Daddyhole Plain is a limestone plateau some 75 metres above the sea. Daddy is an old Devon name for the Devil, and according to local legend, the Devil lived in a cave at the foot of the cliff, formed when a large chunk of limestone fell into the sea, creating ‘Daddyhole’.
Daddyhole used to be a quarry, which has now been eroded somewhat by the sea. There are interesting ledges on the beach below that contain fossilised corals.
