Description

(D/A) Leave the car park through the wooden gate at the far end and join the footpath towards the sea. Pass through the five-barred gate and turn right onto the coast path along Revelstoke Carriage Drive.

(1) Pass in front of Warren Cottage and continue, following the coast path around the headland and into the Yealm Estuary.

(2) 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.

(3) 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.

(4) Follow the road through the village. At a sharp left hand uphill bend turn right, by a cottage called Yonda Coombe. Go past the car park and tennis courts and follow the lane, which leads onto a track up the hill.

(5) At the road, turn left immediately right into the car park.(D/A)

This stage is really an add-on to the official route. There is an option to use the Erme-Plym Trail that is, in itself, an add-on to the original Two Moors Way. This will take you straight to Ivybridge through Brixton and Yealmpton. However, this route takes you along the coast to Wembury. The ferry option reduces the road walking considerably.
