluebells and wild garlic, as well as primroses and celandines.

This walk is particularly good for dogs as it passes a beach and pub where dogs are welcome. Have a look at our Top Dog Walks on the South West Coast Path for more dog friendly beaches and pubs.
