Newquay harbour on the South West Coast Path
Some photos from our 2020 and 2019 coastal backpacks and our rock climbing trips to the south west corner of the UK, to Cornwall and Devon.

We hiked for a week in April 2019 and in September 2020 along 2 sections of the 630 mile long South West Coast Path in England. The path itself takes a huge loop round the south west tip of England from Minehead to Bournemouth through Devon, Cornwall and Dorset.
In 2019 we walked a section from Bude to St Ives on the west coast of Cornwall. See our blog here.
In 2020 we walked on from St Ives round Land's End and Lizard to Falmouth.

Rock climbing in this area is very pleasant with some lovely sparkling granite, warm weather and great scenery. In 2013, 2010 and 2006 we visited the Lands End area of Cornwall and in 2001 we headed for the island of Lundy. Lundy is an island situated off the west coast of Devon in England. We went there mainly to do some rock climbing on the granite sea cliffs but the island has lots to offer those who have an interest in fresh air and the outdoors. There is also some superb accommodation available from the landmark trust. We stayed in a converted castle looking out to the atlantic.
