A great cycle route with lovely views, wildlife, drinking stops and interesting shops.

Park or train to Star Cross

Catch a train from Teignmouth or park in the car park at the end of Star Cross. You can drive to several spots along the route with Free parking but they do get busy.

The route is clealy marked and you basically cycle along the path next to the estuary.

Powderham Castle and Deer Park

You get a great view of Powderham Castle from the road and there are lots of Deer in the grounds. Rutting season is well worth a visit to see there performance.

Good cycle path all the way
