Anyone been and have any places/outings/walks outside of the usual recommendations please?

I love Swanage and went there loads as a kid.

Not sure what the usual recommendations would be?

Cliff walk to Worth Matravers is good but I guess you already know that ... Nice little pub there which often has live music. Ale and pies and a tiny museum at the back.

Corfe castle. You can get a steam train from Swanage to Corfe (and back). It's fun and the people who run it are lovely.

Weymouth (prejudiced as my mum was from Weymouth). Lovely beach and harbour.

Lulworth Cove (but gets very crowded). Durdle Door, just a short walk from Lulworth Cove.

Will think of more in the morningsmiling smiley

Swannery at Abbotsbury is wonderful but can't remember how near it is to Swanage.

Upwey Wishing Well ditto. Fantastic gardens and a lovely little tea room.

Studland is very picturesque and has a nice nature reserve, or if you prefer your wildlife another way you can let it all hang out at the beach...smiling smiley

Will you have the use of a car, siousxiesue?

And how long is your stay, and what distance from Swanage would you be willing to travel in a day, or are you mainly looking for things within a relatively short distance?

I'll be with friends with a car but prefer to walk/bus places not a huge distance away

Maiden castle well known but always fabulous for a walk esp early morning/evening (also great for a run). If you’re feeling adventurous there’s a barrow in a nearby field...

The blue pool near wareham


Preston beach east of Weymouth for a swim away from the Weymouth crowds or swim off the Nothe?

Tyneham village - twelve miles west of Swanage.

+ Ringstead beach, west of Lulworth Cove

PS and thread drift....
If anyone is considering a holiday in Dorset, I have a 2 bed apartment in Weymouth. Send me a PM for more information.
