Surely if you walk 15 minutes south of the airfield at Bolt Head, you end up in the sea?
Paul it probably depends where you start from and which track you choose. East Soar Farm (Experience) is well signposted from the car park outside the airfield perimeter at the threshold of 11, but the direct route for flyers is through the airfield gate at threshold 29, then along the road (track) south towards the sea, you *have* to pass through the farm that way and it really is only about 5 minutes away. Self service family /walkers cafe with toilets, tea and home made cakes, you do your own washing up and leave an honesty payment. Try this postcode for location TQ7 3DR, also check where NT Overbecks is to the east (out of the 29 threshold airfield gate and immediate left through the field gate following path across to the east, just keep going ignoring other paths off left and right, walking (straight) down into the woods from the second field long, you should then pick up signpost to Overbecks.
PS Soar Mill Hotel is to the west of the airfield and you need to walk out along the airfield vehicle access to the road, then find your way along the lanes or across the field footpaths. Slightly more difficult to find as it is completely invisible until you get there owing to being flat roofed and set well down in the valley road to the beach. If you take off on 29 then make a gentle left turn, you will fly over the hotel just before passing over the cliffs /beach cove.
