The South West Coast Path

The South West Coast Path is regularly voted as the UK’s favourite walk and we love having the path so easily accessible to us.

Originally created by coastguards on the lookout for smugglers, the path became well established as they had to explore every tiny inlet from the clifftop above. The Coast Path is 630 miles long and is the longest National Trail in the country.  The walk follows the coast from Minehead in Somerset through Devon and Cornwall and finishing at Poole in Dorset.

Along the way you will see spectacular scenery, beautiful beaches and charming coastal villages.  Not to mention the heritage, wildlife and geology including the Jurassic coastline, England’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Do we sound biased?  It is hard not to be when the South West Coast Path is ranked, in the book Great Adventures published by Lonely Planet, alongside walks including the Tour du Mont Blanc and New Zealand’s Milford Track.

How does a motorhome holiday and a walk go together?  The South West Coast Path not only offers the coastal challenge, there are also short and easily accessible walks, golden beaches and picturesque fishing villages to explore, with plenty of campsites along the route in which to stay.

The South West Coast Path has something special for everyone!
