Walking

The Burrow is perfectly located for the two principal walks in East Devon. The South West coast Path and the East Devon Way.  As we are situated right in the middle of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), every way you turn from The Burrow results in some incredibly beautiful walks and views. This is what the AONB themselves have to say about the area: “The East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) landscape is characterised by intimate wooded combes, vast areas of heathland, fertile river valleys and breathtaking cliffs or hilltops.  It includes the East Devon section of the Jurassic Coast – England’s first natural World Heritage Site – and is a living, working landscape shaped by many centuries of farming activity”

One of the biggest draws to the area, is the South West Coast Path (SWCP), which has been voted ‘Britain’s Best Walking route’ twice in a row, by readers of the Ramblers Walk magazine, and which regularly features in lists of the world’s best walks. It was also classed as “one of the world’s greatest walks” (Lonely Planet’s Great Adventures 2012).

The Coast Path is enjoyed by millions of residents and visitors to the South West every year. The sheer variety means there are plenty of gentle stretches as well as dramatic headlands and steep coastal valleys where the going can be strenuous and demanding. Relaxation, challenge, tranquillity or inspiration – the choice is yours!

We are very lucky to be within 4 miles of the Jurassic Coast section of this walk. No matter how short your stay, the path should be on your “to do” list!

In The Burrow we provide OS maps, and guides on the best walks in the East Devon area.
