Walked from Ilfracombe to Combe Martin which had a lot of uphills but beautiful scenery. Took us 2.5 hours. Had a few drinks in the village and then got the bus back. Really enjoyable.

Combined the coastal path with some beach hopping and bouldering in the coves. Beautiful views and coves. Recommend this walk and try to end up at the Grampus Inn at Lee for lunch.
