Overview

An easy, gentle 2.3 mile stroll from Exmouth along the eastern bank of the Exe Estuary, whose mudflats, sandbanks and marshes are of international importance for their wildlife, especially the tens of thousands of resident and migratory waterbirds. Look out for avocets, curlews and lapwings, even seals and otters, and buzzards wheeling overhead. Take time to explore Lympstone before catching the train back to Exmouth.

We often take this dedicated walk/cycle way along the Exe Estuary.. Fabulous views to the west across the Estuary/river particularly at sunset. If you make it as far as Lympstone there are a couple of pubs for refreshment.

Great place to walk and bird watch, just be careful of speeding cyclists. Views fantastic on clear days. Invigorating walk when cold.

Only a couple of miles to Lympstone and start from Exmouth by the River Exe and walk up to Lympstone. Can use the cycle path. Pick a clear calm day.

On a nice clear day, why not walk the cycle path, tarmac surfaced, between Exmouth and Lympstone. On your left the huge expanse, of the River Exe estuary, the single track, oh so scenic railway line, to Exeter. At high tide, you will probably see...More
