About
This 3.2 mile route on the South West Coast Path travels through a long wooded valley to The Torrs, a rugged area also known as 'The Seven Hills' with tremendous views across the Bristol Channel. Any walk around the town features steep gradients, but the magnificent cliff scenery towering above the picturesque harbour makes it worth the effort.

A short walk on Thursday 03rd November 2022 from the National Trust Car Park on the Upper Torrs. The paths along the cliff and along the main paths are not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. There is a toposcope at the signposted viewing point. The ground was quite muddy so wear decent footwear. You can continue onwards towards lee if you wish or loop back down to the car park.

This is such a beautiful part of the coastal path.
Highly recommended.
Dramatic jagged coastline and hidden beaches.
Stop in The Grampis in Lee for lunch at the halfway point between Ilfracombe and Woolacombe.

We took a bus ride to Morthoe and decided to walk the coastal path to ilfracombe approximately 9 miles we took about 3 hours and experienced some breathtaking views.

The walk is stunning and not for the feint hearted. I am afraid of heights and had to be coaxed by my husband along two points with sheer drops and no barricades. But that’s just me I’m glad I walked the path and would do it again. We seen many people along our route all saying the climb is worth it. And it was.

If you have poor mobility and don’t like open spaces this isn’t for you.

But the beautiful Exmoor coastline was well worth the walk.

Probably even better in the sun. When I ran to Lee, it was misty and drizzly with lots of low cloud. I really liked the climb out of Ilfracombe, and the view from the viewpoint the first time I ran (a shorter run) was lovely

Excellent views from the torrs at far end of ilfracombe from the harbour. Both the torrs and hillsborough ends have places that require careful walking to navigate and is steep in places. Should be no issue if relatively fit.

We followed the signs for the coastal path out of Ilfracombe but they suddenly disappeared. We ended up walking the main road until we picked it up again in a small car park. The walk was very picturesque.

Walk from Ilfracombe to Lee along coastal walk. Hard word climbing the cliffs and then through fields and down into Lee. Took about one and a half hours. Worth the walk for a pint Ilfracombe cider at the Grumpus Inn.
