Written by Redrow

As the weather begins to warm up and the days are lighter for longer, we have selected a series of picturesque walks local to our Saxon Brook development in Devon, that can be enjoyed by residents.

The walks explore the stunning countryside suburb of Pinhoe, located on the outskirts of Exeter in Devon.

Our leaflet features three walks, exploring the stunning scenery and local landmarks that surround the development.

Saxon Brook offers the perfect balance of traditional Devon country life, with all the advantages of the city within easy reach. It is also close to the M5 and Exeter Airport, with direct trains to London from Pinhoe Station.

The walks can be completed by people of varied abilities, with the shortest walk only a mile and a half long and the longest walk just over 4 miles. There is also a mix of terrain, making them perfect for dog walks and families looking to do some exploring on a sunny weekend.


Walk one

Walk one is just one and a half miles across tracks, bridle paths and lanes and will take you around 30 minutes to complete. The walk takes you along the Pin Brook, past the old Brick Factory, climbing steadily to Pinhoe Church. From there you can enjoy stunning views of the Exe Estuary.

Walk 2

Walks two and three are both around four miles long and will take around one hour thirty minutes to complete. These walks are suited to people that want to venture a bit further than walk one, and ideal for prospective homebuyers looking at homes at Saxon Brook.

Walk two starts at Pinhoe train station, leading to Saxon Brook and showing the closeness of the site to transport links. You will then be guided along the stunning river Clyst, continuing past a traditional old mill and following the river into Clyst Honiton before returning to Pinhoe.

Walk 3

Walk three starts and ends at the Saxon Brook development, making it perfect for residents or people combining a walk with a house viewing. Starting in phase one of the site, you walk over the river Clyst into the idyllic Broadclyst. The route then takes you across to Poltimore and back down into the brand-new phase four of the development, and the newest of Redrow homes on offer.

Saxon Brook features stunning three and four-bedroom detached homes from Redrow’s Heritage Collection which take their design inspiration from the soft colour palettes and traditional structures of the Arts and Crafts movement of the 1930s.
