How to find us

The approach to the Lookout is from the A379 Kingsbridge ‐ Dartmouth road. If you're travelling East from Kingsbridge, turn right in the centre of the village of Frogmore and cross the bridge over the head of Frogmore Creek. The route from there to East Prawle is well signposted.

If you're travelling West from the Dartmouth direction, you will drive along beside Slapton Ley and soon afterwards reach the village of Stokenham. Turn left at the mini roundabout (Carehouse Cross) and as above, follow signs to the village of East Prawle.

When you arrive in East Prawle keep the village green on your left and continue down a no-through lane, which ends with a National Trust car park on the left. Now for a bit of exercise! Climb over the stile from the car park and continue downhill until you reach the SW Coast Path from where you can see the Lookout on the headland to your right ‐ and the path leading to it.

After leaving the A379, allow 20 to 25 minutes to reach the car park and another 10 to walk up to the Lookout.

If using a sat nav, enter our postcode, but please park in the National Trust car park near the end of the lane and do not drive beyond.
