Walk 3
Littleham (5.9 miles)


Descending towards Littleham
Descending Towards Littleham

Our most popular walk runs along the coast & into Littleham.

It passes the Clinton Arms & follows part of the old railway line between Budleigh and Exmouth.

A fairly active golf course has to be crossed.

Short description:

Facing the sea turn right & follow the coastal path to Littleham Holiday Park.

Here turn right and inland towards Littleham Village - the caravan site is a bit a maze but head for the main entrance.

At Littleham church turn right into Castle Lane then take a foot path on left which partly goes through a church yard then finally joins the old railway , now a cycle path.

Turn right and continue for almost a mile.

Just before bridge take foot path on right and turn right at lane; continue for 300 m then join a footpath ahead of you ;go through a gate and into the woods (part of the golf course )

From here the route on the map is quite different and more involved.

The easiest will be to continue following this public Foot Path through the golf course and rejoin the south west coastal path -

Turn left and return to Budleigh .
