“640 beautiful miles!”

South West Coast Path National Trail
Reviewed February 15, 2012

We started this venture five years ago when we realised we had already walked large chunks of the SW Coast Path and decided to fill in the (rather large!) gaps. Plymouth is ideally situated for day trips to chip away at the distance; it was only when we were on the section in Dorset that we spent whole weekends away walking.I know of people who plan and walk the whole lot in one go but that was not an option for us because of work commitments. I would thoroughly recommend walking the SW Path- some of the scenery is superlative and organising yourself around buses and return trips is an organisational challenge! We finished it in March 2010; next stop, the Welsh coast path!

Having previously walked the entire coastal path around Cornwall while in training for a John O' Groats to Lands End walk, I can happily report that this path will give many wonderful views. I have lived in Cornwall my whole life and am very proud to do so, this coastal path is one to be proud of. So many excellent views around the corner, especially on a lovely sunny day. However, be aware that as with all coastal paths, the weather can change quickly and some paths can be tricky and close to the edge, so always take caution - but definately well worth a wander.

Beside the sea, varied, with a beach every five miles. Private coves where you can skinny-dip, shaded lengths beneath the trees, and a delightful village every now and then.

Stunning beaches, fresh air, the lovely Hope Cove - nice, manageable stretches with great back lanes and paths for 1/2 day circular walks
