Took a detour to visit this beach but nothing too special. The rock pools provided initial excitement but unfortunately there were no sea life specimens within them.

It doesn't have a postcode as such, because there is no property on it but Pot-a-Doodle Do is just along the road from it and their postcode is TD15 2RJ
