Walking the South West Coast Path

South West 8km / 5 miles

As a child, I spent so many evenings after school having picnics and rowing around Lulworth Cove in a dinghy with my parents. I walked across Lulworth Ranges to Worbarrow Bay regularly and so it’s safe to say I have grown up with a love of the area.

Bamford to Edale, via Ladybower

Laying between Bamford and Edale (at the foot of Kinder Scout), it makes for a perfect, easily extendable half-day walk with good views, which can happily end in a pub lunch in front of a cosy fire! The area also has great access by rail and easily navigable, so no need to have a designated driver if you fancy a pint at the end!
