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 week will include three full days of walking, covering the eastern half of the route (we plan to walk the Western end next year) led by local guide and enthusiast Roger Phipps. You’ll be walking approximately half of the route, as follows:
- Monday: Arrive at Halsway from 4pm
- Tuesday: Nether Stowey to Bicknoller (9 3/4 miles)
- Wednesday: Bicknoller to Roadwater (9 miles)
- Thursday: Roadwater to Wheddon Cross (8 miles)
- Friday: Depart after a big Halsway breakfast
The week is intended to 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.
Who’s it For?
The route is moderately challenging and each day will cover between 8 and 10 miles, so you’ll need a reasonable level of fitness. That said, day two is a slightly easier (flatter!) day!
We will have some volunteer drivers to assist with transport, but some car-sharing will also be extremely helpful to minimize the numbers of vehicles!
Roger Phipps has been leading walking holidays at Halsway for many years now. He lives locally, and has a great love and knowledge of the Quantocks and Exmoor. When not on a hilltop somewhere, he can be found dancing with Taunton Deane Morris Men, or compering monthly ‘Sunday Club’ acoustic nights at the Manor!
Roger will have a team of supporters over the week, to make sure you’re well looked after when walking!
