Wester Wood

Walk start: Lynmouth Distance: 3.3 miles (5.3 km) Difficulty: Moderate


Iron Age hillforts, Saxon-Danish battles, a Domesday manor and a twentieth-century tragedy, all in a spectacular setting, first along a path high above the dark sea at Lynmouth and then through idyllic woodland with bubbling waterfalls and a quietly chuckling river. A lovely walk in spring, when swathes of bluebells and wild garlic are dotted with celandines and the air rings with birdsong. A good route for children, too, who will love the adventurous flavour of the terrain and its tempestuous history.
