Discover the gateway to the famous Jurassic Coast

Follow a clifftop walk with breathtaking views of the Jurassic coast with a night under the stars at Prattshayes caravan and campsite.

Exmouth countryside includes the impressive headland walk at Orcombe Point, the warm and friendly campsite and bunkhouse at Prattshayes and our tenanted farm at Lower Halsdon on the River Exe. An easy, level path above the beach at Exmouth is a peaceful haven from the holidaying crowds.

Look out for events happening at Lower Halsdon Farm, including hedge-laying, ranger walks and farm open days.

Situated on the pretty River Exe and right next to the Exe Trail (cyclepath and walkway), Lower Halsdon has an enviable position on the outskirts of Exmouth. A la Ronde, another Trust property, is nearby and we are keen to look at new ways to provide some access to this area.

Orcombe Point

The Geoneedle is made from the different rocks along the Jurassic Coast

Orcombe Point marks the most westerly point of the world famous Jurassic coast. Standing at the summit is the five metre high stone sculpture known as the Geoneedle, cleverly sculptured from all the rocks found along this unique coast.


Good accomodation at the converted barn at Prattshayes

Tucked away a mile or so from the beaches at Exmouth, is the small and friendly campsite and bunkhouse at Prattshayes. The campsite closes in September but the bunkhouse is open all year.

At this time of year Orcombe Point is abundant with wildflowers and buzzing insects. There are plenty of benches for you to sit back and enjoy the tranquility after climbing up from the beach. Look out for some new information posts to find out more about these world famous cliffs.

Explore Exmouth on foot

Travel along the red sandstone coastline returning inland with a visit to Maer Local Nature Reserve. This 4.3 mile (7km) walk explores the wilder side of Exmouth.

This is a South West Coast Path suggested trail.
