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 have enjoyed two walking holidays organised by you in 2019, both faultless on your behalf and thoroughly enjoyed.

Coast to Coast, September 2019

This was a fabulous holiday and experience for me that I will remember always. The planning, preparation and knowledge of the Coast to Coast that Mickledore have was the primary reason for the venture being such a success. You clearly have a great portfolio of hosts who enjoy delivering genuine hospitality. The facilities were also a far cry from the brands that are such a part of modern life and that was perfect for me.

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.
