Holdstone Down

Walk start: Holdstone Down Distance: 2.3 miles (3.7 km) Difficulty: Easy


A short walk through a high-level wilderness with ancient settlements, plans for an ambitious Victorian housing estate which fortunately came to nought, and a history of spaceships and extra-terrestrial forces. UFO-spotters regularly gather on the summit of this 'holy mountain' and children will love the mysterious pebble arrows often left around the cairn by 'alien' visitors.

Walk provided by: South West Coast Path
