Your Walking Routes

"We were fortunate to have good weather on 2 out of 3 days so could appreciate the sheer cliffs, the wildflowers, the beauty of Exmoor and the coastal paths and woodland. The walks are well signposted although the distances are wildly incorrect and unreliable, so be prepared for some weary chuckles as you think you are nearing the end of your long and strenous walks. Lunching in the shade of the Hoar Oak Tree or on a clifftop above the deep blue sea was lovely."

Walking notes, maps, guidebooks and itinerary

"The terrain is deceptively difficult but take your time, take your lunch, and as above take your sense of humour (or your GPS) so you fully enjoy it all. The maps and guidebooks are helpful."


"The hotel was lovely as is the restaurant attached to it. However, do not use the guest fridge. Someone stole my water bottle (clearly not supplied by the hotel and as part of a pair) one morning, meaning I had to scramble to find enough water for the day's long walk in the heat. The hotel staff were not around for me to discuss with either. It goes without saying that guests using communal facilities ought to respect other guests' personal belongings, particularly during a pandemic, and it is a shame that I had to fork out to replace my own things."

Overall experience

"There are some great restaurants in Lynmouth to keep your tummy happy after a long day's walk."

Route: One Centre - Lynmouth Name: Anna Walked on: 17th August 2018

UK FlagWell what can I say but a very big thank you. Just returned from our walking trip to lynmouth and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The rising Sun was excellent accommodation and superb food. We walked the gorge walk the first day then taxi to combe Martin on Saturday and walked back into lynmouth. Completed in 6 hours. The weather was pretty kind to us. Showers most of the morning then the sun came out in the afternoon but a nice breeze to keep us cool. My friend had a fancy watch on that tells us how far we walked and the steps. 14 miles on the Saturday. Sunday we took a taxi to Porlock weir and walked back to lynmouth. Your notes state 12 miles but there are a lot of landslides along this stretch with a lot of diversions so my friends fancy watch actually recorded us walking 14.5 miles. Still we completed in just under 6 hours as was a more moderate walk. The heathers were all in flower so beautiful surroundings. We had aching legs the next morning but really enjoyed it. Trying to plan our next trip....any suggestions?
