Walking trail

Galmpton to Greenway walk via Mill Lane

Walking trail

Wander quiet country lanes and open farmland, enjoying views up the River Dart estuary on your walk to Greenway House. Part of this walk is along a beach foreshore which is covered when the tide is in, but if you're feeling confident you can take of your shoes and socks and wade - or wait for the tide to go out. This walk can be combined with Hook Bottom walk as well as the Coombe Lane walk to create various circular routes back to Gamlpton.
