The South West Coast Path from Exmouth to Lyme Regis is most famous for its rugged, historic beauty - sweeping beaches, dramatic cliffs, wildlife and quiet picturesque coastal villages.
Beginning on the East Devon coast in the bustling seaside town of Exmouth this walk moves onwards but almost back in time as it enters the rugged and amazing Jurassic Coast. Leaving behind the red sandstone cliffs, stroll through lush green woodland onwards to the contrasting stunning white chalk cliffs of West Dorset.
Visit the quaint village and promenade at Budleigh Salterton; the Otter Estuary Nature Reserve; Victorian Sidmouth, described by John Betjeman as “the loveliest seaside resort in England” before discovering the pretty shingle beach and small fishing fleet at Beer.
One of the highlights is the Lyme Regis Undercliffs Nature Reserve, a unique section of the coast where the ground has broken away, leaving the cliff-tops now standing well inland creating a spectacular woodland wilderness.
Now leaving the Undercliff area you move from Devon into Dorset and towards your destination of delightful Lyme Regis with her world famous fossil sites and historic Cobb and harbour.
This walk is one of true contrasts offering fine coastal walking and experiences; sheer rugged cliffs, lush woodland, fascinating geological formations tiny smugglers coves …….with a wealth of wildlife such as roe deer, red squirrels and puffins.
