Imagine a walkerís paradise - beautiful, tranquil, majestic yet also dramatic and wild, with a magnificent coastal path plus some of the best beaches in the country. Well that paradise is right here. With spectacular contrasts in scenery, North Devon offers incredible attractions for families and groups of friends looking for an active and interesting day out. Two outstanding Heritage Coasts, the stunning Tarka Trail and the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve at Braunton Burrows make it one of the most enticing landscapes in the UK to discover. In this book there are ten rambles to suit everyone whether you are looking for a longer walk or a relaxed stroll and the chance to find out more about the areaís history, countryside, myths and mysteries. Whether itís marching in a maelstrom or sauntering in the sunshine, itís well worth taking a walk in Rosanna Rotheryís boots.

A well-known Devon-based journalist, Rosanna Rotheryís knowledge of its countryside, lore and history is second-to-none and her regular column in the North Devon Journal, Rosannaís Ramble, has an avid readership of both walking enthusiasts and readers simply seeking a titbit of local interest.
