South West England Coastal Walks

South West England Coastal Walks

by: Sue Viccars
The draw of Britain's South West Peninsula lies in the mix of sweeping moorland, wooded valleys, patchwork farmland, sparkling rivers, picturesque villages and pubs; not forgetting the equitable climate, two National Parks and several Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. But for walkers specifically what gives the southwest its edge is its beautiful and unique coastline, studded with atmospheric fishing villages and superb beaches, rugged cliffs and broad estuaries.

For walkers who want to explore this magnificent coast, but do not have time to walk long sections of the South west Coast National Trail this book provides 28 fabulous circular walks allowing you to explore some of the most scenic stretches of the coast. In total the walks cover 175 miles of coast and countryside in Devon, Cornwall and Dorset.
