South West Coast Path - Woodhuish and Mansands, Dog-friendly Walk

A short but steep circuit over high cliffs with spectacular views, dropping to the tiny shingle beach at Man Sands where the sea is being allowed to flood the reclaimed pastureland, creating a brackish lagoon where grass snakes are sometimes seen swimming with their heads out of the water, and many different birds come in to feed and to roost. The inland route follows ancient green lanes once used by farmers, fishermen and smugglers, and older children able to manage the steep hills will love the sense of adventure this walk brings. Wear good footwear, because the paths can be very wet and muddy.
Difficulty: moderate
Length: 3.5 miles

Visit the South West Coast Path website for full walk details.
