There are a number of sections of the coast path that can be walked in sections between Plymouth and Hope Cove, all have there own mysteries and grandeur. One needs to experience them to get their own personal "KICK".

I only walked a small stretch of this excellent path and it provides excellent views but some challenging walking. Stretches can be steep and it is very hilly.

Thev SW coastal path is wonderful. Gets you off the beaten path and into beautiful countryside and views. Some parts are more challenging than others but the path offers something for everybody. Have done several hikes now and not one disappointment.

Some of the very best of the English coastal walkways, all well maintained with great villages on route
