Accessible walks along the coast Budleigh Salterton and the Otter Estuary

About this route

Three Walks using the South West Coast Path that are likely to be suitable for people with impaired mobility or a pushchair, wheelchair, or mobility scooter.

A selection of short easy walks from the Lime Kiln car park in Budleigh Salterton offering excellent views and bird watching opportunities. The first walk (¼ mile) is along the seafront to the town centre. The second (½ mile each way) is along a sea wall alongside the Otter estuary, which now provides a level path from which to watch the birds of the estuary. The final walk (¼ mile) is along a spit of shingle between the sea and the estuary.
