Carpark: Mortehoe Car Park
Mortehoe Station Rd, Mortehoe, Woolacombe EX34 7DX

Starting and finishing in the quaint town of Woolacombe on the coast. This medium difficulty walk has a solid mix of coast walks and hills for the avid walker.

The National Trust’s Potter’s Hill to Woolacombe Down walk in North Devon has something for everyone, whether you want to hike up to the top or merely potter along the coastal path, the choices are endless…

There is great parking and the gate keeper is very friendly. You will need to walk back to the entrance to start this walk. It is straight uphill from the word go, but head up through the kissing gate and you are well on your way.

There is plenty to look at on this way, a wide variety of flora and fauna as well as some adrenaline junkies if the surf is right! Enjoy the views from the top of Potters Hill then meander through Woolacombe Down and back along the coastal path.
