From the Lorna Doone car park turn left and walk up the road. (Immediately on your left hand side is a gate with a permissive path marked. You can avoid the toll by walking up the road). Walk along this road for about 400 metres until you get to a bend in the road with a bridleway marked 'Badgworthy Valley' on your left hand side.

2

Follow this bridleway up river for 1km, keeping the river on your left hand side until you reach a footbridge. Cross over it to Cloud Farm.

At the footbridge cross over to Cloud Farm.

From here please return the way you came by crossing back over the footbridge. (You can return a different way by not crossing over the footbridge and instead walking up to the farm house, and then turn left to take the farm track back down to Malmsmead. If you take this route upon reaching the road turn left, cross the stone bridge and follow the road around to the Lorna Doone car park). When the footpath reaches the road follow this downhill back to the car park.
