Devon Beach Guide

Soar Mill Cove Beach

South Devon.
Soar Mill Cove is a narrow sandy cove on the South Devon coast. There is plenty of sand at low tide but little sand at high tide and there are no facilities. The nearest car park is a 30 minute walk on the coast path.
Risk of getting cut off at high tide. See Beach Safety Guide.
The coast path is steep in places. Final access to the beach is via a short sloping path.
Dogs allowed all year.
Soar Mill Cove is approximately a one mile coast path walk from the Bolberry Down car park, which is about 2-3 miles from the village of Malborough in South Devon. Malborough is approximately 21 miles from Plymouth. Take the A379 from Plymouth into south Devon. About a mile after Aveton Gifford, at the Bantham Cross roundabout go straight across onto the B3197. Alternatively approaching from the Totnes direction, take the A381 and A379 until you reach the Bantham Cross roundabout (shortly after Churchstow) and turn onto the B3197. After a short distance on the B3197, turn right onto the A381 and follow this road for several miles until Malborough. At Malborough turn right (signposted to Soar and Bolberry) and drive through the village past the church and follow this road out of the village for about a mile, then turn right (signposted to Bolberry). Approaching Bolberry village, turn left (signposted to Bolberry Down) and follow this road to the National Trust car park.
