This wonderful dog walk will take you out into the fresh country air and really give you an opportunity to get the blood pumping with steep ascents, steps and descents to challenge you along the way.  Adventurers will be rewarded with the discovery of some hidden beaches along the way and for those who enjoy a bit of history, discover why Morte Point has been responsible for many a shipwreck throughout the centuries.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Saunton Sands

A short drive or long walk along the South West Coast Path and you arrive at stunning Saunton Sands.  This particular beach is a favourite for dog walks as it welcomes dogs year round. Saunton Sands employs easy to follow zoning sections where just the car park and first 5 minutes of your stroll requires that your dog is kept on the lead.  From here you have the next 3.5 miles of golden sands to explore and enjoy with your four legged friend.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Hillsborough Nature Reserve

Known to the locals as ‘the sleeping elephant’, Hillsborough Nature Reserve offers a short but testing walk for you and your dog.  This dog walk takes you past beaches which are also dog friendly so offers plenty of opportunity for a run and a dip in the sea for both of you – especially welcome during those warm summer months! The views provided by this dog walk are glorious – a bird’s eye view of Ilfracombe, out to Lundy Island and even as far as the South Wales coast.  There is so much for nature lovers to enjoy along the way too with an array of wildlife and their habitats to be seen.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

Baggy Point

As well as providing a dog friendly route, Baggy Point is also an easy access route which is especially important in opening up our beautiful countryside walks to as many people as possible.  Considered an easy route, Baggy Point lends itself to those pups who cannot manage a challenging route but still enjoy the great outdoors.  It is also considered equally good for young children. Baggy Point might be a shorter, easier dog walk than others on our list, but nonetheless it delivers in breathtaking sights.  The views along the way extend along the coast and out to sea and you can also enjoy sightings of our diverse wildlife and sealife – there’s plenty to keep everyone captivated along the way.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
