Stage 1

Exmouth to Woodbury Castle

ExmouthExmouth is a lively town, situated on the east coast of Devon, where the River Exe meets the sea.

It has a long sandy beach and is a thriving town, it links to the South West Coast Path and has a good rail service and bus links.

The walk starts at the estuary, one of the biggest Local Nature Reserves in Devon with a massive area of tidal sand and mud at the southern end of the Exe estuary. It’s a globally important area for winter birds.

The route passes A la Ronde, a National Trust property and a lovely place to stop for a cup of tea, onwards the trail winds through Lympstone Common a pleasant woodland area and then on to Blackhill Quarry where you may see grazing ponies.

This landscape will be constantly changing over the coming years as the
RSPB transform it from a quarry back to heathland. The path leads on to
Woodbury Castle for fabulous views.
