Mr Treasure April 2017

If you visit at high tide, there's a good spot along the sea wall to jump off and go for a swim. At low tide the 'cabbage patch' of rocks appear, a great spot for rock pooling and exploring, but shoes are advised!

This small village has a playground, football field and garden. The restaurant has a small bar and is dog friendly.

Off The Rails (5 ½ miles)

The original station was transformed into a restaurant in 2014 and is now open for lunch and dinner throughout the year. This is a popular spot for walkers and cyclists and dogs are made very welcome. Give them a call for opening times before you go as they don't open every day during off season months.

Fantastic meal and a nice location for a bit of birdwatching

We had some great burgers and a delicious roast duck leg with a savoury waffle (loved the sauce too!) What a great location! Shame it was too cold for us to explore the wetlands and foreshore, however still managed to spot a few interesting birds on the way back to the town centre. Dogs are welcome too, which is a bonus, and they can even sample some "doggy treats"
