Our walk starts near the small Barge Museum at the Bude Heritage Canal site and after crossing the busy A39 and the Bude Canal, follows peaceful footpaths across fields and newly planted woodland. Along the way there is a variety of flora to see and many chances to catch a glimpse of some of the multitude of wildlife.

After crossing the Widemouth road, this section of the walk ends at the popular surfing complex of Widemouth Bay, where toilets and refreshments may be found. Here we join the coast path for a short section before crossing the road again to another footpath across rolling fields on our return journey. Near the end of this section (Waymark 21) you will have an opportunity of lunch or tea at the tea rooms.

Walesborough Woods: covering an area of twenty hectares, they were newly planted in 2001 and a new footpath linking the canal towpath to the coast path was subsequently created.

Note: due to the newness of this walk, it does not yet appear on any maps. It should be noted therefore that map or GPS references will be guesswork and are not to be relied upon. The path is generally well-marked and the directions should be adequate without chance of becoming lost.
