Watersmeet Trail

This walk starts in Lynmouth and is well sign posted throughout. It takes you on a walk alongside the East Lyn River. There is a National Trust cafe at the end with a nice outdoor seating area overlooking the river. The total walk there and back to Lynmouth took us about 2.5hrs, which included a few stops along the way to let the dog have a swim.
