This is a walk requiring some appetite for hills but, boy, is it worth it! There are plenty of opportunities for refreshment stops to restore body and soul. We start out through Lower Eype, skirting Eype Down heading towards Symondsbury and an excellent café. After refreshments, the highlight, a short climb up the iconic Colmer’s Hill which affords extensive views in all directions.
