Walking in Devon

There are plenty of great spots for walking in South Devon, but listed below are a few of our favourites:

East Prawle (Circular Walk)

Leave your car on the village green at East Prawle (the narrow lanes down to the National Trust car park are very narrow and get very busy in the summer months with visitors). Then follow the signs to Gammon Head and walk around the coast back to East Prawle. A great circular walk stopping by the coastguard's lookout and you can even have a pub lunch in the Pigs Nose on your return to East Prawle.

Start Point to Pear Point (Circular Walk)

If you’re looking to spot some seals on your trip to South Devon, this section of coast is a particularly popular hang out. From the car park, if you follow the path down to the lighthouse , then walk over the cliff and head down to Pear Tree Point. Here you may be able to spot a seal or two bathing on the rocks. 

Overbecks to Bolt Tail (Circular Walk)

Park your car at Overbecks in Salcombe before strolling around the cliff face around bolt tail. Overlooking the stunning Salcombe Estuary, this circular walk is a must when visiting South Devon. You can even enjoy the gardens of Overbecks and have a cup of tea when you’re finished. 

Loddiswell to Avon Mill

If you fancy a change of scenery from all of the beaches and blustery coastlines, why not take a stroll through the woods at Loddiswell and amble along beside the River Avon.
