Fabulous Walk in the sunshine

Walked from Woodcombe to Porlock Weir in the sunshine for a pub lunch at the Ship and caught the bus back yesterday. Took just over two hours although others would probably spend more time enjoying the fabulous views across Exmoor.

Video attached shows the panorama from Grabbist Hill opposite Woodcombe Lodges across the moor below Dunkery Beacon and down to Porlock Bay and the sea. The walk took me through Selworthy past the famous white Church of All Saints and the Periwinkle tea rooms, through to Bossington for a loo break and Kitnors (tea rooms) and across the Porlock Marshes to the harbour at Porlock Weir. The buses run every two hours so plan your timing.

Plenty of fabulous walks from our self catering accommodation and availability throughout the year although August is now getting tight and the late May bank holiday is full.
