Beautiful part of the South West Coast Path between Lynton and Combe Martin. Quite a big diversion inland to get around the Mouth but stunning even on a rainy day.

This walk is very invigorating. It’s a bit uneven and stony underfoot, but it is well worth the effort, for the most beautiful scenery and views.

Enter a different world in stunning Exmoor with breathtaking views. The coastal walk is steep but well worth the effort. For a less challenging walk stroll along the river to Heddons Mouth and enjoy the views and fresh air.

This is a great way to view the coast line. Not too challenging, rocky at times with some gentle slopes. Great views. Trust store with souvenirs and ice cream in the valley afterwards. Hunter's Inn for adult beverage and pub snacks also.
