South West Coast Path: Minehead to Westward Ho!

  • The first stretch of the South West Coast Path from Minehead to Westward Ho!
  • Hollow Brook, one of the highest waterfalls in Britain.
  • An abundance of wild flowers, grasses and wildlife.
  • Incredible views of Porlock from Hurlstone Point.
  • Restored chapel of St Nicholas, the oldest lighthouse in the UK.
Follow the first stretch of the South West Coast Path along diverse coastlines between Minehead and Westward Ho! The path takes you along the highest coastline in Britain and other highlights are its sandy beaches, coastal woodland and rugged cliff tops. It also incorporates the Tarka Trail; a series of footpaths that follow the route taken by Tarka the Otter in the book by author Henry Williamson. The trail gently meanders down from the coast to a lower level, passing marshland and nature reserves so you can enjoy the abundance of plants and wildlife.

  • 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.
