Day 1: Arrive at Exmouth
You make your own way to Exmouth in Devon. We can assist with transfers if necessary.   Car parking is available for the duration of the walk.
Budleigh Salterton, Devon on SWCP walking holiday Day 2: Exmouth to Sidmouth.    13 miles     moderate/strenuous
This is the start of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. The path leaves Exmouth and makes its way to Budleigh Salterton. You cut inland briefly to cross the River Otter and then along the top of the characteristic red sandstone cliffs of Devon to Sidmouth.
Branscombe, Devon on SWCP walking holiday
Day 3: Sidmouth to Seaton.   10 miles   severe
Heading out of Sidmouth you cross the River Sid and make your way up to Salcombe Hill. Following an interesting zigzagging path along the cliffs you eventually come to the quaint village of Branscombe. Leaving Branscombe you walk through the Hooken Undercliff, a chaotic, jumbled wooded slope formed by a landslip in 1790, with red marls, yellow greensand and towers of chalk. After rounding Beer Head you walk through Beer and on to Seaton.
Lyme Regis, Dorset on SWCP walking holiday Day 4: Seaton to Lyme Regis.    7 miles     moderate
Walking through the Undercliff between Seaton and Lyme Regis is like being in a jungle. The rocky shores of Lyme Regis and Charmouth are famous for yielding fossils from the Jurassic period.
Day 5: Lyme Regis to Burton Bradstock.    11.5 miles    strenuous
The Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre down at the beach is full of fossils and is worth a visit. The cliffs are unfortunately very unstable and so the coast path is a little way inland but still affords great views of the Isle of Portland.
Charmouth, Dorset on SWCP walking holiday
Abbotsbury, Dorset on SWCP walking holiday Day 6: Burton Bradstock to Abbotsbury.  8 miles   moderate
The cliffs here give way to the long pebbly beach of Chesil Bank. The pebbles are bean-sized at this end of the beach, and gradually get larger until they are potato sized on the Isle of Portland.
Day 7: Abbotsbury to Weymouth.   13 miles      moderate/easy    
On leaving Abbotsbury the path, surprisingly, does not go along Chesil Beach but works it way over rolling hills, through fields and past woodlands a little way in from the coast. Then it follows the shores of West Fleet Lagoon until reaching Ferry Bridge, where a narrow spit of lands connects with the Isle of Portland.

Day 8: Depart after breakfast
We can transfer you to your car or station.
