Walking Trips on The South West Coast Path

Stretching more than 630 miles around the south western tip of England, it is rare that the South West Coast Path is completed as a single walking trip. Instead, walkers commonly select their must-see spots, or pick a pre-set itinerary that divides the path into sections. Below we have included our most popular itinerary requests, maximising the beauty of this landscape, alongside easy access by public transport. Take your pick from our popular itineraries below, or ask us to create a bespoke trip for you, with rest days, preferred daily distances, dog-friendly breaks, and anything else you want or need. 

The South West Coast Path - rugged landscapes and stunning Atlantic views

Starting at the fishing village of Minehead in Somerset, the South West Coast Path spans four separate counties on its route around the south west tip of England. Somerset, Devon, Cornwall and Dorset all feature on the trips, visiting world-famous sights including Land's End and The Jurassic Coastline. Walking the entirety of the route, you would cover more than 115,000 feet of ascent and descent, (the equivalent of scaling Mount Everest four times), but tackling the hills and valleys of this coastline are worth every step for the breathtaking views and unrivalled landscapes. We class these trips for moderate to experienced walkers, but they can be achieved by anyone with suitable rest days and distances.
