Family Walks

carefully selected circular walks

Delightful short & generally easy family walks through beautiful Devon.

All Walks have been selected with the following factors in mind:


Some walks may include quiet country lanes but main roads or busy lanes are always avoided.

Any traffic issues are highlighted:

Road subject to (heavy) traffic  heavy traffic
Crossing busy road  busy crossing

The routes we have selected should not be subject to heavy traffic or include difficult crossings.

Please report any traffic related issues during your walk.

Beach & river walking.

Youngsters love exploring beaches or shallow rivers.

Some additional interest to engage the children

This is often in the form of information boards or as in the case of Haldon, various large wooden instruments and shelters.

Wildlife and nature trails

Walks through nature reserves or butterfly walks, ie Haldon, Exeter Valley Park, capture children's imagination.
