Overview

Come with us to explore the amazing far south west of England. Original home to some of our staff so we feel we know the area pretty well! We will be exploring the best bits of one of the UK’s greatest trails.
At 1014 km long the South West Coastal Path winds its way around the entire south western coastline of England. With high cliffs, secluded beaches, castles, quaint seaside villages and pubs, moorlands and the pounding Atlantic Ocean, this area has more than enough to take your breath away.
Among the sheer natural beauty there are man made wonders like the castle of St Michael’s mount. Come with us and let us show you what we think is the UK’s best coast!

At Hound Tor, we will explore the ancient ruins of a medieval village and complete a circuit walk around the misty hills. This is the area Sir Conan Doyle set in his novel Hound of the Baskervilles. No trip to Southwest Britain would be complete without some tea and scones so we can indulge in some of Devon's finest for a lovely last meal after working up an adventurer’s appetite. We will then head to Exeter to finish our tour at around 5pm.

Food

The food will be provided by both accommodation chefs and our very own guides who will prepare and cook you delicious and nutritious dinners, lunches, all snacks and breakfast. We love our food so be prepared to have freshly ground coffee, moorish snacks and fresh fruit, beautiful vegetable based salads, wraps and cheeses. All this food is energy filled to sustain you on the track - oh! and lets not forget a sneaky desert or two and a relaxing beverage. We can cater for a range of intolerances and dietary requirements.
