About this walk

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed a few hours walking along the rocky beach with our bouncy dog Kenzie... plenty of room to run about and quite a few rock pools to nose in. The beach itself is covered in rocks; from pebbles to boulders... slightly tricky with very young children but my 5 (nearly 6yrs old) had a fantastic time clambering around. Pushchairs and wheel chairs have easy access from car park to beach front and a small ramp down to the beach and also to the café; which sells all kinds of reasonably priced refreshments - try the honeycomb ice-cream mmmmmm. Other visitors had brought their own gazebo and set up their own little area in the fields adjoining the car park (brought their own bunting too !) and seemed to be having a lovely old time cooking on their bbq and celebrating someone's birthday!

Definitely worth a visit and we will definitely be returning soon.

    Not a bad walk although there are signs everywhere to say that dogs are not allowed on the beach between May - Sept (although there were loads, I didn't want to risk it), so we went along the grass trail which looked lovely and ran alongside the river. There is an information board about the trail which I checked first but there wasn't a great deal of information on there and certainly no mention of there being horses loose in the field or birds of prey being exercised. As I know my dogs can be very reactive around other animals and love a chase I would have either kept them on the lead or found somewhere else to walk them. The dogs were having a whale of a time jumping in and out of the river etc. but as soon as they saw the horses it drove my dogs nuts, I managed to get one dog back on the lead but the other just kept chasing and baking at them as she was completely freaked out! A lady then had a go at me and my daughter saying that we were irresponsible and my dogs shouldn’t be off their lead around horses but to be honest if I’d have known they were there I wouldn’t have let the dogs off. Not sure I'll venture back here.... A lovely day out spoiled unfortunately by lack of information.

    Firstly, thank you to the author of the walk, Rhiannon79, for adding it to Walkiees and to Sheldancer for your follow up comments. I have added the "Animals on Route" to the 'Location Features' above. Unfortunately sometimes we can have hugely different experiences of walk areas. We encourage users to add as much information as possible here at Walkiees, but sometimes people take different routes, or experience different things, it's really not possible to account for every eventuality. That's where the comments section can play a part. It's great to hear about people's experiences, good or bad. The more feedback we can offer on a walk, the better informed we can all be.
