Walking and Rambling In Devon
Baggy Point | Croyde

Britain’s first biosphere reserve makes for excellent walking to terrain. Take in stunning views over Saunton Sands and enjoy some of Braunton’s internationally famed plant and animal life. The following websites contain downloadable walks in Braunton and the surrounding area.
The South West Coast Path
Enjoy fabulous coastal scenery and wildlife along the South West Coast Path. The path runs 630 miles from Minehead in Somerset, through Devon and Cornwall ending at Poole harbour in Dorset, meaning there’s more than enough to occupy even the keenest of walkers. Find walks according to location and difficulty on the South West Coast Path website.
The Tarka Trail
Explore a varied landscape of tranquil riverbanks, rugged coastline, woods and valleys along the winding 180-mile Tarka Trail. The flat stretch of disused railway between Braunton, Barnstaple, Bideford and Torrington along the Taw and Torridge rivers is particularly good for walkers and cyclists.
