Basset Hound Walkers Exmouth

Once upon a time, this was our Basset walk at Exmouth. Can we recapture this excitement again?

This will be the sixth time we have hit Exmouth - which along with Burnham beach - seems to attract the most hounds. As high tide that day is 10.06 we may have to do the clifftop first, returning via the beach to get round the point. Those who've done the walk before will know that we have a good half-mile walk along the grassy Maer before we have to decide which route to take.

The whole walk is just four miles with a café at half way round, so only two really . . .

Directions to the start are: Follow the A376 right in to Exmouth (keeping to right at traffic lights). At the roundabout by station and Marks & Spencer, go right at the 2nd exit and follow signs to seafront. Drive along the front, past the Premier Inn. Look for a new water sports centre on your right just before a Z bend. If you drive past the Z bend you've missed the entrance (on your left).

Meet at 10.30 as usual. The photos below were taken in November 2020 on our last walk so things may have changed since then.

Go straight across the mini-roundabout by Ocean.

The road has been altered here, giving way to the development of a new water-sports centre.

And here is the car park entrance, just before the Amusements.
