  • "SOUTH WEST COASTAL PATH"..... Between 'START POINT' and 'SHALDON' this path offers rugged scenic open views of beaches, cliffs and the wildlife that lives there.....Best be prepared properly with correct foot ware and a light water, wind proof jacket, take your phone too, when walking this section of coast line.....You will probably find a nice place here where you can sit in complete silence, to listen to the wild birds, the rhythm of the waves......" SOUTH WEST COASTAL PATH"......"SOUTH DEVON".....
  • Beautiful views and a well-maintained footpath!

Where to stay in Plymouth

Lodging in Plymouth range from stylish brand names and cozy B&Bs, to affordable self-catering apartments and private inns. To be near the city's main attractions, stay near the waterfront. Farther inland, you can explore a world of less expensive but just as comfortable boutique hotels and hostels, all within walking distance of the city's finest shops, restaurants, and bars. For an even less expensive alternative, consider staying in the quiet suburbs. Though a bit far from the city center, suburban hotels offer top-quality rooms at a fraction of the cost of the big hotel chains.
