Episode 5: Cornwall and Devon Walks with Julia Bradbury

In this week’s Cornwall and Devon Walks, Julia Bradbury is walking in South Devon taking on a section of the South West Coast Path from the affluent coastal town of Salcombe to rugged Prawle Point.

Julia samples world-famous Salcombe crab, rambles the coast in search of wildlife with naturalist Claire and meets one of the volunteers of the National Coast watch, who helps prevent shipwrecks on this dramatic and stunning stretch of coast.

If you want to follow in Julia’s footsteps on this route, we recommend staying at the Waterman Arms near Totnes or Bayards Cove Inn in Dartmouth.

The Watermans Arms is a 17th Century riverside inn hidden in a valley at the head of Bow Creek. It boasts 15 stunning bedrooms, a beamed bar, open fires, terrace and delicious local food. Many of the rooms have views over the river and surrounding countryside and dogs are welcome to stay if you enquire in advance.

Bayards Cove Inn is a stunning coastal pub which serves highly regarded gastro style food. It has the look and feel of a boutique hotel, whilst retaining the service and charm of a local inn. Children are always welcome with menus just for them and a free crab bucket and line in each room as well as a guide to the best crabbing hotspots along Dartmouth’s waterfront. There are seven comfortable and stylishly appointed bedrooms, two of which are large suites suitable for families and they can provide dog beds, locally-made doggy treats and bowls if you are bringing along your four legged friend.

Stay in a Pub is a partner of The Outdoor Guide (TOG), an online resource set up by Julia Bradbury and her sister Gina that aims to bring together information for walks all around the UK. Together we work to inspire people to get out and explore our wonderful country and what better base than to stay in a great British pub.
