What you'll do

Starting from Gorran Haven with a short cross country walk to join the Coast Path above Hemmick beach, then walk on rugged terrain round the archaeologically interesting cliff castle at Dodman Point. Returning above the stunning Vault beach to the harbour at Gorran Haven for the end of this 4 mile hike. CEREAL BAR provided, included in experience.

Other things to note
We have ample time to walk at the pace of the slowest group member and take photos of scenery, flora and fauna.
We explore a headland, but there are no alarming drops, scrambling, etc - just walking.

Where you'll be

We will climb gradually out of the village via a small wooded valley, crossing farmland as we head for the prominent headland of Dodman Point. We'll walk a short circular route around the cliff fort, adjacent to the Iron Age earthworks which formed its major defence. Leaving the huge stone cross which marks the headland for shipping, we continue on the South West Coast Path above Vault Beach and gently descend to the village once again.

Lucy is an experienced guide, and we enjoyed an educational and very interesting walk with her. She made us very welcome and was very informative on all aspects of our time together.
