As proud sponsors of the South West Coast Path we are thrilled to be working with the Association and their brilliant ‘Make a Coast Path Pledge’ campaign for January 2020.
A pledge can be for mind, body or environment, but it must be about using the Coast Path. Last year, over 800 people pledged to make a difference to the environment, with many saying they would proactively beach clean and litter pick on the Path. The winning pledge however, was made by Sarah who said she would use the South West Coast Path to help friends struggling with their emotional wellbeing connect with nature.
Whilst the positive effects of fulfilling your pledge should be reward enough, South West Coast Path will also be selecting their favourite pledge to win a two-night walking break courtesy of us at Devon & Cornwall Holidays!
You can choose to stay at one of five stunning hotels, all located a stone’s throw from the Coast Path, with breakfast, dinner and packed lunch included, so you can explore the Path in style and retire from an exciting day’s walking to the lap of luxury.
There can only be a few hotels anywhere in the world with such a spectacular setting as The Saunton Sands. The hotel sits on the cliff tops of the North Devon coast overlooking miles of pristine sands stretching as far as the eye can see. Built in the 1930s, this gorgeous Art Deco hotel was first opened in 1933 by Sir John Christie, who also built Glyndebourne opera house at the same time. With chandeliers in the dining room, bold, bright geometric carpets and gold finishing touches, the décor remains in keeping with the Art Deco architecture and heritage of this hotel. The first-rate facilities include a tennis court, outdoor pool and sensational new ocean-view spa, designed with well-being in mind. This hotel is in a class of its own and offers contemporary beachside living at its best.
This iconic ivy-fronted hotel is set in 250 acres of private grounds in an amazing secluded cliff top location with spectacular views overlooking St Austell Bay. Enjoy fine dining in the award-winning Bay View Restaurant or more relaxed dining in the stylish Taste Brasserie, a heavenly spa and one of the best 18 hole championship golf courses in the country.
With glorious sweeping views of Lyme Bay, The Victoria Hotel is one of England’s finest hotels, perfectly situated for exploring the timeless charms of Sidmouth, a picturesque Regency town. This magnificent luxury hotel oozes traditional values of superb quality, sumptuous cuisine and impeccable service. This 4-star hotel boasts a luxury Spa and both indoor and outdoor pools for perfect relaxation alongside award-winning dining in elegant surroundings. This hotel is a beautiful example of Victorian architecture blended with home comforts.
Originally the summer residence of a grand Victorian family, the Belmont retains the warm ambience of a family home with friendly staff and the traditional service that is hard to find nowadays. Enjoy uninterrupted views of the sea looking out over Lyme Bay where you can enjoy a Devon cream tea or a sun downer on the Terrace. Dining at the Belmont Restaurant is an unforgettable experience, with traditional Silver Service, chandeliers twinkling and the pianist playing; complemented by the dress code of jacket and tie, or you can dance the night away at the weekly dinner dances. The Belmont Hotel is set within three acres of award-winning gardens dating back to the Victorian era with a sun terrace, woodland walk, stream and the charming kitchen garden.
Located on the coastline, The Royal Duchy has a fabulous position on Falmouth’s seafront, with stunning views across the bay to Pendennis Castle. The Royal Duchy Hotel has a relaxed Mediterranean feel with palm fringed sun terraces and just a short stroll from the sandy beach. The Pendennis Restaurant has won AA Rosettes for its creative menu which combines classic British cuisine with Mediterranean and Asian flavours, taking inspiration from the fresh Cornish produce in and around Falmouth and Cornwall. With its heated indoor pool, sauna and spa treatments, this stylish hotel is the perfect place to relax.
The South West Coast Path is a powerful catalyst for positive change. It can transform our bodies, still our minds and enrich our souls by connecting us intimately us with nature and the ocean.
How will you plan to harness the Path’s potential and make some positive changes for the year ahead?
“With almost all of the eleven hotels that we offer breaks with sat on (or very close to) the South West Coast Path, we are thrilled to be working with the Association on celebrating and preserving this great asset to the region - and one of the best walks in the world. Our guests and local communities love to explore the path, taking in the heritage, geology and breathtaking scenery along the way, and we are passionate about it being maintained for future generations to continue to enjoy” - Dave Marshall, Manager, Devon and Cornwall Holidays
