The Coleridge Way is a 51 mile route through glorious scenery, running from Nether Stowey in the East to Lynmouth at it’s Westernmost point.

This walking holiday week will include three full days of walking, covering the Western half of the route (Wheddon Cross to Lynmouth – we walked the Eastern end in 2020) led by local guide and enthusiast Roger Phipps.

Alongside this, there will be easier walks on offer each day, of up to 6 miles approximately, under the friendly, knowledgeable guidance of Nan Ward.

Whether you choose to walk with Roger or with Nan – or with a combination of the two – the week will offer an enjoyable and sociable few days’ walking, through stunning and varied scenery and charming villages, with time in the evenings to relax and socialise with some informal entertainment too. A packed lunch will be provided for each walking day, with a choice of sandwiches, crisps, fruit and a drink.

Who is it for?

The Coleridge Way route is moderately challenging and each day will cover between 8 and 10 miles, so you’ll need a reasonable level of fitness.

Nan’s walks aim to be less challenging, but may still include steep climbs so, again, a reasonable level of fitness is required.

Come prepared for all weathers! Study walking footwear will be required.

We’ll be arranging transport for the long distance route in a mini bus. For the shorter walks, car sharing will be required / expected with appropriate remuneration for drivers organised within the group.

The Team

Roger Phipps & Nan Ward have been leading walking holidays at Halsway for many years. Both live locally, and have a great love and knowledge of the Quantocks and Exmoor. When not on a hilltop somewhere, Roger can be found dancing with Taunton Deane Morris Men, or compering the monthly ‘Sunday Club’ acoustic nights at the Manor. Nan enjoys researching local history to include in her walks.
