Easy enough walk but not for anyone with mobility problems perhaps.
Beautiful scenery and little interesting pieces of info along the way. There is a National Trust cafe but it was closed as out of season - November. If you can carry onto Rockford as there is a pub i(The Rockford Inn) w,e did and it's worth it as the couple who run it are amazing characters

We had an enjoyable scroll along here from and back to Lynmouth. As much as we enjoyed it, i think our dog loved it even more and loved running along the stream.

We walked this sort of a circular walk returning via Countisbury hill. Nice walk up the trail to the cafe and waterfall. Unfortunately this was closed following a storm. Steep climb up the hill to Countisbury but rewarded by great views. Found a pub to pop in for a drink which was helpful as cafe had been closed. Good walk for the thighs and calves!

Visited on Monday 30th August 2021 as part of a week-long holiday to Lynmouth inspired by Julia Bradbury's walk along the Watersmeet Trail, from Lynmouth to Watersmeet. We decided to come on this day as the tearoom at the end was only open Thursday to Monday, though this was advertised using a paper on the cheeseboard so may be subject to change. We took the Riverside Walk to the said tearoom and back, but there was a circular route back via a Woodland walk. This isn't the route that Julia Bradbury took as she continued up the side of the valley but she's fitter than me. The walk is about 4 miles on a round trip and follows the river. We had walking sticks & boots but it would have been simple enough without. It really was one of the most beautiful walks we have ever had the pleasure to walk.

Walking heaven for walkers and ramblers, thanks to Julia Bradbury's TV programme.
Starting in Lynmouth the walk aims for Watersmeet House and you can enjoy the woods and the sparkling running waters. Stopping to refuel in the tea garden gives you a burst to tackle the steep climb up on to the edge of Exmoor, conveniently The Blue Ball is an opportunity to catch your breath and take on essential fluid for the last leg, an often perilous trek along the cliff edge path back to Lynmouth.
This walk has the wow factor and the flipping heck factor, not for the unfit plimsoll wearer , casual Sunday stroller or vertigo sufferer.

The walk from Lynmouth to Watersmeet is about two miles both ways and can be uneven in places. A little strenuos if not used to steep inclines but great views of the river. It was in a good flow when we walked it. When arriving at Watersmeet, a NT cafe supplies food and drink with outdoor seating with ample space.
The weather was very kind to us but would imagine that this walk would be unpleasant if raining.

Enjoyable walk which most people should be able to complete. Some nice riverside views can be busy in parts as it is a very popular walk. Some of the trails off it are much more quieter if you want to walk these. Nice cafe for drinks and snacks located on the walk as well. Most people should be able to complete this walk although can be slippery in parts.

I did not actually get to do the trail this time because the parking meters accept cash only, and I did not have cash. They don't even permit you to pay via card online. So, if you want to visit, take cash. I wish I knew in advance. National Trust members do not get free parking here. It is managed by the local council.

We walked to Watersmeet via the riverside walk, which amused us that the signpost saying 1.5 miles was repeated (same distance) after about 1/4 mile! So we became philosophical about the 1.75 miles from Lynton to Watersmeet!
We had a nice latte and cake in café, then walked back via the woodland walk. It's quite uneven terrain so recommend stout footwear... A fair cardio workout and beautiful too.
