Things to See

Local Attractions and Things to See and Do

  • The South West Coast Path
  • The South West Coast Path starts at Minehead in Somerset and runs along part of the Somerset Bristol Channel coast, across North Devon, right round Cornwall, then along the South Devon and Dorset coasts to Poole Harbour. This is a distance of 630 miles which is over twice the distance of the Pennine Way and makes it by far the longest National Trail in Britain. There is easy access to the path from the bed and breakfast.
