Great Places Walk with your Dog ~
Walking Your Dog
We have a dedicated dog exercise area where there is plenty of space for ball throwing and fun. Opposite the park entrance we have a walk to our woodland area which is also a fabulous space for exercising your dog.
Off site there are numerous local places that are perfect for dog walks such as Shute Woods which is just the other side of the main A35 so you can walk to it. It’s easy to walk through these woods to Kilmington (stop for refreshments at the pub!)
There are plenty of country lanes around the caravan park but if you don’t mind a drive then you can let your dog off the lead and enjoy some stunning scenery while you walk.
Most of these recommendations have the option of a short or longer walk.
Golden Cap; stunning walks along the Jurassic Coast with miles of footpaths and a small trek up to the trig point at Golden Cap. You can park at one of two National Trust car parks (with ticket machines).
Langdon Hill Woods (nr Morecombelake) has an all ability circular trail through the woods and then peels off through the fields up to Golden Cap;
or park at Stonebarrow (nr Charmouth) where there are toilets and a seasonal shop. Stonebarrow has a flat gravel track for about 1 1/2 miles as well as footpaths all over the cliff (25 miles in total) that head up to Golden Cap for the more energetic.
Just off the B3165 road towards Crewkerne, this National Trust site is an ancient hill fort and is a popular spot for local dog walkers. A large open space in the centre, it offers fantastic views over the Marshwood Vale and the Jurassic Coast as well as shaded paths though the beech woods. The walk can be extended to Coney’s Castle or down hill into local villages.
Nearby are more lovely woods around Whitchurch Canonicorum and Wootton Fitzpaine.
A huge choice of woods and heathland for walkers, with or without dogs, such as Trinity Hill near Lyme Regis, Holyford Woods near Seaton or Colyford Common. If you fancy a short stretch of the South West Coast path then try Seaton to Beer (2 miles from parking at Seaton Hole) or Beer to Branscombe, also 2 miles. There are plenty of places to eat and drink in Beer and a cafe on the beach in Branscombe. Some of these walks are detailed on our own Blog page or take a look at the Flip Flops or Wellies blog by clicking here.
