Top 10 Walks: South West Coast Path: North Cornwall




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.
