Those who fancy a challenging walk in Devon near the coast should try Potter's Hill near Woolacombe, it has been suggested.

The site has been featured as the Daily Telegraph's Walk of the Week and ranger for the area Jonathan Fairhurst said: "Woolacombe, North Devon, is famous for its beach but if you want to try something a bit different take on the challenge of the mini-mountain walk up Potters Hill and beyond."

People doing this may make good use of fleeces, as Mr Fairhurst warned it is windy on top, but also said there are outstanding views across Woolacombe and a chance to view Kestrels flying above and wild ponies on the downland nearby.

Those riding mountain bikes may also enjoy the area, as it is on National Cycling Route number 27.

People who fancy a real mountain in Devon will find one place where they can get over 2,000 ft up is on Dartmoor.

High Willhays near Okehampton is the highest point in the county and offers panoramic views over the flatter countryside to the north.ADNFCR-2803-ID-800355296-ADNFCR
