The South West Coast Path as a whole would be a huge undertaking but one of the beauties of it is you can walk its length a bit at a time. Among the bits we've walked along is the stretch around the Lizard, between Kennack Sands and Kynance Cove. This is a largely well-maintained path and contains several wonderful points... More

Some of the most exquisite views when you are along this most beautiful part of the South West. I have two favourite sections...Cremyll Ferry to Kingsand and Cawsand and Gribben Head and the Saints Way.

Just beautiful - what more can one say about this lovely part of the world? Te paths are mostly well maintained and there are lots of diversions, eating places and you can stop off and swim, picnic.

Part of route through the Mount Edgecombe estate has subsided and has signposted diversions. A number of signs are... More

The path is easy to do in small chunks, with access all along the path, especially in South Devon. the walk from Thurlestone to Bantham Beach always delights.

Take a walk up and down the wonderful coastal path from Wembury beach to the Yealm and then back again and visit the Odd Wheel Pub in Wembury for lunch or an evening meal or quite possibly both in the same day.
