Walking is a great way to explore the Exeter area. Here are a few of our favourite trails.

Follow in the steps of A la Ronde’s two spinster cousins, Jane and Mary Parminter, and enjoy a stroll around the meadow which is rich in flora, fauna and wildlife.

Winding paths through the valley

Teign Gorge classic circuit

Follow the breathtaking Hunters Path high above the river Teign from the imposing bulk of Castle Drogo for chances to spot wildlife and stunning views. There are many places to stop and enjoy a picnic.

The Chapel at Killerton

Two Chapels Walk

This riverside walk takes around 2 hours, giving you time to enjoy both of Killerton's chapels, historic parkland and ancient woodland. It can be muddy in places so is unsuitable for pushchairs.
