Horseley Cove is situated on the South Devon coast to the east of Salcombe but west of Start Point.
Horseley Cove is one of Devon's lesser known beaches and consists of sand and rocks. Quite a large beach it lies near East Prawle village. Southeast-facing, the beach is accessed via a half mile (1 km) walk from the village where parking and the usual facilities are to be found. There are no facilities at Horseley Cove.
The path to Horseley Cove can be quite steep in places so please bear this in mind if wishing to visit.
The beach is relatively level and a number of rock pools appear at low tide to occupy younger members of your group.
For ramblers there are good walks south and west over Langerstone Point to Prawle Point and northeast passing the coves of Lannacombe Bay and Great Mattiscombe to Start Point and Start Bay.
