South West Coast Path

The South West Coast Path runs 630 miles around the coastline from Poole Harbour to Minehead via Lands End. Some of the most spectacular stretches of the path are those through the South Hams from Dartmouth to Stoke Fleming and onwards past Blackpool and Slapton Sands, Start Point, Prawle Point, Bolt Head and the Rivers Avon, Erme and Yealm.

The delightful section between Dartmouth and Blackpool Sands is right on our doorstep – but for the energetic, the rest of the path in the South Hams is very worthwhile exploring.
