The countryside local to Blue Monkey provides some inspiring pram friendly walks come rain or shine.
The waterside perimeter of the estate provides an uplifting pram friendly walk, with spectacular views across Plymouth Sound and a host of eighteenth century follies, fountains, seats and shelters for you and your pram to rest along the path. The route travels through the parkland and woodland of the historic family seat of the Earls of Edgcumbe, who built the house at the heart of the estate in the mid-sixteenth century.
The house, gardens, tea-room, restaurant and shop are open to the public during the summer season but the South West Coast Path, passing through the estate, is open throughout the year. A pram friendly walk for all seasons!
Top Tip: An especially inspiring walk in early spring, when the National Camellia Collection is in full bloom, and in autumn, when the leaves in the woodland start to turn.
A gentle walk, mainly on pavement, this pram friendly walk is a breeze! Walk around the Hoe, the Barbican and Mount Batten breakwater and enjoy the seaside views. This unique section of the South West Coast Path is an entertaining and enlightening journey with plenty to learn along the route about the city’s history and heritage.
Top Tip: you will find toilets and a car park at Admiral’s Hard (postcode for sat navs PL1 3RJ) and refreshments dotted along the path.
This pram friendly walk is also a must for cyclists as it follows the route of an old Great Western Railway track. Leave Plymouth behind, push your way through glorious oak woods and emerge into peaceful open countryside. Breathe!! This exciting and pram friendly trail leads you past dramatic industrial remains, over towering quarry faces, and across breathtaking viaducts.
Top Tip: Take your bird book! In season these woods are famous for spotting nesting wild peregrines.
