As reported Hartnells lane is a real mess. Waded up the track to the field gate then easy pasture.cjo20/12/2023
From car park by old railway track bed. Took that filthy Hartnall's Lane, narrow and muddy as Jonglew said- sadly like that after a dry spring. Then along field boundary. Gate near top if you are not sure which side the HP is. Heavy shower on descent.pwheeler08/06/2022
From car park to due N. Took that filthy Hartnall's Lane, narrow and muddy. Then along field boundary.jonglew06/11/2021
10km loop from Woolacombe beach, taking in Woolacombe down and spreacombe hill. 2hrs 30, very hot and lots of horse flies!Nicky C27/07/2021
Parking to north, along road, then up BW and into summit field.PeterD06/05/2019
From parking toN. Along main road and up bw. A bit muddy but known worse. Then into summit field. Suggest you return by same route as I tried further east to be confronted by brambles and hawthorn in every direction.Campbell Singer11/04/2019
HP indistinct in grassy field, probably near fence and gate. Very gusty. First primroses of the year seen in muddy Hartnoll lane. Based in nearby Golden coast resort- great value at this time of year.Denise 10/03/2019
From the N along muddy wallow of Hartnall's Lane to ridge then ESE through fields of cultivated pasture to levelish summit. Blustery. Camping at Golden Coast Holiay village, definitely OK out of season, even use of pool and sauna included in the price.RichardM10/03/2019

From N as Dusty, not v muddy after dry spell. Hp probably N side of hedge as suggested by 25k map but rather level, pastureRHW16/07/2017
After day in Ilfracombe. Hartnall's Lane then following hedges from west. Muddy but not as bad as I was expecting.Dusty16/02/2017
Quagmire deeper than my new boots up b/way trapped between hedges from NW then gates to top through grass at last. L wearing trainers sensibly turned back early. Wellies or a drought would be best. Start of a circular walk from small free car park on Tarka Trail (old railway) and over Woolacombe Down to beach, then cliff path to Morthoe Hill and f'paths through giant sized caravan / chalet parks back inland to car.Chris Pearson04/04/2016
