Walk - Selworthy Combe
3.3 miles (5.3 km)
Hill Road Car Park Above Combeshead - TA24 5LB Hill Road Car Park Above Combeshead
Moderate - Tracks and footpaths, some ascent and descent.
A delightful stroll through some gorgeous woodland on a country estate, with bubbling streams and Victorian water features, little bridges and winding paths. The air is full of birdsong and the old trees soar gracefully above as you drop gently down through the combe. It is particularly pretty in the springtime, when the unfurling ferns and the brand new leaves are fresh and sharp, there are primroses along the streams, bluebells under the trees and other wildflowers in the grass, and the trees are bright with blossom. In autumn, too, the majestic trees of the Victorian parkland are vivid in their changing colours and they are alive with small birds and mammals collecting up the bounty.
