South West Coast Path Accommodation and Other Services
RambleFest displays details of The South West Coast Path accommodation, guidebooks and maps, pubs, transport, and map links for locations en route.
Because of its length, 630 miles, very few people walk the route in one go. Rather, they walk sections of it at different times.
Similarly, the guidebooks (see below) split the route into sections – although each publisher splits the route differently!
Please note that while we display the guidebooks and maps for the whole route, we include Accommodation, Pubs, Camping and Public Transport for only the Minehead to Padstow section (see Table of Services further down the page).

Notes on South West Coast Path Accommodation
Accommodation along the South West Coast Path is plentiful. We have split accommodation into Hotels & Inns and Bed & Breakfast. Guest House accommodation is included with Bed and Breakfast, and while we realise many of them are better than some hotels, in order to avoid confusion we have opted for the simpler option. We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome South West Coast Path accommodation recommendations.
South West Coast Path Restaurants and Pubs
As with accommodation, there are many restaurants and pubs along the South West Coast Path. We have attempted to give as much information as possible, especially if pubs serve real ale and/or food. However, restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.

South West Coast Path Public Transport
We have given information on public transport not just for the start and finishing points of the South West Coast Path, but also for places in between. More information is always welcome.
