Kinever Valley to Bennett’s Mouth

Commencing from the charming village of Mortehoe, follow the winding road as it leads you into the serene countryside. This delightful walk takes you down a hidden wooded valley, where in winter, delicate snowdrops blanket the ground. As you continue, the path reveals a secret cove by the sea, a tranquil spot where the waves gently kiss the shore.
