One of 2 trips that we do to the World Heritage coast line of the Jurassic Coast which explore both very different and contracsting ends of this 96 mile coastline - one of the finest coastal walks in the world. On this trip we visit the quieter end (mainly due to being that bit further from London). The Jurassic coast is a breathtaking coastline and well worthy of it's World Heritage status, indeed it was only the second natural World Heritage site to be designated in Britain
In stark contrast to the white chalk cliffs on our Lulworth Cove trip, these red cliffs were formed in a baking desert 240 million years ago at a time when dinosaurs were starting to appear leading to the naming of the Jurassic Coast after numerous dinosaur and fossil finds.
Gentler than many of our weekend walks we will follow some picturesque coastal paths along the cliff paths that offer us some picture postcard coastal views. We're staying in a lovely Arts and Crafts house that we're hiring exclusively for our group and it's conveniently situated on the edge of the fishing village of Beer and set in it's own grounds.
We've lined up two exciting coastal walks to see two different and contrasting sections of this coastline.
Friday 31st January
Head over to our accommodation in the coastal fishing village of Beer, Devon.
Saturday 1st February
Saturday's hike: Sidmouth to Beer
Distance: 9.5/10 miles (16 km)
Walking time: About 4/5 hours of walking with 3 main hills
This walk starts in the grand Georgian town of Sidmouth and follows a breathtaking trail along the coast. The section from Beer to Branscombe has been featured as one of the 'Sunday Times' top ten walks in England. Our trail forms part of the South West Coastal path and runs from Beer over Hooken Cliffs to Branscombe Mouth. The views across Lyme Bay and the red Triassic Devon cliffs are spectacular. It's a varied coastal walk with some great cliffs, wonderful views and delicate little trails through woodland and on the cliff tops.
Sunday 2nd February
Sunday's hike: Golden Cap circular
Distance: 6.5 miles (10.5km)
Walking time: About 3 hours of walking with 4 hills
