South West Coast Path: Minehead to Westward Ho!

Follow the first stretch of the South West Coast Path along diverse coastlines between Minehead and Westward Ho! 

The path takes you along the highest coastline in Britain and other highlights are its sandy beaches, coastal woodland and rugged cliff tops. 

It also incorporates the Tarka Trail; a series of footpaths that follow the route taken by Tarka the Otter in the book by author Henry Williamson. The trail gently meanders down from the coast to a lower level, passing marshland and nature reserves so you can enjoy the abundance of plants and wildlife.
