Anstey Gate - Anstey Common - East Anstey - West Anstey - Combe Wood - Anstey Gate

A demanding walk from the open moorland of Anstey Common, where there is an excellent chance of seeing red deer and Exmoor ponies, via Anstey Long Stone and West Anstey Barrows, down to the totally unspoilt hamlets of East and West Anstey, moorland, lanes and fields, before climbing back to the open moor. This walk has it all.

Anstey Common is easily reached from the towns of North Devon, but totally quiet and beautiful. The combes are deep and there is plenty of wildlife. Exmoor ponies are always around and deer are often to be seen in the combes. At East Anstey is the old station for the disused GWR track between Taunton and Barnstaple and the old track and bridge can easily be seen. There are very attractive churches in both hamlets. There is an excellent pub in the village of Molland and a tea shop, which you can use for refreshments after your walk.
