The route is quite a different experience in each direction.
“It’s a completely different route heading from Lynmouth to Nether Stowey, away from the coast, across the moor, over the edge of the Quantocks and into rural, pastoral, gentle Nether-Stowey-land. There’s a totally different focus and feeling, heading away from the busy open coastline into the secretive hinterland”. Ruth Luckhurst, travel writer.
There is a route guide available for either direction. Each guide contains some words highlighted in bold purple – these are points of interest – all referred to in the ‘Things to Discover’ pages and selected ones in each direction have some additional info in boxes on the route guides.
Certificates are available from Coleridge Cottage and Lynmouth Pavilion along with visitor books that people can sign before, during and at the end of the route at Coleridge Cottage, Porlock Visitor Centre and Lynmouth Pavilion.
There is also a Coleridge Way Path Companion guide (£10 plus £2.50 P&P) that takes the reader along the 51 miles of the path with facts, stories and anecdotes about the great poet himself, the people who live (and lived) along the path and the places Coleridge would have visited.
