The South West Coast Path stretches 630 miles from Minehead to Poole Harbour in Dorset and is one of the world’s great walks. Our SWCP Part 4 trip covers some of the more challenging sections in terms of terrain although we gain rich rewards for our efforts in terms of scenery. We will walk between Boscastle and Rock on the North Cornwall coast, taking in the quaint coastal villages of Tintagel and Polzeath along the way. The holiday combines walking with opportunities for swimming in secluded sandy coves along with a taste of Cornish heritage. There is plenty of interest for wild life enthusiasts with the potential for seeing seals, basking sharks, gannets and wild ponies, as well as other Cornish delights such as ice cream, cream teas or even pasties! We cover 26.5 miles over 3.5 days through ever changing landscape. You will only need to carry a day pack.
Day 1 Boscastle to The Bluff, Trebarwith.
Day 2 Trebarwith to Port Isaac, a delightful old fishing village and the primary location for Doc Martin.

For this holiday, we will have sole use of the gorgeous Bluff Centre with its amazing views and sense of wild seclusion. Breakfast and lunch are provided on a help yourself basis and we will eat out in the evenings at local pubs (not included).
