This walk is great because the chalk paths and grassy rides mean it stays relatively mud-free, even in periods of very wet weather. However, uneven surfaces make it generally unsuitable for pushchairs. 

Route:

1) From the bottom of the car park, take the path which descends gently downhill, providing stunning views all the way to the beach.

2) On your return, pass the Coastguards cottages and at the fork in the path, turn left, following the cliff edge. Stay on this path until you reach Hope Gap (marked with an information board and steps down to the beach).

3) At this point, turn right, following the grassy ride back uphill to the car park.

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on the lead when walking along the cliff edge.
