Budleigh Salterton, easy walk
What I can always guarantee with my 3 small ones is someone complaining at some point on a walk; its also not distance dependent. Persuading them that there will be some great views of course gets no response but there is enough interest when a stop at a bird hide is mentioned (with a snack thrown in for extra momentum).
The views through the pine trees across to Budleigh seafront are picture perfect. At the bird hide, plenty of opening and shutting the shutters (and yes the promised snack), followed by a look for bats in the bat house at the end of the walk near the estuary head keeps everyone happy. Its an easy stroll and for the hardier would be great to walk on to Ladram Bay, 3miles, or the other way back to Otterton about 1 mile. Here you could stop at the lovely Otterton Mill for refuelling.
- park at White Bridge near South Farm (turn left as you hit Budleigh from East Budleigh)
- signed Pynes Farm Shop from the main road; worth a visit post walk
- fairly level walk and a red Devon clay path
- at the right time of day some great bird spotting (and bat spotting on warm evenings)
