  • Description

Brean Down is a scenic coastal walk with a seemingly endless 3-mile beach to explore, where dogs are welcome all year round. Take care on the sand further out when the tide is out, as it is like quicksand.

After strolling along the beach, walk to the fort for gorgeous views, but please keep dogs on lead here as there are sheer dangerous cliff edges. However, the lower path was fine for off-lead walking.

The National Trust cafe has some hearty grub, with pasties and sausage rolls. No dogs allowed in the cafe but plenty of covered seating outside that is dog friendly. Plenty of National Trust parking here too.

Brean Down
North Somerset


3 car parks to choose from. You can park on the beach all day for £3.00 but please take note of the high tide times. Cars are allowed on the northern section of the beach and there is a no-vehicle area beyond the wooden posts. Other car parks are pay and display and reasonably priced.

Paws for thought

Cliff edges are steep and dangerous - keep dogs on lead when needed
