South West Coast Path: Dorset

The South West Coast path is England’s longest waymarked long-distance footpath and National Trail. The area is full of interesting wildlife and birdlife, and you may even spot dolphins and seals. Our Dorset holiday covers a stunning section of the path with amazing geology and scenery as you walk along the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Near Weymouth there is a choice of routes, either stay on the coast or follow the South Dorset Ridgeway through one of the UK’s most significant ancient ceremonial landscapes.

Client Feedback

The walking holiday exceeded our expectations – excellent! While everything was so well organised, we could carefree enjoy the whole day. The good organisation gives also confidence in the next B&B. The price/quality ratio was perfect.

The holiday was well organised and everything ran smoothly. Having met other walkers on the trail either “going it alone” or using other tour operators I think Mickledore seems better in comparison especially on accommodation and taxi transfers.Keep up the good work.

Your service is excellent throughout. The B&Bs you have booked for us have been of a very high standard. You met our requirements about where we wanted to stay (and where we didn’t) exactly. Luggage transfer arrangements were excellent.
