Bellevue in the Distance

Difficulty:

Although steep in places this is a most rewarding walk in a most secluded part of Devon.

It takes you through beech woods , along the grand Pig Hotel park and past quaint old thatched cottages .

The church , built in the 15th century, is worth a visit.

You'll find a statue of Henry Beaumont, who probably built the Elizabethan Combe House.

Alfington (5.7 miles)
MAP

Difficulty:

A longer walk to the village of Alfington using public footpaths , bridle ways and old tracks.

It follows part of the Exeter to Honiton long distance hiking route , which runs through Gittisham.

There are no pubs en route but the views are extensive and spectacular.

Part of Landscore Lane, the bridle way down towards Alfington, can become somewhat overgrown.

Alfington's little church is well worth a visit.

From this village there is a steady climb to Bellevue Plantation and a sandy track , in the summer flanked by wild flowers.

traffic Stretches in Alfington have no pavement & the road can be quite busy.
