This walk with no steep hiils explores the rural and peaceful life around Aylesbeare and Perkin's Village using quiet lanes and public footpaths - ideal for a spring or summer's day.

Two centuries ago Perkin's Village was called Parkyns Village,which was named after the 'end' of an 11th century deer park ,west of the village.

Sadly,the park no longer exists.

Expect to see freely wandering chickens or turkeys on a farm nearby.

Also,look out for the thatched 'Old Farmhouse' in the same village.

The route offers some extensive views of Exeter & Haldon.
