The Park

This is Britain’s only Coastal National Park with, as its jewel, 186 miles of spectacular coastal footpath. It is a stunning landscape of rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, wooded estuaries and wild inland hills, and a place of sanctuary for wildlife.

People belong here too. They have shaped the landscape over the centuries, leaving their mark in tombs and castles, crosses and cottages, quarries and quays. Today this is a living, working landscape where people and nature co-exist.

It boasts:-

  • Unspoilt sandy beaches
  • Hidden coves and wide estuaries
  • Spectacular cliffs and quaint harbours
  • Rocky hillsides and lush valleys
  • Open heather moorlands
  • Ancient woodlands & rich meadows
  • Abundant wildlife and flowers
  • Ancient monuments & cultural heritage
  • And much more
