Directions

    1. Leave the car park, follow the path signposted down to Froward Point. The path takes you through the World War 2 military site. If you want to visit the information centre, it is near the National Coastwatch Lookout.
    2. At the bottom of the site, follow the South West Coast Path to the right, signed Brixham 8¾ miles, towards Outer Froward Point. As you follow the path around the headland. you get great views of the Mewstone out to sea.
    3. Follow the coast path on to the edges of Pudcombe Cove. Here the route heads inland, it is steep in places.
    4. Follow the footpath inland (this section is steep in places), until you reach Brownstone Road. If you want to make a detour to Coleton Fishacre or Coleton Camp, turn right here, before returning to make your way back.
    5. Take the field edge path to the left to reach Brownstone car park.
