Westcountry Walking Holidays specialises in self-guided, walking / hiking holidays and short breaks. We will move your luggage on for you, so that you can enjoy your walk pack free. Our walking tours cover a wonderful range of landscape and terrain in England's Westcountry (Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Somerset) and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path in Wales.
The South West Coast Path offers you 630 miles of stunning coastal walking: over woodlands, high cliffs, long sandy beaches, discreet coves and inlets, rocky headlands and picturesque villages. Running from Minehead in Somerset to Poole in Dorset, the Path has its origin as a route used by coastguards patrolling for smugglers. The path offers a wide variety of terrain to suit all walkers.
The Coleridge Way is a 51 mile walking trail, named after the poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who lived in Nether Stowey for a short period. Over the Quantock Hills and Exmoor through a variety of landscapes: heathland, moorland, deciduous & coniferous woodland, farmland, deeply wooded valleys and historic villages with expansive views over to the North Somerset Coast and Wales.
Enjoy some tremendous scenery along the 186 miles of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path as it weaves around the Welsh coast. The southern coastline is gentler and less remote but can still offer a challenge with the constant ups and downs and steepness of some of the sections. The northern section is wilder and more rugged: as the cliffs get higher, villages are fewer and further apart.
Running for 102 miles from Chipping Camden to Bath, the Cotswold Way passes through some of the most picturesque countryside and villages in England. Honey-coloured houses and traditional thatched cottages, country manors and historical houses, hill forts and burial mounts are there to be discovered before arriving in Bath, famous for its Roman Baths and Georgian buildings.
The Erme-Plym Trail and the Two Moors Way are brought together to provide you with a tremendous walking holiday over both Dartmoor and Exmoor. It covers the length of Devon: from Wembury, on the south coast, to Lynmouth, on the north. The route combines the wilds of the moors with the lush green countryside of mid Devon. It ends on the spectacular coast of North Devon and is well worth the effort.
