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.
We have a range of walking holidays along the South West Coastal Path focusing on the best sections. 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.
