South Devon has some of the finest walking routes in Britain. 

There is a network of footpaths taking you through quaint villages, beside rivers, on beaches and along coastal paths.


The Avon Valley, South West Coast Path and Dartmoor National Park are all easily accessible and offer many peaceful walks and running trails.

In addition, there are several footpaths and walks, of different durations, available directly from Merrifield House.
