Have your say

It’s a beautiful part of the world. And its worth exploring by foot to make sure you see as much as you can.

These three guides are perfect for the walker as they are full of advice and fit nicely into the pocket too!

The Jurassic Coast offers chances for cliff and downland walks, which are also short enough for a lazy day on the beach or if you are feeling more strenuous, a long hike.

This is World Heritage coastline and named after a 60-million-year span of geology. There is lots to see and do on the way too, from the fossil forest of Lulworth Cove to the one-time red desert of Budleigh Salterton.

The Two Moors Way features Devon’s Coast to Coast route, which combines the well-established way, with the Erme-Plym Trail starting or finishing at Wembury in South Devon.

The route crosses two of South-West England’s magnificent moorlands, Dartmouth and Exmoor and gives the walker the chance to experience all that this rural county has to offer.

Walking in Cornwall is full of magical walks ranging from two to eight miles and explores a range of landscapes from wild Atlantic coastal paths to easy strolls to visit ancient villages, standing stones and stone circles.

For people wanting solitude and a real wilderness, Bodmin Moor is the place to experience and after all that walking, surely you deserve a pasty or two!
