When leaving the car park, turn right and take the coastal path, walking with the sea on your left and the white bench pictured to your right.
Continue down the path until it opens out on the right.
The field is a great place to exercise dogs as it is fairly large, with soft, short grass for running, areas of long grass for hiding games and plenty of bins.
Take the path around the field, this is a gravel track and therefore a little more uneven than the main path which is smooth paved and wide.
For the longer route, take the path around the field, turning left at the benches to walk down the long side.
At the end, to take the longer route, look for a path on the right, in the corner of the field.
Follow this path straight ahead through the woods, make sure you keep an eye out for the road ahead and keep your dogs close or on lead.
When you get to the road, safely cross over into the woods on the other side.
Once in the woods you can take a right to explore more, there is Jurd’s Lake and the butterfly meadows, for the Promenade loop take a left.
You will walk through a variety of foliage so keep an eye out for butterflies and other wildlife.
When the path forks, take the left path.
Follow this path towards a car park.
Safely take the path through the car park and across the road before turning right.
Follow the path towards the sailing club pictured above.
Once you have passed the sailing club go through these bollards and back onto the paved promenade path.
Walk back along the promenade and enjoy the views!
Follow the path back to the car park with the sea on your right, or you could head back onto the field for more playtime.
