This walk was a bit of a challenge the day after Storm Hannah, extremely windy between WP4 and WP5 may have been better doing it in reverse but great views. Look out for Seals bobbing around in the shallow water. Several trees down in the woods blocking paths and there is a small diversion in place along the coast path which takes you up to Slade and back down again. Lots of Wild Garlic and Bluebells in the woods, very pretty. Taking into account the other comments we ignored WP8 and went from 7 to 9 directly up the road, very easy. At Penrice the path is a little obscure when you reach the ruined barn but stay left and you don't gone down the side of the building, the path is not too obvious but it is there.

Unfortunately nothing has changed since the comment last year. Certain parts are very muddy and you need a machete to work your way along the path. I couldn't in all honesty recommend that anyone try this route in its present state

Good walk until you turn off the road just after WP7, the path turns into mud up to your ankles and the bushes are overgrown so having to duck down a lot for most of the way to beggars pit. I would suggest carrying on up the road at WP7 then taking the track to WP9 at T junction. This would have made the walk much better as the mud path was horrendous and was a real struggle

Fantastic walk and great views along the coastline. Pretty exhausting by the end but lovely varied scenery along the route. Great walk for dogs but very muddy in places.
