An easy start on the grassy cliff path along the back of the beaches from Bude to Widemouth Bay should not mislead into imaging the whole day will be a breeze! The path will soon proves challenging as it becomes rough and narrow in places and plunges into steep valleys. This includes Scrade valley which is one of the deepest and steepest valleys on the Cornwall section of the Coast Path. This walk provides you with wide, open views of the Atlantic from high cliff top paths. The strong winds and sheer force of the sea will keep you on your toes but please be careful. The Coombe Barton at Crackington Haven provides a welcome resting place at the end of this leg serving real ale and food.
