Following the launch of Walking Devon www.walkingdevon.org we have just held our first event.
The inaugural Walking Devon event was successfully completed last month with a group of friends wanting a mix of Dartmoor and the South West Coast Path.
The friday evening was spent reaquainting themselves over a firepit cooked paella and Atlantic spirit Gin on the banks of the Torridge and much frivolity.
The sun came out for them as they spent the Saturday on an 8 mile walk from Widecombe to The Warren House Inn taking in Hound Tor and Jays Grave, and home for a BBQ. On returning to the Hadlow Lime Kilns various aching muscles were relaxed on the lawn with a post walk yoga session delivered by Chloe Gibb (www.greenheartdevon.com).
After a good nights sleep, the Sunday was spent on the South West Coast Path with a little saunter from Bucks Mills along the Hobby Drive to Clovelly where a final rehydration took place at the Red lion!
Once back at Hadlow the wives and children joined them for a Sunday afternoon of pizzas on the lawn from the wood fired oven before venturing homeward, a very happy and succesful weekend.
