    This stage gives you a chance to breathe in the fresh sea air and spot rare wildlife — before the challenging terrain returns.

    From Instow, you follow the old railway line along the Tarka Trail to the well-preserved station at East-the-Water, and onto Chudleigh Fort, which is nearby.


    You cross Bideford
