About This Project

Noss Mayo and Revelstoke Drive – Cliffs and carriageway

The many faces of maritime South Devon in one walk; wild open sea and rugged coast, sheltered  estuary, wooded riverbanks, and the waterfront village of Noss Mayo with its chocolate box charm.


This walk is very near to two hidden National Landscape geocaches – ‘Your South Devon Landscape 1′ and ‘Your South Devon Landscape 2’

Information about our geocaches and how to find them here.

  1. Leave the car park through the wooden gate at the far end and join footpath towards the sea. Pass through the five-barred gate and turn right onto the coast path along Revelstoke Carriage Drive.
  2. Pass in front of Warren Cottage and continue, following the coast path around the headland and into the Yealm Estuary.
  3. 250m beyond Battery Cottage , either bear left along a footpath through the woods (grade moderate), or continue along the Drive. Both routes join again after a further 700m.
  4. 20m after the routes meet there is another choice: bear right onto the footpath through Ferry Wood alongside the road (grade moderate), or continue to follow the road itself. The two routes join after another 800m.
  5. Follow the road through the village. At a sharp left hand uphill bend turn right, by a cottage called Yonda Coombe.
  6. Go past car park and tennis courts and follow the lane, which leads onto a track up the hill.
  7. At the road, turn left immediately right into car park.
