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.

Some great views of the River Exe anytime of the year, where you can walk, run, or bike ride. Best of all which ever way you walk etc, there is somewhere nice to have refreashments.

A good walk to built up your fitness. If your are unsure if you can manage both there and back, you can always take the train in one direction. Nice to see a ice-cream bicycle selling local ices on a hot day.

Pleasant walk along the Exe estuary trail. Easy walk with great views. Look around Lympstone and visit one of the pubs before walking back or catch the train.

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.
