Self Guided Walks

We offer you a choice of seven walks with route finders that we commissioned from a professional local walking guide, written especially for us, starting from the door of the hotel. There are walks for all abilities – from strolling to serious walking – you can choose one per day to suit your interest!
We also have many other routes and places of interest for you, as we are very enthusiastic about this beautiful area and keen to share our local knowledge with you!

Walk 1

1. Watersmeet & Countisbury
This is a much loved walk as it covers every kind of terrain in just one afternoon! It goes along the wooded Lyn River valley with the beautiful white water rapids, otters, herons and jumping salmon in season, to a Victorian Stone Hunting Lodge (now a National Trust Tea Room) and up through an old oak wood to the open moors past a lovely country pub and back along the South West Coastal Path with breathtaking sea views.

2 & 3. Woody Bay (Two different walks available)
One walk goes along the South West Coastal Path exploring some of the most beautiful coastline in the UK, including the Valley of Rocks – an AONB (area of outstanding natural beauty), with beautiful typical Devon coves and viewpoints. Wild goats and Exmoor ponies live in this area.

Walk 2
Walk 4

4. Malmsmead
This walk goes across some of the most beautiful moorland on Exmoor, covering the Doone Valley from the famous novel ‘Lorna Doone’, visiting landmarks from the story such as Oare Church. The colours change throughout the year with the purple heather and yellow gorse and other wildflowers. Red deer, birds and other wildlife are abundant in this part of Exmoor National Park.

5. Simonsbath
A picturesque circular walk taking you through one of the highest beech woods in the country, where indigenous rare Exmoor ponies live, past a well preserved Iron Age hill fort, and then up the valley of one of the largest and most attractive rivers to run off Exmoor, passing on the way the remains of an old copper mine.

Walk 5
Walk 6

6. Two Moors Way
This linear walk takes you along the last 9 miles of the Two Moors Way. High on Exmoor, this remote walk goes to the head of the River Exe running off Exmoor towards the
south coast and follows two other river valleys towards the north coast. You will enjoy some of the best scenery Exmoor has to offer and end the walk in the delightful village of Lynmouth

7. Lundy Island
Having taken the ferry, MS Oldenburg to the island, you have the opportunity to really get away from it all on this delightful walk. It will show you much of the island in the time available,
showing the contrast between the east and west sides of the island, which is the natural habitat to the rare puffins and other wildlife. There is plenty to explore and enjoy before returning to the ship for the return journey.
