Leaving Torcross enjoy a walk along the shingle of a long flat beach passing Slapton Ley, Devon’s largest natural freshwater lake. Heading inland ascend through pastures and sheltered woodlands, before descending down to isolated coves. Passing through the village of Stoke Fleming, you will then reach the popular boating town of Dartmouth, with its castle, cobbled streets, unusual shops and restaurants.
