Beautiful beach, miles of sandunes….to get lost in…..we did on our way back from the beach to the car park. Beach clean and virtually empty, dog friendly and huge especially when the tide is out.

Loved it. So wonderful to see the entire area looked after so well. Nature and modernisation go hand in hand, golfing with sheep and horses! The sea and the views were magnificent. Do bring a waterproof jacket that keeps the blustery wind out and water to wash your feet if you're planning to head to the beach for a stroll.

Great country park just North of Westward Ho! Free parking and also close to the beach (just got to tackle the large pebble barrier thing!)The country park also has a visitor centre in case you need to refresh, lots of options in terms of directions to walk off – just be careful of the golf balls!!

Stunning beauty!Free to park, easy access to beautiful walls and the beach was very quiet (April Easter).We wandered across the stones onto the sandy beach where we could let the dogs run free. The 4 year old and puppy both loved it in equal measure.

This was a lovely visit, we got coffee from the cafe and went and sat on a bench overlooking the golf course and beach. The views were amazing.
