Walk 1 Bickleigh Castle (5.4 miles)
This moderate walk follows part of the scenic Exe Valley Way and passes Bickleigh Castle with its 6th century chapel,arguably the oldest building in Devon - access by appointment only.
During the Winter months wellies are strongly recommended.
There are no pubs en route and the walk has one steep climb.

Walk 3 via Cadeleigh (5.1 miles)
A most delightful walk of moderate difficulty to Cadeleigh - after a wet spell stretches along the river need wellies.
There is still a pub in Cadeleigh, the Cadeleigh Arms ,now owned by the community and well worth a visit!
