Park at the Exmoor National Park car park, cross the road and get onto the footpath that heads up Hollerday Hill. Make a left at the T-junction and for a moment you will walk along the South West Coast Path. Look out at the Celtic Sea on your right side. Walk past a tor called Rugged Jack, and then the path will begin to do downhill around the head. You will eventually come to Castle Rock, which you will have go ascend to reach. You also have the option to head downhill to Wringcliff Bay, a secluded beach which you will either have all to yourself, or will share with few others, depending on the time of year. Whether you choose to visit or not this time around, your next stop will be Lee Abbey. Head downhill towards the abbey and then take the trail that goes uphill on the left. Now you are coming upon the Six Acre Wood- make a left to follow the bridleway. Be intentional with your navigation when you come to a switchback. Here you you will want to leave the bridleway and stay straight towards South Cleave. Head downhill (passing a cemetery on your right) and you will be on your way back to the car park.

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.

This walk is stunning! One of my favourites I’ve done so far. There is a trail if you like to take it easy, we went down to the river bed a lot and across the stones which makes it more challenging.

Pasture one side , sea the other, great contrast.

Takes a little longer due to the frequent stops to admire the views.

Beautiful place❤️

Enjoyed this walk today

A fabulous but challenging walk through the North Devon countryside. Stunning river walk then a very steep climb out of the gorge but so worth it for the views.

A really lovely walk.

Beautiful walk. Varied with stunning views, brilliantly described route and much needed shady woods for the uphill and downhill sections. Love this app.
