Devon Coast

Walk Devon’s coastline and inland green landscapes with a Foot Trail.

With the soothing sound of the sea never far away, your trails will ensure you see tucked away beaches and coves,  hear tales of shipwrecks, boats and fishing.  If you are lucky you may see seals on the rocks. Discover watery seascapes in muted blues, greys and browns and after a day filled with fresh salty air tuck into local food and drink at a Devon country pub.

Devon’s south hams bring a nautical air to your choice of Foot Trails. From coves to beaches, rivers to the sea. Walk in an area with a rich water based history and taste wonderful fresh foods including fish and crab, not to mention some of the best fish and chips.

  • Enjoy coastal views with land and sea
  • Smell the sea air
  • Take a boat ride or jump aboard a steam train
  • Taste a wealth of delicious fresh foods including local crab, fish, wine, fish and chips and of course Devon cream teas with scones, cream and jam. Yum!
  • Explore a variety of different landscapes and places including Dorset villages with white plaster cottages, sandy beaches and coves, fresh water rivers, salty marshes and coastal towns and villages

“Once again you have organised a wonderful 12 days of walking. We loved the coastal walks in Devon, inspiring and breathtaking in their ruggedness. The rolling hills and forest walks in Dorset combined with sunny Fall days were a wonderful contrast. All best”
