This is a beautiful stretch of coastline that is rarely explored due to the military ranges (don’t worry the guides will make sure they're closed). Passing through the abandoned village of Tyneham, where time stopped in 1943. This stretch of the coast path is filled with history from World War 2 and is one of the most remote parts of the coast path. Finish with a relaxing dip in the beautiful waters around Durdle Door.

Dorset is normally sunny and calm but sometimes it gets wet and windy. Full waterproofs are a must for the trip. The guides also have plenty of space for you to dry your wet gear.

  • A sleeping bag
  • Swimwear (if you want to take a dip at a few stops along the way)
  • Walking boots whihc you know are comfortable (not brand new fresh out the box)
  • Comfortable athletic wear / walking clothes whihc you are happy to walk all day in. Jeans aren't recommended.
  • Fleeces and warm layers (for lunchtime and evening times)
  • Sun cream, a hat, a day pack, a water bottle and any editional snacks!

It's a private site with pre pitched bell tents. There are two single beds with fitted sheets in each tent. There are large covered areas for social evenings. Campfires and sunsets (what Dorset is all about).  

Each day is between 10 to 15km so you'll need a moderate level of fitness.
