There are many beautiful walks close by but below you will find two versions of our favourite (car free) walks that take you down to Mill Bay and then a woodland path that takes you high above the Cleddau estuary with spectacular views all along the way. Not to be missed.
Cosheston Short Walk
Distance - 2.3 Miles
Duration - 1 hour
2 gates, 2 footbridges, no stiles. Paths uneven and narrow in places. Follow the lane down from ideawood crossing the ford and up the hill to the village. From Cosheston village, follow signs for playing field and walk past it, staying on road. Just before a pink house, go through gate on left on to path through wood. Follow path as it meanders down to a stream. Cross the stone bridge and follow the path down to the river. At the bottom, bear right (do not re-cross the stream) and follow the woodland edge path around. At the end of the wood, turn sharp right (do not cross stile) and follow path. The path turns left at the top to a gate. Pass through gate and continue straight ahead on minor road. At T-junction turn right and follow road back to Cosheston.
Cosheston Long Walk
Distance - 5.6 Miles
Duration - 3 Hours
The route offers a variety of views and 'atmospheres'. From the quiet roads around the old village of Cosheston you can see good examples of the medieval 'stripfields'. The arched stone bridge over the stream that runs into Mill Bay is new (built by National Park Wardens in 2005), and the old ruin at the head of the bay is the boat house associated with Cosheston Hall. The eastern side of the route is over farmland that may well have lots of livestock, so please keep your dogs under close control.
