The team on Northam Burrows have introduced a new Covid safe trail to explore. This coincides with the wider project work bringing improvements to the visitor centre and other facilities on the Burrows. This includes the reopening of the footpath linking to Westward Ho! which was damaged by storms.
The audio trail consists of QR codes displayed on wooden posts and can be found along the South West Coast Path between the Burrows Centre and the Skern road. By scanning the QR codes with a smartphone, people will be able to access an audio clip all about that particular area of the Burrows as well as a map showing where to discover the rest of the trail. Visitors can learn fascinating facts about the local area and can visit as many or as few of the trail points as they like.
Northam Burrows is common land and home to many sheep, horses and wild birds and animals so we ask all visitors to keep their dogs under close control when visiting and to drop litter into bins provided or take it home with them.
Northam Burrows Country Park is open to vehicles from 7am to 10pm every day (toll charges apply). Although the visitor centre is currently undergoing building works, there are temporary toilet facilities in Sandymere car park and both Le Petit Café and Hockings ice cream vans can often be found on site.
