HikingMuddy

Due to covid, this hike was done in reverse in order to adhere to the one way system of the much shorter circular trail which you overlap with a bit. Even w/o that I would do it in reverse order and get the steep bit out of the way at the beginning, and end with the trail by the water and under the shade. Note that doing it in reverse, you'll walk on the road to Withypool for a bit before going off road again. With pool is about half way and you can stop for lunch or a snack if you've not brought along lunch. There are muddy bits even with a dry summer this year.

Did the circular via Watersmeed and Countisbury based on the National Trust route. The first part of the trail (up to Watersmeet) is beautiful and would deserve 5 stars. The second part which goes up to the South West coast path also has some decent views but is not that great. Would suggest sticking with the route on AllTrails as it's nicer and easier.

A spellbinding stroll; the river valley up to the delightful Watersmeet Tea Room; the switchback paths through old oak woodlands; the bracken covered trails atop the hills, and the spectacular sea views. You’ll need a head for heights as there is plenty of exposure throughout the walk. Finish the experience with a trip up the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway.

A truly enchanting loop. Woodlands, stunning sea views, moorland, and beautiful glens. With a trip to Periwinkle Cottage Tea Room to look forward to at the end, you can’t go wrong.

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.

HikingOver grown

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.

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!

Great walk. Very muddy and some difficult terrain. Steep climbs to avoid disappearing paths. Cow churned paths. Autumn colours were fantastic. Pubs very welcoming. We had a great day.

Takes a lot longer and the distances are greater than the maps/signposts say! Some tough inclines but stunning views. Lynton has a few pubs - nothing special. The Crown Hotel does a nice carvery. ‘Middle of nowhere feel’ to the area. Note ; Sainsburys will deliver out here!

overall a great walk alongside the river though you need to watch out for the horse flies.

The beach of Porlock is made up of boulders, so that part definitely isn't easy. Access to the beach from the path up to the coastguard lookout is temporarily closed off due to grazing cattle (didn't see any though)

we have done lots of walks using ifootpath and we agree that this is the best one we've ever done. 4 parts of the walk you have the coast of Wales in The view on one side and on the other is a very big valley. ahead is a stunning view of the town of Limerick where you can see houses dotted around the woods.

This is my favourite walk. Having done the Lynmouth to Waters meet riverside path several times over the years I was keen to try this variation on our usual walk. I can thoroughly recommend this route as it offers a beautiful wooded valley riverside walk followed by a coastal hill top path with the added benefit of the National Trust cafe and toilets (you don't have to be a member) half way round. Stunning views all-round and Lynmouth is a lovely town with shops, cafes and restaurants.
