A very pleasant rural walk with glimpses of the Torbay Coastline as well as the River Dart. This walk is suitable for dogs who can be allowed off their leads along the bridle path sections. Across fields, dogs should be on leads if there are livestock. Same for the road section: although this is a country lane, it is also the main route to Greenway House (Agatha Christie's home) which is popular with tourists and therefore the lane can be busy. Most gradients are gentle and the road section is reasonably flat. However, there is one steeper section on the way back, thus increasing the difficulty rating. Baby buggies with small wheels will find some bits troublesome. Larger wheeled/"all terrain" buggies should be OK (so long as the person pushing is reasonably fit and healthy). Fans of steam railways may be rewarded with the sight of trains passing along the Paignton to Dartmouth Steam railway.

Did this walk a week after the Mini Beast from the East hit Devon. Part of it involved clambering over and sinking into snow drifts. Nice walk with good views but a bit muddy in places.
