From the car park take the track until it joins the coast path, then turn right. You're now walking along Revelstoke Drive (also known as Nine Mile). Looking east you'll see the Gunrow signal station, while directly below you is Blackstone Point, a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Continue west along the path, enjoying views over Wembury Bay towards Plymouth Sound, and pass through two gates beside Warren Cottage. Once the home of the Membland Estate warrener, it was later rebuilt as a summerhouse and luncheon stop for carriage parties; Lord Revelstoke entertained the future King Edward VII here. If you want to explore secluded Warren beach, and perhaps spot a seal, take the steep path on the left after the second gate (recommended for agile walkers only), otherwise stay on the coast path.
