As far as distances go, it's much shorter by coastal path than by road, if a bit up and down.
Ilfracombe is a short walk from Mortehoe, via Bennett's Mouth and Lee Bay, which has a quiet charm:
Interesting comments made in the article about the impact Verity coming to Ilfracombe has made to the town.
Here is Verity, she is amazing, and elicits comments from everyone walking past her. I could spend some time there listening to people's reactions.
Ilfracombe is well worth visiting for its many shops, places to eat, tunnels linking beaches, theatre and I'm sure there's much I missed in this short trip.
Walking back was a breeze after a lunch of fresh fish and chips.
