Summerhouse Point (Penry Bay)

[Skip to Content]
Summerhouse Point

The beach at Summerhouse Point consists almost entirely of rock and pebbles, with only minuscule amounts of sand showing at low tide. It is backed by unstable cliffs of blue lias and looks out across the Bristol Channel to Minehead (straight across) and Porlock Bay to the right.

Mill Road leads from the village of Llantwit Major towards Summerhouse Point, and deteriorates to a track for the last ½ mile. At the far end on the right is a small secluded parking area (Grid Ref: SS993666), from where a footpath leads through a small wood to the coastal path, passing the overgrown ramparts of Summerhouse Camp - an ancient promontory fort. Following the coast path eastwards will lead you down to the shore at Penry Bay, where the coast path continues along the back of the beach.
