The S. W. C. P. begins on the sea front at Minehead, climbing up onto rugged Exmoor with its purple terrain and high coastal cliffs, passing the tiny Culbone Church, with spectacular cliff and coastal scenery all the way to the highest point at Lynton, then descending to softer terrain from Combe Martin with Sandy Bays tiny coves and rocky headlands, the long sandy beaches at Woolacombe and Braunton. Round The Taw/Torridge Estuary skirting the Market Town of Barnstaple and the port of Bideford. The old shipbuilding town of Appledore with its narrow streets and the long sandy beach at Westward Ho! The path rounds Bideford Bay on the edge of fields and scrub oak woods littered with wild flowers, to the old fishing village of Bucks Mills and Clovelly with its 17th century harbour and steep cobbled street. On through wooded cliff tops round Hartland Point to Hartland Quay.
