There are some stunning walks right on the doorstop or a little further afield. We have put together a number of options to suit both those who just want a quick breath of fresh air or for those who fancy something a little bit more challenging. Take in the sea air on our recommended coastal walks or immerse yourself in the history of the area and see what this beautiful countryside has to offer. All of our walks include information on local restaurants or hostelries so that you can treat yourselves en route or at the end.

For examples of recommended walks please click on:

The Fleet Lagoon
Old Harry Rocks
Upwey and the surrounding area
