South West Coast Path


Think of Cornwall and you think of it's superb and varied coastline. The South West Coast Path is a remarkable footpath that follows this largely unspoilt coast for 630 miles From Minehead on the edge of the Exmoor National Park all the way to the shores of Poole Harbour it is simply the best way to enjoy the wonderful coastal scenery, wildlife and heritage.

Take a short stroll or tackle the whole adventure - in easy stages or all in one go. You can join the Path at coastal towns, villages and car parks or even from the beach. It's easy to follow  - just keep the sea on one side and look for the acorn waymarks. The sheer variety of the Coastal Path means that there are plenty of gentle stretches as well as dramatic headlands and steep coastal valleys where the going can be strenuous and demanding. Change the pace as often as you like.

Take in a picturesque harbour, stride out along the exhilerating Atlantic coast or relax beside a stunning river estuary. Something for everyone - the South West Coast Path.......Enjoy.
