I walked this route from Barnstaple to Northam. The first portion is on the Tarka trail, which is easy from a surface and navigation perspective but loses a star due to volume of bike traffic, making this very unrelaxing a route. I preferred the section after this, heading up to Northam on footpaths and small roads....
Northam to Bideford is along some roads, and footpaths, but just after Bideford the route follows the Tarka Trail and coast path to Barnstaple....
Much of it is wooded, and despite being an urban walk, it feels like you are out in the country, be prepared for rough, stony pathways....
