Walking in North Devon
The South West Coast Path
Lower Campscott is ideally situated as a base to explore the North Devon section of the South West Coast Path.
Originally created by coastguards, patrolling the south west peninsula looking out for smugglers, the South West Coast Path is is 630 miles long and is the longest National Trail in the country. Starting at Minehead in Somerset it runs along the coastline of Exmoor, continuing along the coast of North Devon into Cornwall. It follows the entire coastline of Cornwall, goes across the mouth of the River Tamar and continues into Devon. After running along the south coast of Devon it then follows the Dorset coastline before finally ending at Poole Harbour.
