The walk begins in the village of Woodbury, passing the 15th Century church before heading off across fields towards Woodbury Salterton. The route initially provides sweeping views back towards the Exe Estuary before leaving the public footpath for a short spell along country lanes. After another short footpath, again with lovely views, it's back to the lanes into the village of Woodbury Salterton. Here you will find The Diggers Rest which started life as a 'cider house' over 500 years ago; and the Holy Trinity Church. Leaving the village, the journey back to Woodbury is mainly across fields and generally downhill. All the footpaths are well-signposted and the route is easily followed. There are no stiles to climb but several gates, all of which are in a good state of repair and easy to open and close.

Walked in May 2021 in showery weather. A pleasant, well-described walk that was easy to navigate, but nothing special.

A really pleasant short walk over gentle terrain. No stiles or livestock encountered on a brilliant July day. Thanks to Jane Sleight for writing it up.

Really enjoyable walk, mainly flat, a god send on the very hot day we did it. Some nice views and plenty of places to stop for your picnic. Directions spot on :-)

We did this walk on 2nd April on a beautiful sunny day. All the details were spot on and the point in the walk which is described as boggy has been sorted as the landowner has laid some boarding down. Lovely scenery, pretty villages (very clean) and the bonus was we found two lovely caravan sites (Caravan Club members only).
