Set off on your day’s walk and admire the diverse and changing landscapes walking along a cliff top around the village of Ilfracombe and onto Lee Bay. The final section immerses you in the glorious heather, pink thrift and yellow gorse land of Morte Point, a site of special scientific interest. Here you can see the terrain of dunes and estuaries beyond Woolacombe.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
