    AKA the A39

    Anyone done the coast hugging route?

    The Atlantic Highway

    Looks a good bet for a 10 or 12 day jaunt.

    I wouldn't call the A39 "coast hugging" just closer to coast than say the A30.

    I did around 40 years ago. And proper Wild Camping. Exeter to Lands End on the coast road and then up the north coast, on my pushbike with a sleeping bag and NO tent. We got a little wet most nights

    You can start at Lands end and follow coast to St Ives if you want to follow the coast check a map and you'll find a better route than the A39. After St Ives, Hayle, Portreath,St Agnes, Perran Porth, Newquay, Padstow, Polzeath, Port Isaac. Tintagel. Boscastle Now you've got started Have a good trip

    Yes,
    Done it a few times twice of which was Last year & Again this year I tend to treat it the same as the NC 500 & used it as an ‘Artery’ to take me to other areas of interest.
    It is a good road, But although you can often see the sea from the main road, it is in fact inland a bit.
    Just a pointer,,,Some of the Place the further South West you get can be ‘Tight n Hilly’ for a Motorhome & Parking needs to be thought about when having a wander around Thease wonderful villages & Coves a plenty.
