WALKS & HIKES
South West Coast Path
The South West Coast Path is a 630 mile adventure along the coast line of England’s south west peninsula. It’s a place for life’s adventurers, one for the discoverers, the boundary pushers and the bucketlisters. Walking the entire path will take around 56 days, but it’s easy to dip in and hike shorter stretches. Discover a digestible slice of the path with our favourite walks…

‘Steep but sweet’
This circular route is well worth a brief huff and puff for brilliant views of Morte Point and Woolacombe, along with an abundance of coastal flora and fauna. The lush coastal grasslands are especially rich for smaller birds, mammals and reptiles.
