Just a delightful and gentle walk ideal for spring or summer through pretty landscapes and woodlands.The lanes,in this sheltered part of devon,are fauna rich.

The route passes a public lane leading to Oxton House,once owned by the Rev and artist John Swete. Although the house is not open to the public,it's well worth making the 15 minutes detour.
