Porlock Toll Road

Climb in a sentence. It’s £1 well spent to climb this 1200ft, billiard table smooth road up the North Devon coastline, and far more enjoyable than the steeper, shorter and car-clogged A-road that this bypasses.

View rating. 8/10. The first half of the climb comes in and out of the trees, with each gap in the foliage revealing the village and bay of Porlock shrinking further and further away into the distance. By the summit you are out of the thick trees but still get great views down to the sea below.

Difficulty rating. 6/10 (the main road is a different story entirely.)
