Maidencombe Beach

The coastal farm land and woodland around the village of Maidencombe has changed very little over time with the thatched cottages and a pub being a picturesque feature of the village.  After a short walk from the car park the path opens up over a delightful little cove, surrounded by red sandstone cliffs.  Well within reach of Torquay. Good access to the coastal paths giving excellent views of the rugged coastline. Lots of rock pools at low tide.
