Walk - Hartland Quay Circular
4.0 miles (6.5 km)
Hartland Quay Car Park - EX39 6DU Hartland Quay Car Park
Moderate - The terrain is very varied, with easy and level stretches and some steep, uneven climbs.
The sound of bubbling water follows you almost all the way around this beautiful circular walk. The route takes you along the Coast Path past streams banked with yellow flag irises, foxgloves and campion in the summer, along wooded inland paths carpeted with bluebells and wild garlic in the spring, and quiet farm lanes dotted with primroses. A good walk in autumn, when flocks of migrant seabirds can be seen passing offshore and the stubble of the fields is full of small birds feeding on the fallen seeds. Older children will be fascinated by the rock formations and the spectacular plunging waterfalls.
