National Cycle Network Route 27

National Cycle Network Route 27 is a 99 miles long route between Ilfracombe and Plymouth, of which 71 miles are traffic-free. The route combines the beaches and estuaries of North Devon with the lush green valleys of the Torridge, the Tavy, the Walkham and other evocative West Country rivers. The route also skirts round the western flank of Dartmoor offering superb views of Cornwall and the surrounding area. There is also many local links and spurs to explore. Largely tracing the course of former railway lines, the route takes you through tunnels and across the breathtaking viaducts and bridges bequeathed by Victorian railway engineers.

Saltram Park

Saltram Park is centred on the 18th century designed landscape of Saltram which is owned and managed by the National Trust. Saltram is of exceptional interest as evidenced by its inclusion at Grade II* on the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic
interest and the array of listed buildings and structures which add to its uniqueness. The wider landscape of the Countryside Park also contains many historic features and evidence of past land use with fields divided by characteristic Devonshire hedge banks, the presence of quarries, and evidence of orchards, ponds and allotment gardens.
