We are so lucky to be situated on the South West Coast Path in North Devon’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We have walkers stay all the time who have set the challenge to do the whole of the path over a few years and gradually complete the whole 630 Miles from Minehead to Poole. We have even had a couple of walkers stay who are doing the whole path over a 6 week stint !
If you would like to sample just a little of the path you can head over Hillsborough Nature Reserve to Hele and have a Devon Cream Tea as reward at the Old Cornmill or do the 5 mile coastal walk to Combe Martin or the 7 mile coastal walk in the other direction to Woolacombe – both walks are absolutely stunning, a bit up and down but as I say “Over every hill is another stunning view” . With both of these walks you can walk there and get the bus back to Ilfracombe.
We have a few books of short circular walks in North Devon and Exmoor and we are more than happy to lend you the book or do a copy of the walk for you. Many of them we have tried, being keen walkers ourselves, so we can certainly recommend some walks for you
