Coastal and woodland walks with superb views over the estuary and sea

  • A captivating and rugged stretch of coastline with cliffs, beaches and traditional Devon farmland
  • Long Wood is an ancient oak woodland along the River Dart, with amazing views towards the village of Dittisham
  • Look out for the nationally rare cirl bunting and peregrine falcons and dark green fritillary butterflies along the rugged cliff-tops of Froward Point to Scabbacombe. You may also catch a glimpse of adders and common lizards
  • There is a great spot for birdwatching at the Manslands wetland area
  • At Woodhuish see the recently renovated 19th-century cider press, where there is also an organic farm with traditional breeds, such as North Devon cattle and Hebridean sheep 

What's on?

Our rangers lead events from March to October where you can learn new skills and join them for walks.

This winter join them at Coleton Fishacre for a candlelit walk of the gardens.

There will also be kayaks available to explore the cove with; all you need to do is rock up.


Green infrastructure

We're working with partners including Natural England, Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust, Teignbridge, South Hams and Torbay Councils and South Hams AONB to deliver green infrastructure strategies.

There are so many great places to explore in the area, and a number of National Trust car parks to use as your base. Find out where our car parks are located, and what's near to them.
