Short and easy walks
East Devon Ramblers are a very enthusiastic and friendly group, and we invite you to walk with us. Visitors and new members are most welcome. We offer a choice of 6 varied walks a week, ranging from a leisurely half-day stroll to a full-day strenuous hike.
STOP PRESS: East Devon Group’s 50th birthday celebration!
Details of this major event, postponed 2 years due to the pandemic, can be found here, members are required to book by 1st June.
COVID-19 and returning to 'normal'
Pre-booking on walks and keeping a record of walkers is no longer a requirement on Ramblers walks, nor are there currently any restrictions on the size of group walks. However, some Leaders will wish to limit the numbers on their walks, due to such factors as the likelihood of crowding on popular paths on their route, the availability of car parking, etc., so will ask walkers to pre-book in the 6 days before a walk — this will be clearly stated in our programme.
Covid precautions such as social distancing, hand sanitisation, and avoiding sharing equipment are still important.
If the Leader requires pre‑booking, and your call goes to voicemail:
- Please provide your name and contact number, SLOWLY and CLEARLY
- The Leader can then allocate you a place (or wait‑list you) in time-stamp order
Please watch out for additional "pop-up" walks, any last-minute road/access changes, and possible cancellations, by checking "Last-minute Walk Updates", the "Find a Walk" page, or on the Mobile App (Android, Apple).

Why walk with us?
It's a great way to walk in good company, meet new people, stay or get fit, and simply enjoy our stunning coastline and countryside. We reached our 50th year in 2020, so you can be confident you will be joining a successful and well established, locally run group.
Where do we walk?
Usually in and around East Devon and West Dorset, but occasionally further afield to Dartmoor and Exmoor, as well as other parts of Devon, Dorset, and Somerset. A number of our walks include sections of the Jurassic Coast, Britain's first natural World Heritage Site.
The group also organises a variety of other activities:
- walking holidays in Britain, and occasionally Europe
- social events such as quiz nights, skittles, barn dances and suppers
- an annual Christmas lunch
The Ramblers are the largest representative body of walkers in the UK and we support the Ramblers’ objectives of protecting and enhancing public paths through our local network of footpath officers and by supporting Pathwatch.
