The Watersmeet Trail
Whether you’re after a challenging hike or a family-friendly walk, there are trails at Watersmeet to suit just about everyone. Watersmeet is owned by the National Trust, covers 2000 acres of land reaching up to Countisbury and is where the East Lyn River and Hoar Oak Water meet. Cross bridges, wander the water’s edge and work up an appetite on your way to the charming tearoom where delicious treats await and you can savour a traditional cream tea.
If you fancy a swim, there are some safe spots to jump in and take the plunge. Long Pool is a deep pool where you can make a splash and Crook’s Pool is big and shallow- perfect for a paddle or a quick dip.
There is parking at Watersmeet though it’s a steep walk down to the path so take care.
