Quick Link to South West Coast Path

The South West Coast Path is based on the paths trodden by generations of coastguards as they patrolled the cliffs and coves searching for smugglers.
The South West coastline is stunning with many changes of scenery: magnificent cliffs with views of Lundy, one of the largest sand dune systems in Britain now designated an area of special scientific interest, long winding estuaries with large flocks of wading birds, and vast expanses of sandy beaches making this area one of the UK’s most popular with surfers.
The South West Coast Path passes through quaint Devon villages with cobbled streets, picturesque Cornish fishing villages, and headlands to rival Land’s End. This is fast becoming the most popular walking holiday destination in the UK.

We don’t expect you to do the whole walking trail in one holiday!
Take your time and enjoy the scenery and wildlife.
We organize the luggage transfer so your bags are at your next accommodation when you arrive.
We offer a wide choice of itineraries for self-guided walking holidays on the South West Coast Path from March to October.

We have designed our self-guided walking holidays on the South West Coast Path to complement the most popular guide books:
TrailBlazer and the Official National Trail Guide by Aurum Press.

We also have a series of holidays which fit neatly into weekly holidays.

We are based in the South West of England and all our team have detailed local knowledge of the whole of the South West Coast Path. We also pride ourselves in offering the widest choice of bespoke walking holidays on the South West Coast Path and in the UK.
