The Wester Wood route is a fairly easy Lynmouth walk. This 3 mile trail mostly sticks to quiet footpaths and country lanes but includes the odd climb and descent along the way. It’s worth noting that this isn’t a great walk for those who struggle with heights, as some parts of it follow very narrow paths with sharp sea drops below.
This walk starts on the right hand layby near Countisbury Hill on the A29. Walkers will need to cross the road and find the path opposite that links to the South West Coast Path to start the walk. It is important not to take the path to the left that appears around halfway along if you wish to follow this trail, but if you do fancy a detour it leads to Sillery Sands, a beach with some fascinating rock formations to discover.
