Mothecombe to Noss Mayo

15/9/12 Tuesdays are the only day to bus this one, so it was on the bikes for us. We parked in Noss Mayo and then cycled towards the Erme. No pubs were passed and so a detour to do both of them in Holbeton before parking the bikes and having pasties in Mothecome tea room. Then the walk down to the crossing before starting the walk.

Mothecombe beach was a pleasant spot in the sunshine. Then it was on through a few fields
and up and down a few hills for the first half of the walk. After Stoke Beach, the path became a track and we made much quicker time. Soon, we rounded the headland and started up the Yealm estuary.

It was the usual estuary walk of a gradual descent through woods to a village ferry crossing. The next photo was taken from the small ferry jetty.

We then kept walking to the Ship Inn in Noss Mayo before retrieving the bikes from the now closed tea room.
