Overview

The South West Coast Path National Trail is one of the top walks to be found anywhere in the world.Where else can you walk along 630 miles of such superb coastline? The heritage, wildlife, geology and scenery along the way are truly inspirational and every day walking it brings stunning new experiences.Whether you are looking for an afternoon stroll to take you to a beauty spot, or to embark on the challenge of hiking their entire route from Somerset's Minehead on the edge of Exmoor around to the shores of Poole Harbour in Dorset, or something in between, you’ve come to the right place.

A lovely walk, we started at Torquay and ended in Weymouth, but the stand out heroes of the week were the people at Luggage Transfers Ltd who moved our cases between B&Bs so we could walk unburdened. Went off without a hitch and our luggage...More

I've walked the Cornish part on and off from Land's End to Newquay so far. I really think it should signposted better - near lands end it branched off into three separate trails, the one we took left us climbing across cliffs! It could do...More

Highly recommend walking the SW coastal path between Torquay and Brixham. Stunning scenery, delightful coves, walking through woods, across beaches, and also following the route of the steam train for part of the walk. Some steep climbs up and down from coves, but worth it...More

We walked from Polperro to Talland Bay over the coastal walk. The views are exceptional with a number of benches along the walk to sit, regain your breath and absorb the seascape and rugged cliff line. The path is largely stones and earth with just...More

I walked the coastal path from Padstow to Porthcothan on a beautiful morning in October. The walk is moderate level (you need to be reasonably fit but not an olympic athlete 😀.) The views are stunning and saw plenty of wildlife, highly recommended for those...More

Even if you don't walk the entire 630 miles, try one of the sections and you will get hooked.. The views are stunning for almost the entire path, and the accomodations and pubs along the way add to the experience.

Sorry, not clear? You may have had this query answered already by now. Where do you want the post code for as the South West coastal path is a vast area.
