A clue before I turn in, it is on the south-west coast.

I've been struggling with this one. I initially started with the Downderry area in Cornwall but decided it had to be Devon. It's not somewhere I've been.

Blackpool Sands near Dartmouth could be a candidate but I cannot make a match.

Is Scabbaombe too far?

Have to go. A difficult one - have been trying to follow the coast on the satellite.

I've been to Blackpool Sands and unless my memory is faulty it doesn't look like the postcard.

The problem is that quite a bit of that coastline has changed due to coastal erosion. I'm not sure about Beesands but that is looking at present day mapping. To get the cliff it would need to be closer to Torcross and past Widdicombe Ley.
