South West Coast Path: North Cornwall

The South West Coast Path is England’s longest waymarked long-distance footpath and National Trail. Our North Cornwall holidays take in tiny fishing villages, rocky headlands, remote coastal landscapes and golden surf-washed beaches. You’ll enjoy overnights stays in the popular towns of Padstow, St Ives, Port Isaac and Tintagel. There are a great many historical points along this route as well as museums highlighting North Cornwall’s hidden past.

Our Holidays

We have a range of walking holidays along the entire length of the South West Coast Path. All routes are well worth undertaking in their own right and you can take on each section separately until you’ve completed the whole path.

When choosing your route, please bear in mind that the actual distance walked on any day may sometimes vary by up to 2 miles/3 km from the quoted distances, depending on the exact location of your accommodation. The mileages shown are typical door to door distances for each day.

Client Feedback

Q: How likely is it that you would recommend Mickledore to a friend? A: extremely likely because my wife and I absolutely loved the 5 days walking along the South West Coast Path, partly because of the scenery but also we always felt relaxed and confident that with Mickledore’s professional organisation we would not come to any problems (which we didn’t, thank you).

I am a repeat customer, having done Coast to Coast with you in 2013. I knew everything would well-planned and easy from prior experience, and you didn’t disappoint. The trip was very-well designed, the accommodations very nice, and the logistics were flawless. I was able to focus just on the enjoyment of walking and leave the logistics/planning to you. I also appreciate how clear and honest you are in your dealings.
