Clovelly to Hartland Quay. Day 9

An “easy” 10 .5 miles today as welcomed friends from the Sidmouth Strollers, Chris, Sue, Barry and Michelle who joined us for the walk to Hartland Quay.

Once out of the village it was a steady climb to Gallantry Bower through mature woodland as we made our way to Windbury Point, with some damp weather but not too much rain, and we could look back to Blackchurch Rock. Having made a couple of climbs, the path levels out for a few miles before we made Hartland Point where we came across a tea stop and helicopter rides going out to Lundy.

After Hartland Point the path made some climbs and descents but gave some views of the dramatics rock formations on the coast. From here we could see the Hartland Quay Hotel perched on the Cliff edge which was to be our base for the night, about an hours walk away

We checked in, planned the next days walk and obviously went straight to bed to prepare for one of the big walks tomorrow- 15 miles to Bude (we may have had some food and a few drinks first).

  2. Hi everyone. Hope all went well today from Clovelly to Braunton, it sounded strenuous so hope you were all ok and are not too tired to eat and have your ‘planning meeting’ no doubt you fuelled up on lunch and cream teas at some stage during the day!!! Hope all your boots are being kind to your feet and not too many problems!! Good to see Tommy has changed his socks!!! I see Fluff and Gareth are back in the pack, must have been dumped by Thelma and the mermaid, aaah! Take care, walk safely. Love Linda xx

  3. Morning all. Well you are on the homeward path for sure now. One of the longest days out of the way and THE longest today. You have been so lucky with the weather yet again – lets hope it keeps that way!!!??? Boscastle tonight, sounds a lovely place. It’s a piece of cake (with jam and cream on of course) after this!! Take care all of you. Lotsa luv Mary xxx
