Walking the South West Coast Path near Salcombe


Essentially because we provide a specialist service for hiking holidays in and around South Devon.


We are Richard and Cait and we feel lucky to live in South Devon, just 2 miles from the coast path and 6 miles from Dartmoor.

Having brought up 3 children and enjoyed many happy times by the coast and on the moor, we now enjoy sharing these delights with others.

Because we live here and know the region well, we can help with the small details that turn a good holiday into a great one.

Between us we've extensive experience in travel and tourism, so we understand what works well for those planning walking holidays. We also  know our local  sections of the Coast Path from Polperro to Torbay and on to East Devon's Jurassic Coast, the river trails along the Erme and Tamar Valleys, as well as the best of Southern Dartmoor . And we know the best places to stop for refreshments and stay overnight. 

So we can look after all the arrangements for you - planning your itinerary, booking accommodation, transporting your luggage - and we're on hand to support you during your trip.

Our aim is to ensure you enjoy a hassle-free hiking experience in South Devon.


We spent two wonderful weeks. Thank you so much for the organisation. We hope to come back soon.

We used Richard's services for 3 sections of the South West Coast Path - Plymouth to Noss Mayo, Mothecombe to Noss Mayo and Bigbury to Womwell. Each trip the service was excellent. Richard gave us tips on the parts of the path we were tackling and on the last day fitted us into his schedule to enable us to complete the South Devon section. Highly recommended and with many thanks

Would recommend Richard Price as got me out of tricky situation by transporting me round Erme estuary in Devon when there was an adverse tide.
Punctual & knowledgeable.
Saved me an additional 7 mile hike in very warm weather!

Richard was a great host - knowledgeable, gave us good advice and had walked the trails himself. Picked us up on schedule and our stuff always arrived ahead of us!

Had an excellent walking holiday managed by Hassle Free. Richard was a terrific contact - looked after us really well and was always available when we needed help and advice. His knowledge of the route we were following meant he always had good advice for us. Would definitely recommend Hassle Free to anyone looking for a well organised and supported walking holiday.

Five of us hiked another section of the Southwest Coast Path for 10 days east of Plymouth this September, and Richard arranged it all for us, planning the itinerary, booking the accomodation, providing advice and moving our bags on from one place to the next, so we did not have to carry them. It all worked out very well. We were very pleased, as finding appropriate accommodation in this section of the path is not straightforward. He lives locally.
