we walked part of this way in the Quantock Hills. It is not too demanding, and is pleasant accessible countryside. You need a good map, as there are several choices of paths on the hills, and not always a lot to go on it terms of distinguishing landmarks.

The 51 miles is worth every step. Stunning views, great scenery, challenging in places, but worth it for a sense of achievement at the end. Recommend you walk from Nether Stowey to Lynmouth, as the final part from Oare to Lynmouth will be the most picturesque 6 mile walk you'll probably do. Don't forget to visit the Tourist Information in Lynmouth to sign the register to say that you've completed it

There's no particular site reference for this particular spot by a small park down the road by a little park (and easy to miss if nobody's nearby to assist. I speak of it because here my wife and I met two wonderful English ladies with whom we engaged in a leisurely chat covering many favorite nearby sites. I was very proud that they were willing to take seriously some English touring ideas coming from a New York Yankee. While together they took notes pledging to make a three day weekend excursion inclusive of an arena beyond county. This little cottage fronting castle ruins just behind has its own little bridge over a dedicated moat. It's all quite ostensibly charming and may be rented for a near amazing number of pounds per night. The fronting gate posts a number to call if interested. Beyond the attractiveness of a personal moat experience, none of us could imagine why someone might want to invest in such an experience at the tariff these two natives suggested was the going rate. To each his/her own fits that circumstance nicely.

We didn't have the time nor the fitness to walk all along this route but we were able to see a short part of it . We parked in the National Trust car park at Holford intending to do the Woodland Hill circular walk but this was very poorly signposted. We ended up on the Heath above Holford and enjoyed stunning views over open moorland and the coast. The huge ants nests and massive ants to be seen on the way down are quite amazing. Taking a good map is essential as are walking boots and warm clothing for when the sea mists close in.

Two newly retired couples walked this path in early Autumn. We were very lucky with the weather - just caught the windy end of Hurricane Ophelia on the final day. So dry throughout. The walk is stunning. The paths are varied, the habitats change, it mainly uses very old paths and walkways. Sheer delight. We broke the walk into 4 stages. Staying locally we moved cars daily. Remember that if you stay close to one end, you end up driving 50 miles which takes a good hour before and after your walk! This gives you a real sense of achievement. Day 1 - Nether Stowey to Stamford Brett. Day 2 - Stamford Brett to Road to Lype Farm off B3224 - the Coleridge Way crosses this road and there is a convenient lay-by. Day 3 - From the lay-by to Worthy Toll Rd - on SW Coastpath west of Porlock. Again a space for the car was available. Day 4 - From Worthy Toll Rd - Sea front car park in Lynmouth. Main points of note 1. Use any loos that you see, they are few and far between. 2. Download the QR app so that you can scan the codes on the posts. It gives you single lines of poetry - not sure all the poetry was Coleridges - Autumn leaves scrunch like cornflakes....??? But it does provide conversation. 3. Take a selfie as you set off to prove that you have done the walk as you can claim a certificate at Lynmouth visitor centre at the end. Day 1 - There is a good bench with fantastic views opposite St Audries for lunch. Pub in Bicknoller - complete with chickens in the garden was a worthwhile mini detour. Day 2 - Notley Arms in Monksilver another good stop for morning coffee - the walk up after is quite a pull. Valient Soldier at Roadwater - landlord very kindly let us eat our own lunch by the stream (we did buy drinks) Rewarded ourselves with a pot of tea at Luxborough Arms. Day 3 - Only real hiccup with path finding in Cutcombe, the path turns right and the sign is missing. We did report this - (we were asked) at the Visitor Centre in Lynmouth at the end of the walk to collect our certificates. Beautiful climb round Dunkery. Used tea gardens at Horner for afternoon tea and ice-creams. Lots of places to eat in Porlock. Day 4 - Visited Oare Church as a small detour - well worth it. Again a minor detour for lunchtime drinks the landlord at The Staghunters Inn let us eat our lunch by the river Lynn, he did tempt us by saying some customers had seen otters and kingfishers, but we weren't that lucky. A fabulous walk that deserves to be more famous - didn't see any other path walkers, only some school children doing their DofE expeditions. So pleased that we completed this walk in 4 days, it made it feel really special.
