Walking & Hiking

From boosting fitness, to improving mental wellbeing – and even helping us in our social lives, walking and hiking offers all kinds of tangible benefits and there is no better location to enjoy this popular past time than in the heart of Dorset. From guided fossil walks along the Jurassic Coast to exploring the pretty villages and locations that inspired Thomas Hardy’s Wessex, Dorset offers something for all the family. Our hotel teams can arrange local guides, walking maps and prepare delicious picnics to enhance the experience. We are also a pet friendly hotel, which means you can bring your dog!
