We walked from Seaton to Branscombe and took the undercliff path after leaving Beer. It was absolutely beautiful, you walk through a little forest and get the most stunning views of the cliffs. My favourite walk. We stopped for coffee at Branscombe at a lovely...More

We walked from Seaton to Beer then onto Bransombe. The Seaton to Beer part is not great as a fair bit has been lost due to landslip so you end up walking alongside the road but from Beer to Branscombe is excellent for views. We...More

We attempted the SW Coast Path on the recommendation of locals who said it was the only way to appreciate the sublime coastal views. We started off at Beer beach in the hope of getting to Branscombe, 2 miles away, within the hour. We managed...More
