South West Coast Path: North Cornwall

The South West Coast path is England’s longest waymarked long-distance footpath and National Trail. The area is full of interesting wildlife and birdlife, and you may even spot dolphins and seals. There are lots of historical points you pass along this route and museums highlighting North Cornwall’s hidden past.

The North Cornwall Coast Path takes in tiny fishing villages, rocky headlands, remote coastal landscapes and golden surf-washed beaches. We offer two sections that cover North Cornwall along the South West Coast Path (SWCP) National Trail. These sections pass through a mixture of idyllic coastal villages with the most rewarding views over clifftops and beaches.Our holidays along this section of the South West Coast Path include stopover nights in the popular towns of Padstow, St Ives, Port Isaac and Tintagel.

Client Feedback

We really enjoyed the tour. All accommodations and hosts were very nice and clean. The duration and length of the daily walks were perfect. Not too long and not too short. The luggage transport always worked as well as the transfer to the hotels. Everything worked and was perfectly organised. Thank you very much for the great experience.

This holiday with lodging and luggage transfers was perfect for us – it was the highlight of our 2 week trip – the whole trip was great, but Hadrian’s Wall was a unique adventure for us. Thanks.

Mickledore is a firm that I would recommend strongly, and would readily use again. Booking was simple and well organised, with helpful advice provided where asked for. The information pack was thorough and fully detailed (I liked the personalised touches). All the information, directions etc that we needed was included. The guidebook was very comprehensive. The baggage transfers worked like clockwork.

Thank you for a most enjoyable holiday.
