Walk - Otterton Park
5.3 miles (8.5 km)
The western end of South Farm Road - EX9 7AY The western end of South Farm Road
Moderate - Paths and tracks, with a short stretch of a quiet country lane. A certain amount of steep ascent and descent.
Featuring extensive sea views with a wartime history, a smugglers' bay and the story of a rural dynasty, this is a walk along coast and river, returning overland along some of the many old lanes travelling between the open strips of farmland first set out in Saxon times. A good walk in autumn, when birds and small mammals rummage through the fallen leaves in search of winter supplies.
