- Sheep’s Head, also known as Muntervary, is the headland at the end of the Sheep’s Head peninsula situated between Bantry Bay and Dunmanus Bay in County Cork. The peninsula is popular with walkers, and the Sheep’s Head Way is an 88 km long-distance trail which follows old tracks and roads around the peninsula from Bantry to the headland and back. The trail is divided into eight stages, each representing a half-day’s walking, and is very accessible, well signposted and combines low and rugged hills with coastline and cliffs.

Offers full day or part day Cycle Hire with kit for all ages and includes children and dog trailers. You are advised to pre-book at the height of the summer season.
- Climping and Littlehampton West Beach is an undeveloped, largely undiscovered section of West Sussex and one of the strategic rural gaps. Arun District Council has a guided walk of 4.5 miles perfect if you are in the area and want to get away from it all for a couple of hours. Alternatively, grab an OS explorer series 121 – Arundel and Pulborough map and just plan your own route or just park and explore. This is a pebble beach backed by sand dunes and is a Site of Nature Conservation (SNCI ) because of the important vegetated shingle habitat, a great place for wildlife: Oystercatchers, Mermaid’s Purse, Sea Kayle, Yellow Horned-Poppy, Ringed Plover, Common Lizards. The sand dunes area of the beach are a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and are part of the West Beach Local Nature Reserve. The Littlehampton end of the dunes has been fenced to protect some rare plants which are sensitive to trampling. There are areas of unfenced dunes closer to Climping. This stretch of the coast has two points of parking, Climping Beach and Littlehampton West Beach, but the guided walk starts at West Beach. In the summer although the beach is never busy the Climping car park is a lot bigger than the Littlehampton end although you can park in Littlehampton itself and cross the Arun river by bridge. You have a cafe and toilets at both ends, Littlehampton West beach cafe and the Climping cafe.
