love this part of the coast path - lots of fascinating features along the way to look out for, the lush stairway to Devon at Royal William Yard and really good to see lots of nautical and historical references in walls, railings. Really inventive.

The steps up from Royal William Yard were amazing and in memory of Eric Wallis MBE and lead to the most fantastic views you won't have seen for a long time. (Weather permitting). There is some storm damage in that area but look through it.

Great clear path leading between villages and Towns, stop off points at camp sites and with refreshments between a few pubs. All very welcoming and friendly.

My wife and I live in Plymouth and a regular feature of our walking calender includes numerous trips to the South West Coast Path from Whitsand to Cawsand via Rame Head and back. It is normally well trimmed and clear, today it was an absolute nightmare. The path is almost totally overgrown in some places, with waist high grasses and... More

Over the last couple of weeks my partner and I completed parts of this great path. We walked both north and south Cornwall parts of the path. The views are stunning and the villages you ended up walking through are beautiful. The path in general is well signposted, but be aware some have been overgrown during the winter months but... More

Plymouth as a whole is mixed but the Hoe is stunning and a highlight of the Path so far. Puzzled by the signing around the Royal Albert Docks which sends you on a pointless tour.

We have just completed stage 1 and two of the route ending in Lynton. It is well worth leaving the car behind and getting public transport so that you can walk as far as you like and stay in one of the charming villages along the coastline. We stayed at Myrtle Cottage in Porlock after the first day and soaked... More

Of the 400+ miles we have completed so far, one of our very favourite sections of this excellent walk, is from Polruan to Polperro. The northern coast was a lot more challenging than the southern coast (as far a Plymouth).

Great walks around headland, seafront and catch the Cremyll Ferry to Cornwall. Enjoy lunch in one of the many Waterfront restuarants or Barbican bars. Watch the many boats in or out of the sound.
