Hembury Fort

    Beautiful walk through a woodland trail. It’s a magical place. There are great views of the surrounding countryside & even to the coast of a clear day. In Spring the woods are covered in bluebells.

    There are two walks from the car park.

    Woodland Trail – (same side of the road as the car park) Head out in an anti-clockwise direction (it’s an easier walk this way) and head through the gorgeous woodland and past some rope swings that are good fun!.

    Hembury Hill Fort (head across the road from the car park ) takes you on a circular route around the top of the plateau of Hembury Fort. The views here are amazing and far reaching, on a clear day you can see the coast.

    The Hillfort is considered the finest prehistoric hillfort in Devon, and excavations have revealed Iron Age and Roman occupation.
