Dart Valley Trail, South Devon
One of the most popular walks in Devon, the Dart Valley Trail runs 16mi (26km) from Totnes to Dartmouth and the Kingswear Peninsula, via the villages of Ashprington, Cornworthy and Dittisham. If you’d rather walk a shorter section, Totnes to Dittisham is just over 8mi (13km), Dittisham to Dartmouth 3mi (5km), and Greenway to Kingswear just over 4mi (6km). It’s worth a stop-off at the Sharpham Trust retreat centre in Ashprington; it does great cream teas. And there’s Agatha Christie’s former holiday home, Greenway, a glorious 18th-century Georgian house now run by the National Trust.
