This page outlines three of our all-time favourite East Devon walks. If you’re after fresh air, wildlife or coastal views, East Devon is the right place for you.

Branscombe to Beer walk:

6 mile round walk.

Branscombe village (believed to be the longest in-country) really is a picture postcard. From the beach area, head left over the cliffs. Enjoy the views and take in the sea air. As the name suggests, Beer is a great ‘go-to location’ for a beer!  Beer is famous for its smuggling history, and this cove is home to an array of fishing boats bringing in regular catches to be sold at both the fresh fish hut on the beach as well as featuring on the menus of many of the restaurants in the town.

1 mile round walk

The East Devon Walks are not complete without a short walk around Salcombe Hill with breathtaking views of our beautiful Jurassic Coast. This walk leads out to a viewpoint on the cliff top with amazing views over Sidmouth and on a good day out to Portland Bill in Dorset. In summer the area is filled with wildflowers.
