Directions:
Stoke Beach is about 12 miles from Plymouth. From the Plymouth direction cross the Laira Bridge on the A379 and follow the A379 to Yealmpton. Alternatively from South Devon take the A379 west to Yealmpton. At Yealmpton turn south onto the B3186 which is signposted to Newton Ferrers (4 miles) and Noss Mayo (5 miles). Follow this road to Newton Ferrers. At Newton Ferrers, after the shops on the right, turn left (signposted to Bridgend, Noss Mayo and Stoke Beach) and follow this road down to Bridgend and then up to Noss Mayo. At Noss Mayo take a left turning signposted to Stoke Beach. Continue on this road out of Noss Mayo into countryide and continue on this road until it reaches a left bend and opposite the bend there is a small lane again signposted to Stoke Beach. Follow this lane down to the Stoke Beach car park. Alternatively instead of taking the lane opposite the bend, turn right and follow this road until it reaches the National Trust Stoke Point car park. Park here and take a path across the field which joins the coast path. It takes about 30-40 minutes from the Stoke Point car park to Stoke Beach.
