HIKING TRAILS ENGLAND, Devonshire ( Jurassic Coast)

A five day walk  through the county of Devonshire

A five day walk  through the county of Devonshire. Three days along the South West Coast Path (Jurassic coast) and two days from the East Devon-way. As usual in England the route is very well marked and rarely goes over asphalt.
Getting there: a flight to Exeter, the bus to the bus station and a bus to Exmouth (35 min.). Here we started our hike. You also can go by train to Exmouth ( Exeter city - Exmouth).
Maps: we used the Ordnance Survey Explorer maps nrs. 115 and 116, scale 1:25.000.
Accommodation: the B&B’s, guesthouses, hotels, what ever you want ( to pay).

On trail: the coast with the jagged cliffs (World Heritage list), in which you can see how it is created during millions of years, the coast path with almost all the time sight on the beach and the see. Day 2 is filled with ascending and descending. The route to Lyme Regis goes through National Nature Reserve Downland Cliffs: a wooded area.
The East Devon-way leads along farmland and authentic villages, quiet river valleys and welcoming villages.
