This circular walk near Coleton Fishacre leads from Woodhuish Farm to Man Sands beach and back via the South West Coast Path. It takes in a wetland area perfect for bird watching, rugged coastline, a secluded beach and even a Victorian cider press.

When nature and wildlife can move freely between habitats, they flourish. Without this freedom, they suffer. Our coastal ambition is to join up the coastline, working with partners to make a link around the coast so wildlife can prosper.
