Babbacombe to Thatchers point.

Off to Torquay for our 1st time tomorrow. The bit of coast from Babbacombe down to Thatchers point via Ansteys' Cove looks interesting. Would like to explore this stretch but which way would we do it so as the walk was easiest? Bus to Babbacombe then walk to Thatchers Point or should we start at Thatchers point and walk to Babacombe?

Probably Babbacombe to Thatcher Point is easier, as the predominant direction is downward.

There is no bus service at Thatcher Point - how do you propose to get from there?

Yeah. Did wonder about that. Is it then going to be an uphill climb back to a bus route? How much would a taxi be into Torquay? Think we're are going to get the £5 day rider tickets for buses that i've seen mentioned so just need to be back on a bus route really.

From Thatcher Point you could continue around Ilsham Marine Drive until you get to Ilsham Road, then follow it inland until you get to Wellswood - buses 22 and 122 stop on the main road by St Matthias Church. It's about a mile or so and only the last bit into Wellswood is uphill.

There is also a bus from Meadfoot Sea Road just past the far end of Meadfoot Beach, the 64, but it only runs hourly (and not on Sunday) and is not operated by Stagecoach so doesn't accept the Torbay Dayriders.
