A lovely loop walk with a short hill, beautiful views of Exeter, a field to run around (or take a short cut through) and animals to see.
No longer a quarry and no longer a green space, the walk now goes round a building site for 380 homes, a Geopark and a wildlife site. However, don’t let this deter you as the glimpses of the building site currently really don’t detract form the walk, and if you’re little one is into diggers (who’s isn’t) then its an added bonus!
Perfect length for little legs to enjoy. The initial hill opens out into a large field; while this can be cut through to make the walk shorter, the view just keeps getting better so stick with it if you can. The walk continues round Pinhoe church where Llamas enjoy the field opposite and horses are in a field just a little further along.
The paths are not particularly pram friendly, but with determination and an all terrain buggy they could be doable. However, there are kissing gates at the start and end of the walk and in the middle by the church that would not let a pram through.
