A trail that passes through Cornwall has been named among the 15 greatest walks in Britain, according to The Telegraph.

South West Coast Path which starts at Minehead, goes around the Cornish coast and finishes in Dorset was included on the list.

The list was created to try and pick the best walks in Britain that were also gargantuan in length.

The publication wrote: "But that is what we have tried to do here, choosing something for everyone, whether your idea of a great walk takes two weeks or a long weekend; whether you want fantastic scenery or bags of cultural interest; a good quality path, fewer people to contend with, or simply a route that is well marked and easy to follow."

What did The Telegraph say about South West Coast Path?

The South West Coast Path walk starts at Minehead in Somerset, before travelling along the coast into Devon, Cornwall and finishing in Dorset.

You'll need to set aside a decent amount of time for it as the 630-mile-long trail should take around 30-50 days to complete.

The Telegraph writes: "Big, beautiful and brimming with smuggling lore, Arthurian legend and maritime magic, the South West Coast Path National Trail may well be Britain’s best.

Simple ways to create a wildlife-friendly garden  

"It’s almost unrelentingly spectacular. OK, there are a few sub-par bits (Newquay, Land’s End, er, Par) but what do you expect over 630 miles? And the highs far, far out-weigh the lows.

"Built to allow coastguards to patrol the shore, this well-waymarked trail rollercoaster alongside sublime turquoise seaside, cute coves, fishing villages, nature reserves and world-class sights, from the cliff-side Minack Theatre to the Jurassic Coast’s epic rocks.

"Avoid high summer: packed beaches and booked-up B&Bs can taint even the SWCP’s sparkle. But, as most tourists don’t stray far from the main honeypots, the trail is the best way to grab some southwest for yourself."

Its best viewpoint is said to be Kynance Cove in Cornwall, whilst the best pub on the route is said to be The Gunnard's Head with "rooms perched on the Cornish coast near Zennor".
