One of the nicest walks on the South Coast with good views of the bay towards Charmouth and to the east Chesil Beach. Two fairly stiff climbs but well worth it for the view on a good day. The circular walk starts at the car park in Seatown which is opposite the dog friendly Anchor Inn. The Inn has a good selection of ales and a decent menu. There are several stiles on the walk which make it impractical for pushchairs and cattle can be found in some fields so dogs must be kept under control. The ground is generally firm but can be boggy in some areas after heavy rain. Show more

A pretty easy stretch of the coast path, especially for 20 miles. There's a bit of a hill in the middle of the stretch, near Abbotsbury, but in general this walk is nice and flat. There is, however, one section right as you get into Weymouth that involves climbing up a fallen cliff side using a rope. There are a couple of bits walking on the gravel bank of Chesil Beach (given more limelight through ian McEwan's book, Chesil Beach) which are a little tiring but thankfully the path doesn't run along the outer Chesil Bank for the entire 15 miles of its length to Portland!

Nice circular route starting at The Ilchester Arms - a traditional 16th century country pub, taking in Shutes lane and Hell Lane and Down House Tea rooms. Only real negative is crossing the very busy A35.Show more

A circular walk from Bridport in Dorset. This walk starts at East Street car park in Bridport, follows various footpaths through little parishes and climbs a big hill that gives wondrous views of the valley containing Bridport and West Bay, including other notable hills such as Colmers Hill. The route follows a mixture of roadside pavements, stone tracks and unmade footpaths through fields. There is one fairly strenuous climb. You will need to negotiate some kissing gates plus one stile on route. Allow 2.5 hours.Show more
