Devon is a beautiful county for walkers and offers a wide variety of different walks. Newton Abbot is an ideal base to access all types of walks.
The temporary car park at WBB works on Exeter Road between Newton Abbot and Kingsteignton makes an ideal stopping off place to take a wander through fields beside the River Teign. An easy, flat walk great for small children and very popular with dog walkers.
Many towns and villages through out Devon have heritage trails which make enjoyable walking and give the visitor a chance to learn about the surrounding countryside and take in some local history.
Half of the area of South Devon has environmental protection due to the landscape value and amenities offered to both locals and visitors.
Every year there is a walking festival offering guided and self-guide walks. In 2009 between 2nd and 11th October, South Devon areas of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) offers 40 guided walks. All different and for all ages and abilities and some walks designed for families. The walks will be either along estuaries or coastal paths or through the countryside.
