Wembury CP (Barton Close) - River Yealm - Mewstone view - Wembury Beach - Knighton Farm - Wembury CP

A walk with a bit of everything, footpaths through fields, views of Dartmoor at one point, the sea and the lovely River Yealm. It includes a section of the South West Coastal Path and even the start of the Devon version of the Coast to Coast Path. What more could you want, beach and a swim or surf? Yes, even that is on offer.

The walk takes you from the large village of Wembury from a car park strategically situated near the Odd Wheel pub, out across fields and roads to high above the River Yealm and a loop down to the very edge of the river and the ferry across it. From there it's up again, to take the coastal path west along to Wembury Beach, where there is a church, car park, toilets and a shop and the start of the coast to coast walk, a route linking Wembury to Lynmouth - rather more than a day's walk! The route is then up a splendid valley, along footpaths and with a small amount of road-walking from beyond Wembury to near Knighton, before returning right by the Odd Wheel public house and the car park.
