Time to walk, surf and kayak!
We’re ‘bigging up’ Devon this month as part of a series of ‘what’s on and what to do’ blogs for the Westcountry.
Elsie lived in Devon for more than 20 years at the end of her life but when she was younger she also worked in Exeter as a seamstress. Although she would not have been surfing or kayaking she did enjoy a nice walk so that’s where we’ll start…
Walking - Potter’s Walk
Located on Dartmoor from Fernworthy Reservoir to Thornworthy, Potter’s Walk is a great route for those looking for a flat walk with no steps, gates or styles. With bird hides, trout fishing and Canada geese all nearby, Potters Walk also has lots of ideal spots for a family picnic and also has public toilet facilities and disabled parking bays. With a distance of just 0.75 miles this is an easy walk and perfect for admiring nature and wildlife.
Surfing - Surf South West
For those looking to catch a wave, Surf South West run surf lessons, surfing courses and surf holidays at Croyde Bay and Saunton Sands, North Devon. Offering lessons for all levels including ‘learn to surf’ beginner surfing lessons, tips on overcoming bad surfing habits and ways to improve and excel, Surf South West is proud to be the first surf school to be awarded the highest Level 4 status by the British Surfing Association. Half a day surfing lesson start from £34.
Watersports - Sea Kayak Devon
What better way to see the sea than from a boat. Sea Kayak Devon offers guided sea kayak trips, a unique way to experience the South Devon coast while learning a new skill. With the chance to see secluded beaches, spectacular sea cliffs and beautiful wooded estuaries, Devon Sea Kayaking is a great way to discover many hidden or often inaccessible spots along with lots of local wildlife – and the possibility of seeing seals. No experience is necessary and individuals, groups and families are all welcome to partake in day-trips, full taster sessions, wilderness expeditions and skills courses. Half a day taster sessions from £45 per adult.
