Extra Walking Day Option

For a longer walk, a crafty plan is to let us transfer you up onto the high moor at Simonsbath  - a moorland village around 10 miles away.  You can then return on a glorious descent from the heights of Exe Head all the way back down to sea level, passing through every stage of the Moor, from the heather uplands to the deep gorges on one glorious downhill romp! En-route you will pass the source of the mighty River Exe, the ancient Hoar Oak Tree and the snaking ridge top Cleaves Trail above the thundering East Lyn Gorge. It is the best day on the whole week long Two Moors Way walk which is why we think it’s a 'sneaky option' to add on to the Coleridge Way and easy to fit in with an extra day at Lynmouth – just ask and we can tell you more! CLICK HERE to read about the walking day.

If you want to see the best of the coastline before departing, then you have immediate access onto The South West Coast Path here and you can have a transfer to the beach-side village of Combe Martin to walk over the highest point on the whole 630 mile trail at Great Hangman. This imposing humpback is topped with a lonely cairn at 318m (1043ft) and the reward if you climb over it is the best view over Exmoor and the Bristol Channel yet.  We can transfer you out to the pretty village of Combe Martin to walk back to Lynmouth (around 13 miles if you want a full day's walk) OR drop you halfway at the famous Hunters Inn which sits at the head of v-shaped Heddons Valley, a steep sided glacial forested gorge that sits around 6 miles out of Lynmouth. Both routes will take in the Valley of the Rocks as you re-enter Lynmouth - CLICK HERE to read about the walking day to Combe Martin and Heddons Valley.
