Couch to Coast Ilfracombe

Join us in 2020 to explore the Coast Path around Ilfracombe

We've organised a series of short Coast Path walks starting in 2020, aimed at people taking their first steps into being active and who would like to take part in gentle, social, guided activity in nature. These sessions are designed to introduce you to the beauty and variety of the South West Coast Path and help you plan future trips to the Coast Path.

We will be exploring the stretch of coastline around Ilfracombe. Each session will be led by an experienced leader and each week we will be building up the distance gradually so that on the last session, we complete a full 5km. Each session will be followed by refreshments.

Each week we will be taking a different look at the Path such as its local history and wildlife.


Due to COVID-19, we have postponed our original dates, which were due to start in April. We will aim to start later in the year. We will email all registered participants when dates have been established.

Session details

There was an introductory session to the project at the Lantern, High Street, Ilfracombe which will include an introduction to the project, refreshments and a short seafront walk. After this, walks will be held every fortnight and there will be 6 walks in total.

More details about all of the walks will be given at the introductory session.
