Take Time Out to Connect with Nature

11 May 2021

This week marks Mental Health Awareness week, so what better time to head out and explore the South West to connect with nature.

According to the Mental Health Foundation, 45% of us found that walking outside has been one of the top coping strategies during the pandemic,  so why not take some much-needed time out and travel to our favourite walking spots?


We've curated 3 popular walks accessible by bus you can take across Devon, so no need to face the stress of traffic, just head out and enjoy yourself. 

  

 

Woodbury Common Circular (4.5 miles) 

With stunning views of the Exe Estuary, this 4.5 mile walk starts at Woodbury Castle car park and follows tracks to Woodbury village. Our 56 bus serves Woodbury, just a short walk away from the start point.
