From iconic named trails to a network of minor footpaths, North and Mid Devon is home to a fantastic selection of walks. Whether you want to soak up the scenery on a low-intensity stroll or test your limits with a coastal hike, this region of England promises satisfaction for walkers of all abilities.

The South West Coast Path (SWCP)

The South West Coast Path is the most popular long-distance national trail in this region. It begins in Minehead and follows the coast, with occasional forays inland, for 124 miles to the Cornish border before completing its 630-mile journey round the Cornwall peninsula to Poole Harbour in Dorset.

The North Devon section is considered by many to be the most beautiful, as well as the most challenging, of the entire route. All keen walkers who visit Devon will do parts of the coast path, most utilising the inland footpaths to make a circular trip or doing one of the ‘bus-assisted walks’ popular with those seeking a less vigorous experience.
