Sheep grazing on Morte Point

Sheep grazing on Morte Point

 

The Southwest Coast path running from Lee to Morte Point and on to Woolacombe, you should be prepared for a roller-coaster of a walk in places and to have your breath stolen away in others just by the views.

In a few sections there are strenuous flights of steps leading in and out of the valleys on the way, as you make your way towards the lighthouse at Bull Point. The path is well signposted. At the beach at Rockham Bay, though there a few steep steps down to the beach, you can spend a little time cooling your feet when the tide is right. From here the coast path runs along the ancient slate bedded and jagged ridge towards Morte Point.

Head back inland to take the opportunity to explore Mortehoe, a pretty place with places to eat, Mortehoe is just slightly inland from the coast path. All perfect for a Devon walking holiday.

 


Fab campsite, excellent facilities and a nice atmosphere
