Top 10 Walks: South West Coast Path: South Devon




Plymouth to Lyme Regis

The ten walking routes featured here highlight the best short circular walks along the South Devon Coast section of the popular, 630-mile long South West Coast Path (SWCP).

Devon has been described as one of England’s most beautiful counties, its south coast encompassing everything from superb sandy beaches to soaring cliffs and tiny, secluded coves to sweeping bays. Meandering estuaries and narrow lanes wind to time-forgotten villages and fishing settlements, where flower-decked, thatched cottages and perhaps an inviting country pub cluster around an ancient church.

The five book series of ‘Top Ten Walks’ covers the whole of the SouthWest Coast Path. Each book explores the highlights along the way; showcasing its natural beauty, wildlife and heritage.
