No facilities here. The nearest refreshments are at Coombe Farm tea room.

Sat nav PL23 1HW

From the Newtown roundabout on the outskirts of Fowey, follow the B3145 and then
immediately take the first right onto a narrow lane to Coombe. After nearly a mile (1.1km) there is a small National Trust car park.

Near the car park entrance follow the track down past the farm. After 220 yards (200m) you come to a stile in the hedge on your right. Cross the stile onto the path which leads you down the valley. After about a quarter of a mile (380m) the path meets the coast path above Coombe Hawne beach.

If you prefer, you can walk along the coast path from Readymoney Cove, passing St Catherine's Castle walk on the way. The walk is just over half a mile (1km).
