Hartland Circular Walk at Hartland Point
From the car park above the Hartland Quay hotel, follow the Coast Path sign to Spekes Mill along a fairly wide path. Views of the spectacular rock formations and black finger like reefs exposed at low tide, provide a fantastic start to the walk, especially when contrasted with banks of pink thrift, sheeps bit and yellow birdsfoot trefoil present in late spring and early summer.
The path takes you around the headland towards St Catherine’s Tor, a prominence that is believed to have had a Roman Villa or chapel on top, although this may well have fallen into the sea along with much of the Tor. As you follow the path which runs upstream behind the Tor, take a moment to look at the waterfall tumbling to the beach below.
