Hot Air Balloon Flight from Exeter

2 reviews
Devon’s green hills, rugged coast, and windswept beaches are among England’s most beautiful, but the most spectacular views are from above. Float overhead on a 1-hour hot air balloon ride, watch the sunrise or sunset over Devon, then celebrate with a champagne toast.

Definitely worth a visit to see and walk over a medieval bridge, lovely walk, circuit with one way system to ensure social distancing etc, or more experienced walkers can go “off piste”. We opted to follow the arrows also the River Barle, most enjoyable

With Covid restrictions recommending one way traffic across Tarr Steps completing the hour or so round trip alongside the river and back was something that we'd probably not have done otherwise but it was very worthwhile. In the main the path is on the level so no-one need be afraid of completing this walk. You can then end with refreshment at the Tarr Farm Inn and Restaurant.

We visited Tarr Steps today-what a gorgeous place! I think I went there years ago on a school trip but can barely remember it so was delighted to see this lovely place again today! I am intrigued as to the story behind the coins buried deep within the tree stumps though- please can anybody enlighten me as I couldn't find any information about this anywhere on the Tourist Boards! I did try my best to bury a coin for luck in one of the tree stumps but it looks as though they have all been "grown in" to the bark over a long time. I only wish we'd found this lovely place much earlier in the day as we didn't arrive until around 4pm + we had the weather slightly against us-would have loved to have stayed there for much longer!

Peaceful spot revisited after far too long an absence. Thereis now a car park and an information point up the hill which is fine if you are doing the circular walk but a bit expensive if you are just going bown to the steps and back up. Now being partially disabled we felt justified in driving down and briefly using one of the parking places provided at the bottom.Go early or late for maximum peace at this lovely spot.

Can't believe we have never been here before. Beautiful walk along the river observing the one way system for social distancing. Car park was very busy and people were parked everywhere but the actual steps and walk weren't over run by people at all
