South West Coastal Path Walk from Woolacombe to Ilfracombe

Within easy reach of the cottage is the South West Coastal Path, although parts of it can be quite challenging...
One sunny April day, we embarked on the 10 mile walk from Woolacombe to Ilfracombe, forgetting that North Devon is so much much hillier than Essex! There were parts when it felt that we couldn’t possibly climb any higher to find we were going back down again to repeat the ups and downs many more times. It was however, a beautiful springtime walk, with a tea break at Lee Bay and chatting to other walkers along the path... until we eventually reached lively Ilfracombe. After a wonder around the harbour and fish and chips sitting on the wall, we caught sight of the Wetherspoons roof top terrace and settled there for a drink or two before getting the bus back!.
