Located between Weston Woods and the National Trust headland at Sandpoint, the amenities here are quite sparse, apart from a few food outlets and a car park, making it the perfect walkers paradise full of wildlife and a calm, peaceful atmosphere.
Situated on the Devon/Somerset border on the Exmoor Coast is the deserted beach known as Glenthorne.
Glenthorne Beach was once part of a country estate, of which still lies a ruined boathouse, a trout pool and some old lime kilns. There are natural interest features such as a small waterfall, caves and geologically important rock formations, but the shoreline itself can be hard work.

The beach is backed by farmland, facing into the Bristol Channel with views across to Wales.
