A 3 mile circular pub walk from the Harbour Inn in Axmouth. An undulating and rewarding walk through the lanes, fields and tracks of South Devon. Good exercise, excellent views and lots of birdlife to enjoy.

There are several slopes throughout plus several gates and three stiles. You will need to cross one section of a golf course so take particular care here to allow players to pass and look out for any stray flying golf balls. Approximate time 80 to 100 minutes.

The walks starts and finishes at the Harbour Inn which can be found opposite the church on Church Street in Axmouth. Approximate post code EX12 4AF.
