Walk - Labrador Bay
4.3 miles (7.0 km)
Shaldon Ness - TQ14 0HP Shaldon Ness
Challenging - The route passes through farmland which can be wet and muddy, so good footwear is recommended.
This high-level walk has a lot of ascent and descent, some of which is steep and can be slippery, but the stunning coastal views in all directions make it worth the effort. Starting at the Ness headland, planted to mark Queen Victoria's coronation, it loops through the RSPB Nature Reserve at Labrador Bay. Look out for the rare cirl bunting or a shy roe deer.
A good walk in springtime, when the rattling call of the RSPB reserve's cirl buntings can be heard across the fields and the woods are carpeted with bluebells. Look out for peregrines peregrines flying over the cliffs.
