Part of the trail was blocked by a horse at the gate of the footpath by the little cottages and he was not budging!! Walk around was easy to nav but shorter distance and narrow busy lane leading to Otter Nursery.

I recommended walk, Children managed this walk with ease youngest is 8..my children are good walkers. Not pushchair friendly. Nice and scenic. Crossing the river could be more difficult if river is high.

Great route, guide covered all of the terrain and places to see. Lovely walk in a fantastic location. Well recommended.

Lovely little walk, fairly easy paths with lots of wildlife, bit of road walking but not too much traffic.

Fantastic views in the first half of the hike from trentishoe to Coombe martin. Very hilly and more difficult than moderate I would say. We did do the hike yesterday and the weather was up to 25 so was a hot day. Second half of the walk is not so hilly and the views are okay. Footpaths are very overgrown but they were cutting the hedges etc down so should be fine soon. Views don't really get better until you are near Hele but worth keeping at it. Would definetly recommend and will do it again but I would probably only do trentishoe to coombe martin for the views. Done it in around 5 hours as in walking time and 7 hours including the breaks.

This trail is absolutely stunning but the second half of the full route from the walled fern path that switches back in parallel to the A39 is incredibly overgrown with ferns and bracken. The views once you get to the Beacon point are amazing! This isn’t a route you should underestimate, it’s moderate to slightly hard but under foot was tricky at times primarily due to overgrowth. FYI - The public toilets aren’t open on this route.

This trail will not disappoint! The start of the trail at the foot of the car park is slightly overgrown with brambles and nettles so a heads up to maybe wear trousers because there are certainly ticks around. The path width isn’t wide and it isn’t fenced along the cliff so I would be cautious about having children on the path at all. It’s an incredible walk, slightly strenuous in some parts but only for short bursts of elevation. We stopped halfway for lunch on the beach (short diversion but public toilets are open) and it’s idyllic and couldn’t recommend this route more for peace and quiet and stunning views!

Great day out on this trail with the family. Parked at NT carpark, well signposted along the way. Great spots along the river before the waterfall for a good (cold) swim! So cozzies and towels a must to pack. Going again with bikes as the hunters/fishermans path didnt seem suitable for family bikes, but on the other side of the river looked like a good path to try. Pub was open selling from a hatch at the bridge. Great trail, and some excellent viewing points on the high ground along the way too.

Lovely walk, though the hill on the way back is long and steep.

Great long walk to Budleigh Salterton and back along the River Otter. Easy to follow paths and plenty of shady lunch spots.

One of my favourite in all seasons. Best to do just before sun set.

Great route with a lovely mix of heath paths, green lanes and woodland.

Old school house to the A39 and back. Only recorded on the way back so distance and time was doubled. Sunny day, just road walking which is nice for a change, a dry sunny day, peaceful with nice view.

A really nice walk with some very beautiful scenery following the river from Rockford to watersmeet and back. I loved this walk, lots of places to get down to the river and Cassie loved jumping in. Would be lovely when the Rockford inn and watersmeet tea rooms are open to have a coffee and cake after a nice walk!

Brilliant little walk after a great Sunday Lunch at The Moor Land Hotel. The quarry still has bits of old machinery from when they mined the stone in the Georgian era. Very cool

Gentle trail with great changing landscapes from ancient woods, riverside walk and through a forest at the end. After rain there are areas that are boggy and very wet! Would recommend waterproof shoes! Loved it!

très belle randonnée avec des paysages variés, je conseille mais avec des chaussures imperméables car nous avons croisé de nombreux marécages.

Stunning views and lovely river!.. Can't forget the pub as well

I did enjoy this walk, because I love long rambly walks with my dog. However as a trail it’s not good- had to pass through 3 streams with no bridge (one instance I had to take my boots and socks off as was too high) and had to climb over many gates which was fine for me and my young agile dog but wouldn’t recommend for people who have limited mobility/kids etc. Couldn’t cross fields where I was meant to die to fencing so ended up walking an extra 3km to get around those too. Also there was no parking at the start just a lay-by that would fit max one car. Again fine for me but not sure where else you’d park if there was someone in the lay-by

Beautiful scenery. A tough climb in places especially with the wind against you. Very muddy in places but just about passable. Refreshments in the Thatch Barn - dog-friendly and great food. Lovely walk.
