Walk - Clovelly & Mouth Mill
5.0 miles (8.0 km)
Brownsham National Trust Car Park - EX39 6AN Brownsham Car Park
Moderate - Coastal and inland footpaths and tracks, which are rocky in places and may be muddy, a quiet road, a green lane. Plenty fo ascent and descent, some of it steep.
A walk in the woods, also passing through the Brownsham Moors and the Culm Grasslands, an unusual habitat with a rich diversity of wildlife. There is an optional detour into the famous thatched-and-cobbled village of Clovelly, where donkeys are still the main form of transport up the steep village street and residents carry their shopping on sleds. A great walk in spring, when cackling pheasants strut through a woodland carpeted with bluebells and wild garlic, and nesting seabirds squabble on the cliffs. It is also good in the autumn, when the trees start to turn and small birds and mammals rummage through the fallen leaves in search of winter stores.
