Outdoorlads will be spending this weekend at the National Trust Bunkhouse at Watersmeet.

If you're nearby and would like to join us for the Saturday day walk, please feel free to come along.

Please note, if you're already signed up for the full Bunkhouse weekend, you do NOT need to sign up to this event - this is only for those people who might be nearby want to come along for the day but not stay for the weekend.

The day walk will start at the Bunkhouse and then we'll be following the East Lyn River eastwards past Watersmeet up the valley towards Leeford before crossing to the Coastal Path and heading back via the Foreland Point Lighthouse.

The walk will be around 8 and a half miles with some pretty steep climbs along the coastal path.

Dogs

Dogs are welcome to join us on this event however please note dogs are NOT allowed inside the Bunkhouse where we'll be meeting up at the start of the day and where we finish.

We also ask the following:

  • Please appreciate the fact that not everyone is a dog owner or lover- especially when we stop to eat
  • Please ensure you adhere to the Countryside Code at all times - see (Keeping Dogs Under Effective Control)

If your dog is uncontrolled and strays in open land frightening other animals or livestock, the leader is supported by the OutdoorLads board of trustees to ask you to leave the event as this is not acceptable behaviour.
