You have a choice of three equally interesting routes between our two cottages, each off road and fabulously scenic….we couldnt pick a favourite!
We will carry your bags ….just leave them in the hall at Buchan Cottage and they will be there to greet you at Spindrift Barn (or vice versa!).
We can also provide a picnic, or you can browse the bakers, farm shop and delicatessen in Dulverton and create your own.
Then you are free to enjoy whichever route you choose, with our comprehensive guide, map and compass provided. (we can guide you if you prefer)
1) Court Down and Summerway,
Lunch at the Royal Oak, Winsford or picnic and stay in the Exe river valley for an easy stroll via the historic farmsteads of Nethercote and Lyncombe.
Ascend from Nethercote up around the Punchbowl for a picnic and fabulous views before dropping down into the Barle valley to Dulverton.
A walk along the Barle River crossing by the medieval clapper bridge at Tarr Steps, lunch or tea at the Tarr Farm Inn and then to Withypool, with its tea Rooms and The Royal Oak Pub (more refreshment!!) Wend your way up and over Room Hill then down the Exe Valley Way to Spindrift.
