We recommend this walk only if you,have a gps or mobile or have a good map.

This is a long but very varied circular walk from Whimple to Clyst Hydon via the charming village of Clyst St Lawrence.

You can break your journey half way by visiting the famous Five Bells pub pub.

Considering the distance,most of it is covered by tracks or public foot paths.

There are no steep climbs. In June the orchards are quite sensational.

Although all the paths are well signed,a GPS will be useful to guide you through an often undulating landscape.

During the winter some paths can be quite muddy.
