Family Walks

For inspirational and fun family walks along the South West Coast Path look no further. Kids will enjoy discovering the land of myths and legends, climbing hills and exploring secret coves linked to infamous smugglers. 

For tech savvy nature lovers – why not try a bit of geocaching for a modern day treasure hunt using GPS to search for hidden caches in the countryside.

Or try one of the South West Coast Path Treasure Trails that take in a short circular walk with a series of clues to solve along the way. At Stonebarrow Hill, near Charmouth in Dorset, the National Trust has created an audio trail that tells the tale of its smuggling past.

Even with a pushchair you can still get out and about – check out our easy access walks for a selection of routes free of stiles and steps along relatively firm and level paths.

These walks are perfect for children and parents in the school holidays or an active family weekend.
