Beach Road

Rousdon Estate


There are many beautiful walks in this area of East Devon – the south coast path runs through the Undercliff on the south side of the estate and whilst quite strenuous – if you are fit it is definitely worth the effort. You can walk to Lyme or to Axmouth – Rousdon Estate is about mid way between – and you can reach the south coast path from the road down to the beach.

Cliff walks are well signposted all along the coast – from Beer to Branscombe is another favourite. Also go and visit the donkey sanctuary near Salcombe Regis – there are some great walks on Dunscombe Cliffs at the back where there is over 6 miles of uninterrupted coastal walks between Beer and Sidmouth, much of it on National Trust land – beware of steep hills!!

Heading East into Dorset – Stonebarrow forms the start of a stunning coastal walk which takes you over Golden Cap and some seriously good views from the highest point on Britain’s south coast. Start from the far side of Charmouth – drive up the hill and park over the other side of the cattle grid.
