Stage 3

Aylesbeare Common to Sidbury

This is a varied landscape walk, through Aylesbeare Common Nature Reserve, one of the few remaining southern lowland heathland habitats in England, interesting through all seasons and grazed in summer by traditional livestock.

The route then crosses the River Otter, through Harpford wood, with remains of a Victorian railway line, then rises to see panoramic views at Fire Beacon Hill before dropping down into Sidbury, a quintessential thatched Devon village with a pub, one of the earliest settlements in Devon.
