    South West Coast Path, North Cornwall - circular walks Top 10 Walks: South West Coast Path: North Cornwall Coast - Bude to Land's End
     

    Bude to Land's End

    The ten walking routes featured here highlight the best short circular walks along the North Cornwall Coast section of the popular, 630-mile long South West Coast Path (SWCP). From Bude to the western-most tip of England at Land's End, Cornwall's northern coast has a character all its own. Much of its 140 miles is set against the open Atlantic, whose winter storms and thundering waves have sculpted a rugged coastline of formidable cliffs. Tiny, wave-washed coves and zawns contrast expansive beaches and dunes, the wild scenery often spilling offshore to half submerged reefs, stacks and rocky islands. The holiday resorts of St Ives and Newquay can attract summer crowds, but elsewhere, the coast is often deserted, with only birds for company and the delights of nature as distractions. The five-book series of 'Top Ten Walks' covers the whole of the UK's famous South West Coast Path. Each book explores the highlights along the way; showcasing its natural beauty, wildlife and heritage. Once you've tasted what the North Cornwall section has to offer, we think you'll be inspired to come back to tackle the complete trail.

    South West Coast Path, Somerset & North Devon - circular walks Top 10 Walks: South West Coast Path: Somerset and North Devon Coast - Minehead to Bude
     

    Minehead to Bude

    The ten walking routes featured here highlight the best short circular walks along the Somerset and North Devon Coast section of the popular, 630-mile long South West Coast Path (SWCP). Exmoor's fringe of majestic cliffs, secluded coves, ragged wave-washed rocks and rich coastal woodland is a stunning prelude to the long distance trail. Further west are Devon's glorious beaches but also an ever-more rugged coastline, which curves to the battering Atlantic surf. Large settlements are few, but occasional picturesque hamlets and villages grew around coves and small landings where fishing and seaborne trade (not always above board) supplemented the traditional farming way of life of the hinterland. Nature complements the intrinsic beauty of this landscape; seabirds abound on the cliffs and shore, while the lush and sometimes rare flora of unspoiled cliffs, native woodland, rough pasture and dunes supports smaller birds and countless butterflies. The five-book series of 'Top Ten Walks' covers the whole of the UK's famous South West Coast Path. Each book explores the highlights along the way; showcasing its natural beauty, wildlife and heritage. Once you've experienced what the Somerset and North Devon section has to offer, we think you'll be inspired to come back to tackle the complete trail.
