About this walk

A great circular walk with some gentle inclines and stunning views. Generally a mud-free(ish) walk. Also gateway to the highest point on the south coast - Golden Cap. A definite 'must walk' as it is breathtaking up there. Keep dogs on leads at the top of the cliff as there have been a few canine deaths where the dog has chased a seagull over the edge. :(

    Thanks for this walk. We came from Dorchester and did 2 loops of the circular walk (1.5 mile each) , in the 2nd loop we went down to the woods part, will be lovely once the bluebells are out. Parking 50p per hour or free for national trust members. Golden cap views are wonderful, can't believe I have drove past that turn off hundreds of times. Thanks again. Tim and Jen ( and of course Ruby)

    Found this walk on here and decided to give it a try. Just did the circular walk - and the dogs loved it - we had seen it was wheelchair friendly which appealed as sometimes my wife needs to use her wheelchair - thankfully today she was having a good day as although it says wheelchair friendly I'm glad I didn't have to push her as the terrain in places very bumpy/rough stones sticking up etc. Will definately be back though ????

    Lovely circular walk round an ancient wood, virtually farm animal free and safe tho one of our dogs managed to get marooned in the ferns for ten minutes!

    Easy walk with 2 dogs, most of advised walk, the dogs were off lead. Road to car park is narrow but worth it.

    Brilliant walk and easy. You can walk to Golden Cap from here if you’re feeling energetic. Beautiful woods but not many squirrels 🐿

Location details

From Bridport head up the A35 towards Lyme Regis. As soon as you leave village of Chideock you start to climb hill (dual carriageway section). Stay in left hand lane when you reach the top, turn left before the layby. Left again and along badly maintained lane. At the end (a few hundred yards) turn right and that leads straight into the car park. Watch the speed humps they are vicious!
