There are a number of sections of the coast path that can be walked in sections between Plymouth and Hope Cove, all have there own mysteries and grandeur. One needs to experience them to get their own personal "KICK".

I only walked a small stretch of this excellent path and it provides excellent views but some challenging walking. Stretches can be steep and it is very hilly.

Thev SW coastal path is wonderful. Gets you off the beaten path and into beautiful countryside and views. Some parts are more challenging than others but the path offers something for everybody. Have done several hikes now and not one disappointment.

Every section is a beautiful walk and you can customize your outing to any length. Even back-tracking to go back to your car gives you new views for your awe-ing pleasure!

Excellent coastal walk. The terrain is not too difficult & the views are world class. A large amount of the surrounding coast is owned by The National Trust & there are several NT properties nearby well worth a visit.

Why go abroad when there is 630 miles of stunning coast line walking from Minehead in Somerset to Poole in Dorset. Great walking and scenery guaranteed throughout. I recommend walking in the Spring or Autumn mainly because it is easier to obtain accommodation. My wife...More
