South West Coast Path: Dorset

The South West Coast Path is England’s longest waymarked long-distance footpath and National Trail. Our Dorset holidays cover a stunning section of the path with amazing geology and scenery as you walk along the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site.

The area is full of interesting wildlife and birdlife, and you may even spot dolphins and seals. 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.

Our Holidays

We have a range of walking holidays along the entire length of the South West Coast Path. All routes are well worth undertaking in their own right and you can take on each section separately until you’ve completed the whole path.

When choosing your route, please bear in mind that the actual distance walked on any day may sometimes vary by up to 2 miles/3 km from the quoted distances, depending on the exact location of your accommodation. The mileages shown are typical door to door distances for each day.

Client Feedback

All accommodations and helpful information, services, etc., were perfect for first-time visitors from the U.S. like us. We’ve not encountered such “walking holiday” tours before here in the States, even though we’ve hiked here at home fairly extensively, and we now understand what a pleasure it is to experience a travel service such as yours.
