Walk Description:

We’ll kick start our senses (and our body) with a warm up in the lay-by before getting into our stride by crossing the Tarka trail onto the first of two beaches prior to joining the SWCP along the edge of the Taw Estuary towards Yelland with great views across to Chivenor and the entrance to Velator creek. In the far distance we can see both Saunton & Braunton Down.  The going is easy and flat albeit soft underfoot during the winter. We will navigate our way around the perimeter of the old power station taking in further views of the white house and Crow Point while watching and listening to the local wild life such as egret’s fishing in the nearby stream. We then cross the field and Tarka trail to Sandbanks Cafe for some light refreshments before returning back along the Tarka rail to our start point and complete our cool down and stretches.  


Please Note:  This is a gentle walk and all on the flat. It should be reasonably good walking but sometimes the wind can be a bit stiff.

Location Notes:

Large Lay-by on outskirts of Instow with free parking for up to 4hrs and pathway to the beach
