Overview
More
This moderate 2.8 mile walk starts from Salcombe Hill, high above Sidmouth. You drop through woodland to the path beside the River Sid. At the seafront, a shingle ridge provides a buffer zone between the sea and town. Zigzag up the hill, above the towering red cliffs, to bring you up to a viewpoint with breathtaking views out over Lyme Bay and the famous cliffs of the Jurassic Coast.

We did this walk on a very cold but dry and sunny day in February. It was delightful but be warned as there are 92 steps down to the beach itself and it felt like an awful lot more coming back up again! Definitely worth...More

Parked the car and decided to have a walk..... have done this walk many times and always astounded by the views. You can walk into Sidmouth which is all down hill, so remember when walking back it’s all up hill, there are more amazing views...More

We parked in the National Trust car park and then did a circular walk of 4-5 miles which took us down into Sidmouth and then through the Byes riverside park. Getting back up to the top of the hill is a bit of a slog!...More

Lovely views, moderate difficulty level as there some steep climbs. However we were well directed by the online set of directions. The path and steps are well maintained and there are a good set of benches throughout the walk.

The car park is national trust. You can walk from the car park to the cliff edge in a circular route and it is flat, so suitable for the elderly. Also walk through the woods towards Salcombe Regis and cut across the fields path back...More

This three and a half mile walk is not for everyone as it is quite exhausting in parts but well worth doing if you are fit and we had the pleasure of seeing vast areas of bluebells, being early May
