Walk Description:

We’ll kick start our senses (and our body) with a warm up in the Sandymere car park before getting into our stride walking along the edge of the golf course towards Westward Ho!

At the edge of the burrows we will take the boardwalk that leads us to the slipway and onto the beach. Where there is ample opportunity for some to continue at a leisurely pace while taking in the sights and sounds of the sea, the gulls and the various vistas on offer whilst for the more active members of the group they have the opportunity to move through the gears and stretch their legs to their hearts content.

Having passed the Sandymere slip way we will make our way off the beach to take refreshments at the Pebble ridge kitchen at the visitors centre.

Leg 2 will see us return to the beach and continue in the direction of Appledore, rounding the headland and following the estuary (here once again the more energetic of the group can (should they wish to) indulge in walking in the soft sand that will not only get the blood flowing around the body but will burn off those unwanted calories) until once again crossing into the burrows, following the access route onto the lane which we will follow until we meet Sandymere road that takes us through the very centre of the golf course and back to our start point for the cool down.
