Walking Breaks

South West Coast Path Section 1 (includes the entire Exmoor coastline)

Sunday 10th to Thursday 14th April 2022

If you have always wanted to walk the South West Coast Path, or wish to revisit it and would like to join in for a guided walking holiday, we have a break for the first 28 miles of the coast path from Minehead to Hunters Inn on the above dates.


Spectacular views will be enjoyed all along the route. The daily walks are between 7 to 10 miles and paced to suit all. Your stay is based at the Yarn Market Hotel with the benefit of not having to pack luggage for transfers as you sleep in the same bed every night, and transport is provided to and from the start and finish of each day's walk.

Exmoor Walking Holiday Weekends

Exmoor walking holidays offers guided walking breaks 4 times a year on a quarterly basis.​

They are usually offered as a 2 night stay arriving on Friday, walking on Saturday and Sunday, then departing for home after the walk on Sunday. The breaks are on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast basis and include guided, packed lunches on walking days, tea/coffee flasks filled and any transport that may be required for the walks. You can also use our boot and drying room, though we hope you won't need to!

The breaks are offered to members at a special rate. Membership costs just £10 per person, and you save the cost of your membership even if you attend only one weekend each year. Standard prices apply to non members.

Details of the dates of the walking holidays will be advised in a quarterly email newsletter sent out by our regular guide, Kathy Oliver (to all members).
