What to expect:
This stunning walk forms a figure-eight with Croyde as its centre. The walk will lead you out to the impressive rocky outcrop of Baggy Point and across the beautifully sandy Croyde beach, along the Southwest Coast Path and along round Saunton Down before climbing on to the top of the down for some impressive and memorable panoramic views. The walk then descends back down to Croyde Village where there will be a chance to stop off for refreshments and public facilities before finishing back up at the NT car park.
The walk will meet and start off at the National Trust Car Park at the bottom of Baggy Point. Wear sensible walking boots, bring weather appropriate clothing, snacks and water and your binoculars.
The walk is a relatively long walk, approx. 4hrs with some gradual steep assents and descents so suitable for able-bodied people only. Walking poles might be useful.
Dogs welcome ( banned from Croyde beach from the day after the walk, 1st may ) but need to be kept on a short lead as will be crossing farmland with livestock.
