Summary: The Coleridge Way is a waymarked long distance footpath which starts in the Quantock Hills, passing through the villages of Holford, West Quantoxhead and Bicknoller before moving onto the Brendon Hills, within Exmoor National Park, through the villages of Monksilver, Roadwater and Luxborough, across Lype Hill to Wheddon Cross. The route then crosses an area of moorland at Dunkery Hill to the woodland village of Horner and moves towards the coast at Porlock on the Bristol Channel. From here the route climbs through Worthy Woods before descending into the Doone Valley passing Oare, Malmsmead, Brendon and Watersmeet before finishing by the Pavilion National Park Centre in Lynmouth where it intersects with the South West Coast Path. The landscapes include heathland, moorland, deciduous and coniferous woodland, farmland, deeply wooded valleys. (Source: Wikipedia)
