This stage showcases the beautifully-contrasting landscapes of the Hartland Peninsula.
From Clovelly, you descend through ancient woodland to Blackchurch Rock. This magnificent natural rock arch is filled with fossils and is situated in an area with a rich smuggling heritage.
You emerge from the woodland into lush farmland pastures and can experience wonderful views out to sea.
On reaching Hartland Point, the landscape becomes more wild and dramatic as you follow the rocky coastline to Hartland Quay. During the winter months, you might see grey seals in this area when they come ashore to breed.
This stage finishes in Hartland Quay, which experiences some of the roughest seas along this section of coastline. There is not much at the former port, so have a research and book in advance.
