South West Coast Path
The South West Coast Path National Trail is one of the top walks to be found anywhere in the world. It stretches for 630 miles from Minehead, Somerset on the edge of Exmoor around to the shores of Poole Harbour in Dorset. The heritage, wildlife, geology and scenery along this superb coastline are truly inspirational and walking it brings stunning new experiences every day. Whether you are looking for an afternoon stroll to take you to a beauty spot, or to embark on the challenge of hiking the entire route, or something in between it will be an unforgettable experience.
Further information about the path can be obtained from The South West Coast Path Association, a charitable body that represents those who enjoy the path. It provides help and information for walkers and through fundraising, assisting financially where appropriate, to ensure the best experience for all those using the Coast Path. The Association publishes a yearly guide (free to members) containing everything a walker needs to know to walk the whole 630 miles. It includes comprehensive accommodation details (B&Bs and campsites) actually on the path or very close to it; suggested itineraries; tide tables; river crossings and ferry operating schedules; local transport details and a complete trail description.
