Fab walk to do in the winter months, as the pathway isn’t muddy, so you can do the walk in comfortable footwear if you don’t have walking boots. Big bonus is the M&S Food at the end of the walk once you get to Exmouth!

Lots of cyclists on the pathway, which can get a bit crowded. Easy walking, nice views out over the estuary

A beautiful walk with stunning views of the wonderful Exe Estuary completely ruined by many, not all , cyclists. These, mostly clad in gaudy Lycra, hurtle past at speeds around 30 mph. Walking at approximately 5mph they are approaching, silently at 6 times my speed....More

I have walked this a number of times and I'm always impressed by the ever changing light and landscape, depending on the level of the tide. The pathway is well constructed with great views all along the way. You can walk one way and then...More

This is an easy level walk from the gorgeous village of Lympstone. (Well worth a visit on its own) Most of the walk is along a purpose built boardwalk but all of the route is shared with cyclists which can make it quite tricky if...More
