Watersmeet is very close to Lynton and Lynmouth in Devon where the East Lyn River is joined by Hoar Oak Water creating walks of outstanding natural beauty and a real treat for any walker.

After heavy rain the night before the waterfalls were gushing and the weather in the valleys was very damp so I made sure I had a good waterproof jacket on and my sturdy walking boots to avoid slipping on the pathways and tracks of this particular walking route.

From the car park at Combe Park I walked across the bridge and continued to walk along the public bridleway on the east bank of the river. I continued down this pathway to Watersmeet to then cross the footbridge to Watersmeet House.

At Watersmeet House I took the public footpath to walk along the east bank of the river to splendid views early on as the river dropped away to look down the steep wooded valley. The pathway is then very easy to follow and quite level so I walked very happily until I reached Wester Wood.

I continued to walk straight ahead until I reached Lynmouth where I then found a pathway opposite the church in the village centre which zigged and zagged steeply uphill through Lyn Cleave where I then reached the rocky summit at Oxen Tor. Catching my breath it was taken away again by the awesome views.

I then joined the walking routes of the Two Moors Way and Tarka Trail to Myrtleberry Cleave where I then walked left at the fork and back down to Watersmeet House a good 6 miles or so later taking me just over 2 hours.
