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.
