This 6 mile walk on the South West Coast path takes in wonderful countryside, wooded creeks and stunning coastal views.There is a wealth of historical and literary interest as well as plenty of opportunities for refreshments. Add two short ferry rides to make a great day out.

Have done this many times and love the views around the bays. A well marked and simple walk with a couple of ferries required and a pub at either end

This is a lovely walk, mainly through forest, giving great views of the river. There are some steep steps and parts can get muddy in the Winter. Plenty of seats along the way.
