Top 5 autumn walks in Devon
The leaves are falling at our Devon holiday parks and the nights are drawing in but to me there is nothing better than a peaceful autumn walk. With its rural and coastal landscape, autumn suits Devon.
Here are my top 5 autumn walks across Devon:
1) North Dartmoor – This 7 mile walk brings you to the highest points on the moor. Starting in Okehampton , take in the poised arches of Fatherford Viaduct and the charming flow of the East Okement River.
2) Andrew’s Wood- This beautiful woodland haven is just north of Kingsbridge and 5 miles long, perfect for exploring without going for miles and miles. During the tranquil walk you will come across wild flowers, old walls, woodland birds and maybe one of Exmoor’s stunning ponies.
3) Combe Martin – Close to our Sandaway Beach holiday park, start this idyllic walk at Combe Martin’s golden sands this circular walk will take you to some breathtaking views. The 3.6 mile hike is recommended to those who would prefer a gentle walking experience and during the autumn you will find orange leaves with an abundance of wildlife.
4) Hartland Point – A very dramatic coastal path of the South West and in autumn it really comes to life. During the autumn season you can experience the dominant waves batter the cliffs, crunch through the leaves and you might even be lucky and spot some seals.
5) RHS Rosemoor – The burning colours await you as you head to the stunning grounds of RHS Garden Rosemoor close to Torrington . You can learn about the range of plants and wildlife, participate in pumpkin carving, making hedgehog houses and many more autumnal activities.
