It is well worth the climb to the top of The Torrs, as the views are stunning on all sides. You don't need to return down to the town, by the same route so it is a good circular walk

This place is amazing. The views are spectacular and so tranquil. If you are searching for a coastal walk with gazing views and nature close by then you won't go far wrong in Ilfracombe. Just stunning. There are also plenty of places to eat. Great for all who like to walk in the bay or have a play on the sand. Relaxing, charming and will visit again.

We decided to do the Torrs walk on what was predicted to be an overcast day, but the weather was glorious and added to the experience. This walk is not for the faint hearted as there are lots of steep areas that will test your breathing. What I would add is there are places to rest and take photographs of the stunning views in front of you and making the effort to climb to the top was well worth it. Tip, wear sensible footwear, I am amazed at people who do this walk in flip flops!

A great walk from Combe Martin to ilfracombe. Many covered wooded paths if steep in places. Mouth watering views in the sunshine. Well worth doing if hard work in the sun. Widmouth definitely worth a visit 😊👀

What's not generally publicised enough are the safety guidelines for these walks; this needs changing. Perhaps local tourist offices and government should be publishing safety guides for the uninitiated. It is not just a casual stroll by any means. But you can find details on the southwestcoastpath website. This walk is lovely but not for the faint of heart. You need to be reasonably fit, properly attired and well equipped for this coastal path. And try to be off the path before dark. We're out on the coastal path every day on holiday: Combe Martin - Watermouth- Hele Bay - Ilfracombe and beyond. And back again. Beware of the A39 which is downright dangerous for pedestrians. We take loads of water, and food for energy. Truly stunning views on this path and plenty of photo opportunities. This area is known for dodgy phone signals or just no signal at all in some places, so we carry two different cell networks. Plan before you go. Tell somewhere where you're going and when you expect to be back.
