Walk - Daddyhole Plain
1.9 miles (3.0 km)
Daddyhole Plain car park TQ1 2LJ Daddyhole Plain
Moderate - A short stroll with some steep ascent and descent in places, including steps.
This walk around one of Torbay's three limestone plateaux gives great views of the Bay and the harbour. It travels through an area once formally cultivated by Victorian gardeners but now preserved as a wildlife conservation area, rich in rare plants and with its own colony of the nationally endangered horseshoe bats in a former wartime lookout post. Children will love the dramatic outlook over the cliffs and the London Bridge rock arch, as well as the adventure playground feel of the route. Watch out for the Devil in his limestone cave!
