About your host

I have been living and walking around Aveton Gifford since 2000. The Avon river estuary is part of the lifeblood of this village and I have been exploring it at low tide on foot and at high tide by kayak for many years. It is one of my favourite places, which I would love to share with guests.

What we’ll do

I will meet you at the entrance to Bantham beach car park where you can enjoy the sandy beach before/after the walk. From there, we will travel in my car to the start of the walk (the end of Aveton Gifford tidal road).

Where you'll be

Our walk takes us down the meandering, steep-sided river valley of the Avon estuary, ending at the entrance to the popular, sandy Bantham beach. It is a little-visited area and accessible on foot only at low tide. You will find yourself with a wide vista and the possibility of passing the local swans, who may fly low along the valley with their beating wings a sound that you will remember.
