  Hunters Inn to Trentishoe Walk - Approx 3 miles

The Route: Start the walk at Hunters Inn and take the track that runs along the right-hand side of the inn as you look at it following the sign to Heddons Mouth. After a short while the path divides, take the left hand fork down towards the river. Keep taking the left forks until the path reaches the river. Cross the river when you reach the little stone bridge go up the hill and bear left and follow the sign posts to “coast path Combe Martin”.

After a short while take a sharp right turn steeply up the hill on the signposted path just before a small bench. Climb through the woods and steeply up zig-zagging up the hill with spectacular views over Heddons Mouth and back over Heddons Valley.

Continue along the path taking care around the point and along the narrow clifftop path admiring the views over the sea. Continue until you reach a path to your left signposted Trentishoe Church, bear left here and head along the valley with spectacular views over Heddon Valley and Hunters Inn. Continue along the path until you reach a small lane, turn left down the hill and continue back along the lane to Hunters Inn.
