Three fabulous days: the first time I’ve tried the route from north to south. We got a lift to Lynmouth on the Saturday, so could set off at a reasonable time on the Sunday. Day One ended at The Royal Oak at Withypool (wonderful place to stay). Eighteen glorious miles across Exmoor, first following the East Lyn river and then Hoaroak Water to the Chains ridge, with wonderful views along the way. Treated ourselves to delicious coffee and cake at Boevey’s Tearooms in Simonsbath, and ended the day wandering along the Barle Valley, one of

Knowstone to Tarr Steps ( South/North) Our second section: We stayed at

Starting in the village of Withypool this is a great start/introduction to the Barle Valley. A stunning walk up on to the heart of Exmoor soon follows but not before you get the opportunity for refuelling or some lunch at Simonsbath. A stunning day walk that offers an array of some of the best scenery in the South West and takes you from its glorious countryside to the awe inspiring coastline at Lynmouth. After treating ourselves to a cream tea in Lynmouth we took the funicular to Lynton and a great B&B – North Walk
