Don't fall behind

Autumn Walks along the South West Coast Path.

Autumn means the crowds have gone home, but the coastal weather and sea temperature often remains warm enough for swimming.

At this time of year, headlands are great spots to see migrating birds making their back south. As the weather terms chillier, trees take on their lovely red and gold Autumn colours.

Whilst there no reason not to walk any part of the South West Coast Path at any time of year, we’ve chosen a selection of short walks that we think are particularly good at this time of the year. Discover some of our favourite Autumn Ambles.

  Don't forget, whatever the weather, gear up with 15% off at Cotswold Outdoor, available exclusively to all Association members.
