Total distance about 13 km (8 miles) with 389 m (1276 feet) of assent. Approximately 6 hours including a beach visit. Some paths are uneven and may be boggy in wet conditions.

Meet travelling ODL members on holiday from up north on this walk!

We meet at the entrance to The Donkey Sanctuary, Sidmouth to walk inland along country lanes to Branscombe and return along the cliff top paths via Weston Mouth beach.

Some of us will arrive an hour before the walk start time for a cooked breakfast at the Donkey Sanctuary cafe where you can watch the donkeys while you eat. Please join us if you wish.

Branscombe is beautiful, famous for being the longest village in England and for the MSC Napoli shipwreck during a huge storm in January 2007. The vessel, carrying over 2,300 containers, was severely damaged and beached at Branscombe. Hundreds of people plundered the scattered goods, including motorcycles!

There will be time to stop for an Ice Cream before we loop round through the village and head back along the cliff top back along the coastal path to Weston Mouth where we will stop for a swim at the clothing optional beach!

From the beach we head up the hill back to the The Donkey Sanctuary to explore the gardens and maybe get lost in the maze. 

Dogs are welcome but owners must ensure they are kept under control at all times.
