Walks in the English Riviera

In 2020 we'll be bringing a new walking programme around the English Riviera. It's an opportunity to take a moment, breath in the fresh air and relax in the outdoors. With guided walks, self led trails and a friendly team of walking partners and volunteers, there's a walk for you.

Winter at Saltram 

Winter is a great time to get your wellies or running shoes on and enjoy Saltram. Snowdrop spotting followed by a garden trail, finished off with a warm cuppa in the café sounds like the perfect day out.
