Ilfracombe: Torrs Walk
The Torrs walk to Wildersmouth beach in Ilfracombe is a 30 mins walk and a one hour round trip. The walk takes you along the south-west coastal path, which is the longest in England stretching 630 miles, you can check out more about the history on the southwest coastal site. The walk takes you through a small forest towards a coastal path, giving you the option to either go to Lee village or into Ilfracombe. Once you have taken in the views, you take a short road walk to the Jubilee gardens towards the beach. Here are the highlights of the trip.
The car park is free, which is nice if you want to take a stroll into town and get a bite to eat, without worrying about getting back to the car.
The walk combines a mini forest and a beach, so provides shade for your dog as well as a place to cool off.
The coastal scenery is ideal for selfies.
There are doggy bins in the park leading to the beach.
The town provides information posters you can read about the wildlife, area and the unusual sculpture by the harbour.
There is more than one dog-friendly pub to choose from.
Daisy rewards this place 3 paw prints:
1: For easy access to the beach without doggy restrictions.
2: Free car park, so more treats for her.
3: For the combination of forest and beach in one walk.
The walk loses two paw prints because she had to walk along a road (makes her anxious) and the coastal path meant we couldn’t throw the ball for her.
