Route: From Abbotsbury to Salcombe (Longer Daily Distances)

This itinerary is slightly longer than most of our walkers walk. Whilst you will cover more miles, you will also have less chance to explore the villages you come across or stop and take photographs. About 10% of our walkers choose this pace, and they are normally walkers with plenty of experience of long distance paths. We would not recommend walking this itinerary in winter months, when there is reduced day light hours.
