Walking in Devon
You don’t have to venture far from the hotel to enjoy a leisurely walk. The Deer Park’s surrounding 80 acres of grounds provides the perfect place for walking. For a riverside walk, take the Otter Trail, which takes you along the River Otter in a loop back to the hotel. Alternatively walk through woodland along the Bluebell Walk which is of course better enjoyed in the spring when the bluebells and daffodils are in full bloom.
For walks further afield please see the following:
Exmouth to Sidmouth
This 13 mile route offersgentle walking out of Exmouth as it enters the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Geoneedle at Orcombe Point marks the beginning of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. This beautiful and dramatic stretch of coast is of international importance and provides walkers with an incredibly special sense of time: endurance as well as transience.

Sidmouth to Seaton
Walking through the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is impressive at any time of year and in any weather conditions. There are some especially beautiful stretches here and so the many steep ascents and descents are certainly well worth the effort. The route is 10 miles and is quite strenuous according to the South West Coast Path website.
With ancient woodland, rolling hills and stone settlements dating back to the Stone Age, Dartmoor National Park provides a wide range of walks for all abilities.
