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.

Lovely walk, great views. Last mile into Seatown was impassible without wellies, some very large and deep puddles after a few days of heavy rain. Had to make a detour through the neighbouring field but we managed to finish, rejoining the path further down. The Anchor pub is lovely and friendly, great food.
