Going Coastal – Devon

Going Coastal – Devon

Following on from my post about the Cornish Coast the other day, we also spent time exploring the South Devon coastline too. Our first sight of the Devon coast (apart from when we took the train to Exeter) was at the end of the day we’d spent exploring the towns of Dartmouth and Totnes. From my teenage years holidaying in this area, I remembered the coast around here well and remembered that the stretch of coast from the Dart to the Kingsbridge Estuary has a coast road famed for it’s stunning views. As my husband hadn’t been on this road before and the late afternoon sun was shining, we decided to take the long way back to the campsite and take in the stunning views.

Going Coastal – Cornwall

Whilst on holiday in May we took the opportunity to explore the wonderful coastline of the South West. Our first taste of the beauty of the coastline was in the town of Marazion when we visited St. Michael’s Mount (post here) and then again the next day when we went to the Minack Theatre (again, post here).

Our first full day on the coast was the following day, where we decided to try and take in 3 coastal spots in one day, as part of a trip down memory lane for my husband and a day of exploration for myself. Our first stop of the day was the tiny village of Sennen and Sennen Cove. This beautiful little village and gorgeous bit of coastline is almost at the very bottom tip of Cornwall and that’s exactly why we went there. Unlike the crowded and busy car parks at near by Lands End, Sennen is a peaceful alternative only a mile or so around the bay. By no means unknown, it’s a well worn path between the two, this was a great alternative to the extortionate prices of going to Lands End itself and you’re able to walk the coast path to the famous landmark instead, which is exactly what we did.
