    A popular cycle route is from Newton Abbot, heading south east along the National Cycle Network 28 towards Torquay, then following the coastal path to Paignton and onto Brixham breakwater.

    Join the Mansands Circular walk from our site and after two miles you have the option to join the coastal path which contours the natural, wild coastline, passing ragged cliffs and sandy beaches.

    Berry Head National Nature Reserve walk is a gentle journey that’s rich in wildlife and where you’ll find Napoleonic war fort remains.
