Wilderness Coast - Itinerary 7

Combe Martin and the highest sea cliff in England and Wales


From the seaside village of Combe Martin, take the thigh-burning walk up the Coast Path towards Little Hangman on the 4.7 mile (7.5km) Hangman Hills walk. Views along the coast reveal themselves as you gain elevation towards the Great Hangman, which, at 244 metres (800 feet) is the highest sea cliff in England and Wales. Take a few minutes to catch your breath, then continue along the loop back to Combe Martin.


Relax with a cream tea in Combe Martin. You’ve earned it. Combe Martin is a popular holiday destination with no shortage of places to eat, drink and shop. But the beach and coastal scenery is the biggest draw. A great way to experience this is to hire a kayak or stand up paddle board at the beach or take a guided kayak tour to see the soaring sea cliffs from the water.
