Walking

East Devon Way - a beautiful 40 mile walk from Exmouth to Lyme Regis through the heart of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A new walker's guidebook is available with easy to follow walk directions, lots of photos and wildlife information. Planning an East Devon Way holiday couldn't be easier with our new website showing places to eat, sleep and drink along the way.

A series of five downloadable short walks are detailed in our Discover the East Devon AONB leaflet.

1- Beer Head

2- Ladram Bay

3- Mutters Moor

4- Branscombe

5- Trinity Hill

South West Coast Path - This acorn marked path passes through East Devon and takes you along the Jurassic Coast where you will literally walk through time, as the rocks record an extraordinary 185 million years of the Earth's history.  Villages and seaside towns are dotted at convenient locations along the route, some of which are served by public transport. The varied geology provides changing landscapes and spectacular scenery throughout your journey.

Walk This Way - is a scheme that has been introduced in East Devon to encourage people of all ages including those with health and mobility problems, and those recovering from illness, to walk for their health. These walks are led by qualified volunteer walk leaders, who have undergone the National Walking for Health training, as well as training in First Aid & Resuscitation. These walks are a mixture of town and country walks and are aimed at those who are doing very little or no exercise at the moment, but who would like to become more active. The walks are between 1 and 3 miles, and are graded for difficulty.

The Otter Valley Situated between Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth, the beautiful Otter Valley supports a diverse range of wildlife with numerous species often seen along walking routes.  Visit the Otter Valley Association website for suggested routes.

Pebblebed Heaths East Devon Pebblebed Heaths lie on ancient geological formations called pebblebeds, which were deposited in the Triassic Age when a large river wound through what was then a desert area.  The heathlands support a diverse range of flora and become a stunning haze of purple in August when the heather is in full flower.  Some rare bird species, such as the Dartford Warbler and Nightjar are also found on the heaths.  For more information and to request 'A Walker's Guide' visit the Pebblebed Heaths Conservation Trust.
