    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.

    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.

Running from Land's End at the very western tip of England to Penlee Point, guarding the entrance to Plymouth Sound, Cornwall's deeply convoluted south coast is infinitely varied, ranging from rugged cliffs braced against the full force of Atlantic waves to the sheltered Cornish Riviera where the weather, scenery and flora can be almost Mediterranean. Large towns are few, but attractive villages, hamlets and harbours abound, usually with a welcoming pub or café not far away. The five-book series of 'Top Ten Walks' covers the whole of the UK's famous South West Coast Path.

  •   This handy pocket size book will take you on short circular walks to the ten finest views and viewpoints in the Peak District. Views are why many of us venture into the hills and countryside in the first place. Nothing beats a sweeping view from a moorland edge or hill, or an arching panorama over a pleasant valley. Sometimes it’s just the simple pleasure of the patterns of light and shade, the textures and colours of the woodland or the flowing beauty of the stream we’re walking beside. But typically there’s a feeling that you’ve earned a great view through sheer effort – even if the easiest approach had been taken to reach it. Perhaps that’s why so many of the great Peak District views are atop minor summits, at moorland edges, or overlooking deep valleys.
  • Discover the very best of the Peak District. These ten themed walks explore the contrasting faces of the Peaks — the gentle White and rugged Dark Peak.   Discover clear rivers and streams, ancient packhorse bridges and stepping stones. Walk through winding dales and valleys bright with wildflowers. Visit stately Chatsworth or marvel at the panorama from Monsal Head. Tour upland reservoirs and dramatic rocky edges popular with climbers. Slog up Shutlingsloe or explore the open moorland and strangely eroded tors on Kinder Edge. Every one is a walk to remember.
  • Discover the very best of the Lake District. Part of the Lake District’s unique attraction is its compactness. Within its boundaries are a rich mix of lakes, mountains, forests and farmland characterised by pretty villages, winding roads, deep dales and valleys, drystone walls and distinctive Herdwick and Swaledale sheep. Ready to explore? Discover the two loveliest lakeside walks, the best pub walk, and the most amazing view. Visit Cumbria’s stunning Castlerigg stone circle, scale its best-loved low and high fells, or marvel at its most dramatic waterfall. Every one is a walk to remember.
  • A visit to a tea shop adds something special to a walk. It’s always a treat to sit down to coffee and cake at the end of an afternoon stroll or to tuck into a hearty lunch half-way through a gorgeous hike. From quaint little tea rooms that still serve drinks in china cups to modern cafés staffed by trained baristas, the Lake District has plenty to offer — and all surrounded by a truly breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage landscape. The ten tea shops in this book have been chosen partly on the basis of the excellent walking that can be enjoyed from their doors, and partly on the basis of the fare and ambience they have to offer.  They occupy village, lakeside and woodland locations. The walks themselves take in hidden valleys, low fells, lakes, waterfalls, riverside paths, fabulous viewpoints and wildflower-filled woods — a tremendous array of the sort of scenery for which the Lake District has become world famous.

    Plymouth to Lyme Regis

Once you've tasted what this section has to offer, you may be inspired to come back to tackle the complete trail.  
  • Lyme Regis to Poole Harbour

    The ten walks featured here highlight the best short circular walks along Dorset's iconic 'Jurassic Coast' section of the South West Coast Path. The Dorset coast is perhaps the most varied of the whole south western peninsula, encompassing glorious beaches, towering cliffs, detached stacks, long shingle banks and picturesque coves and inlets. The handiwork of man both past and present is there too, in settlement, quarrying and even oil extraction. But there is little to detract from the coast’s overall beauty — and the coast’s huge range of habitats is reflected in the sheer abundance of flowers and wildlife you’ll experience along the way.

  • The ten walks featured here highlight the very best Welsh lighthouses and huge variety of the coastline of Wales. From vast expanses of sand, sea and sky, such as at Whiteford Point and Llanddwyn Island, to rugged coastline where seabirds wheel and skrike and porpoise and seals slide through the waves, like Strumble Head and South Stack, these walks to lighthouses guarantee a fine day out. All are circular, and vary from short and easy, like the to Talacre lighthouse, to longer and more demanding, such as that to St. Ann’s Head lighthouse — but none are beyond any reasonably fit and enthusiastic walker.
  • One of seven Official Guides to the Wales Coast Path The Snowdonia & Ceredigion coast offers a tremendous variety of landscape to those who walk its entire 132 miles/213 kilometres: from high, airy cliff-tops to secluded coves; from estuarine salt marshes to beaches backed by tremendous dune system that stretch on for miles. And with that diversity comes a huge range of wildlife, including seabirds, choughs, dolphins and rare wildflowers. The history too changes with every twist and turn of this fascinating route: visitors should always be prepared for the unexpected in a region that contains the ruins of once mighty castles and has links with characters as disparate as King Arthur and members of the rock band Led Zeppelin.
  • Pembrokeshire’s Café Culture is booming and it’s not the big chains leading the way. Gone are the steamy fugs, greasy-spoon menus and chipped mugs; instead, there’s no shortage of bright and friendly venues serving speciality coffees and teas, home-made baking, and wonderful snacks and meals that capitalise on the best of local produce and culinary talent. Very often there’re take-away options too and sometimes interesting wines or Welsh-brewed beers and ciders. Many are open all day from breakfast and morning coffee to afternoon tea, with some venues running into the evening too with live music, poetry or storytelling. They’re great places to rest or meet up with friends, too; so go for a walk and see what you can find — you’ll not be disappointed.
  • This attractive and good looking book will take you on ten short circular walks to some of the finest and most iconic pubs and inns in Pembrokeshire, in South Wales. Ever since rambling became a recognised pastime, country pubs have been magnets for walkers. Whether a lunchtime stop along the way or a final destination for the day, the promise of a thirst-quenching pint, bar snack or a hearty meal is for many, an integral part of the day. Many of Pembrokeshire's coastal inns have origins in serving seafarers, while those inland lay beside routes to and from the coast or beside old droves along which livestock were herded to market. Today, all have a fine tradition of serving visitors who come for no other purpose than to enjoy the magnificent countryside. Those chosen here have long established reputations for their food or ale and have an individual quirkiness worth seeking out.

  • Product Description One of nine books in the new Top 10 Walks: Wales Coast Path series. The past two centuries have wrought more change on South Wales than any other section of the country’s coast. Until the end of the 18th century, Swansea, Barry and even Cardiff were just small ports, though their ships traded far and wide. The industry of iron and coal changed things forever but most of the coast and its immediate hinterland were left unspoiled and elsewhere, nature has reclaimed some of what was taken. The coast is one of extreme contrasts, ranging from great dune systems through sheer cliffs to miles of coastal saltmarsh. Nowhere is far from a delightful stretch overlooking the sea, with fine views, nature and heritage all around.
  • The Lakeland Fells have some of the finest ridge walks in the country. Exploring these ridges offers fell walking at its most satisfying — staying high, taking in several summits and enjoying the spectacular settings. Many of the Lake District’s ridge walks have become classics, like the grassy edges of the Fairfield and Kentmere Horseshoes, or rocky aretes of Striding Edge and Swirral Edge and the aptly named Sharp Edge of Blencathra.
