9. Croyde to Lynton, North Devon
Although stimulating, this walk is a bit rigorous. Home to delightful woodland pockets, coves and bays, this route also houses the seaside resort of Ilfracombe. Lynton is a small clifftop town that is separated from Lynmouth by a drop of 150 meters. They are connected by a water powered railway. The steep and undulating coastal path features excellent views across to South Wales and the Gower Peninsula.
