Slow Ways linking Parracombe and Barnstaple, Ilfracombe, Lynmouth, Simonsbath

England / Devon / Parracombe

Parracombe’s four Slow Ways are 75% checked

Help connect Parracombe

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Parracombe’s Slow Ways.

That said, even a significant deviation from the route isn't going to cause big problems, as the field boundary edge isn't far away and works as a good handrail to get to the correct corner....

The first 300 metre ascent from Lynmouth to Lynton and deeper into Exmoor was strenuous, but I'd do it again! Loved the stunning views of the coast and the shops in Lynton....

This is a good route and quite possibly the best way to walk between Parracombe and Lynmouth....

I really enjoyed the deep and old holloways, a few of which were also streams on the day we walked this route. I think another good route option could duck into the middle of Combe Martin. I'd 100% recommend this route and walk it again....

I really enjoyed this route walking from Parracombe to Barnstaple (less uphill). After Twitchen however the walk really improves. The route goes through Bratton Fleming, where there is a shop, but not directly on the route. There is a short bit of road walking in Bratton, which isn't ideal. The walk into Barnstaple is pretty good as it is mostly off road....

You can't access the reservoir trails where the route says, you have to walk on to the car park....

I walked this route from Parracombe to Lynmouth and really enjoyed it. After this, the route is along lanes, which are sometimes lined by hedgerow, sometimes open with great views....

Then the route heads towards Combe Martin and sea views. Combe Martin is roughly half way, and the route passes The Pack of Cards pub, as it cuts across town. The first being between Combe Martin and Berrynarbor....
