11 people attending
4 places left
Breakfast at the The Donkey Sanctuary followed by a walk down to the beach and along the cliffs.
Breakfast is optional, just arrive a little later if you will not be joining us for breakfast.
The Donkey Sanctuary offer a great cooked breakfast and you can watch the Donkeys while you eat.
Following breakfast we will meet at the entrance to The Donkey Sanctuary before we head towards Branscombe along country lanes and cliff top paths.
Branscombe is a beautiful village and famous for being the longest village in England and the shipwreck of the MSC Napoli, which saw hundreds plunder beached goods including motorcycles. After a huge storm hit in January 2007 the vessel which was carrying over 2,300 containers was severely damaged and was beached at Branscombe.
There will be time to stop for an Ice Cream before we loop round through the village and head back along the cliff top back along the coastal path to Weston Mouth beach. We will stop for a swim at the clothing optional beach!
Finishing back up the hill at the The Donkey Sanctuary we can end the walk by exploring the Sanctuary, maybe get lost in the maze and enjoy the garden.
