Walk the South West Coast Path from Devon into Cornwall from the wonderfully named Westward Ho! to the fashionable seaside town of Padstow. The trail varies every step of the way swooping down from high cliffs to secluded coves, meandering through pretty villages and crossing vast sandy beaches. Enjoy freshly caught fish for dinner, wander through Clovelly’s cobbled streets and explore Tintagel Castle, the birthplace of King Arthur. Wildlife is ever present, such as dolphins, seals, whales and seabirds including, if you are lucky, puffins.

  • Walking the South West Coast Path

    The South West Path stretches around the south-west peninsula of England, exposing dramatic coastal scenery as the walk unfolds.  The route is split into several delightful sections as walking the entire route at once would be rather time-consuming.  This video gives you an overview of the route and how best to tackle it.
