SWCP - Land's End to Lyme Regis - account
« on: 18:40:26, 24/06/18 »
Having just completed a 289 mile section of the South West Coast Path as preparation for doing LEJOG next year, I've blogged about the first day, Land's End to Penzance for those who may be interested. The rest is to follow.

Sounds like the yha you stayed at in penzance. I didn't rate it much too. Cheap accommodation for standard hotel goers. Think I was the only walker there. The washing machines looked unused which is a shame as most more remote yha don't seem to replace washing machines when they break down. Must have been warm on those cliffs this month...

That's right. The New Zealand couple were walking a section of the SWCP and there were also cyclists there. I'll always opt for YHAs where available, particularly for the number of calories you can consume for breakfast, when provided, but also for the drying rooms, enabling you to wash and dry kit overnight.

SWCP Land's End to Lyme Regis, Day Seven - Hemmick Beack to Par Sands. Loving youth hostels, hating Eden Project YHA.

Day 8 and a glorious, sunny Sunday for walking Par Sands to Polperro, my favourite fishing village.

We live in an odd country Tony. If you'd whacked the seagull with the plank for stealing your cream tea the RSPCA would want you locked up for life whereas if a human had tried to rob you of your treat you would be entitled to lay them out with your plank and just claim ' reasonable force' if challenged.


I have a good chuckle most nights reading your reports  ;D
