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

We enjoyed a wonderful week of walking the Northumberland Coast Path. Fantastic weather and stunning scenery throughout.

I was very pleased with all that you provided for my holiday from the initial phone call. Very helpful, friendly lady to the information pack, guidebook etc. The accommodation overall was of an excellent standard and in some cases far exceeded my expectations. Yours is the best holiday company I have used so far and I cannot see anyone doing better. Highly recommended. You thought of everything and have obviously taken trouble to research accommodation.

Prompt response to enquiry, holiday request fulfilled and we were notified of amendments quickly, giving us time to make decisions. Advice on where to eat in the evening, excellent range of accommodation, excellent support on the journey. Every holiday we have taken with Mickledore has been very slickly organised.
