Ilsham Valley, Devon


  • Located in Torquay, Devon, South West England, England
  • Tor Bay arcs from the Torquay area in the north of the bay down to the Brixham area in the south. Near Torquay, where the coast juts out into the sea at Hope's Nose, is Ilsham Valley. There are two popular beaches at either end of the valley. Meadfoot Beach is to the south. Anstey's Cove is to the north. Between is the popular and fascinating Kents Cavern. Photographed is a local information board outlining a good circular walk that takes in Ilsham Valley and connects with the South West Coast Path to take you out to Thatcher Point and Hope's Nose. The views across Tor Bay are exceptional on a clear day
