A Great Coastal Walk to the West

There are four enticing walk prospects to the west from Beach House for the stroller, keener walker, the serious and the adventurer. All start going up the gravel path on West Cliff and tackling the first modest cliff before coming down for a swim at the cosy Eype Mouth Beach. Eype House, a few metres inland, has its own shop, catering for every day needs as well as serving teas, coffees, cream teas, ice creams and snacks in the garden.

For a real treat it is worth tackling the next section through the car park at Eype Mouth, past the old wooden beach house on the edge of the cliff, over the stile and onto the South West Coast Path on Monarch’s Way and through Down House Farm. Half a mile or so another stile is to be climbed for a right turn towards Down House Café, another half mile or so inland. This is a real gastronomic treat with great views over the Chesil Beach to Portland in the far distance.

Spectacular Scenic Approach to West Bay

B3157

Coming from Dorchester and the east there is a chance to experience one of the great sights of Lyme Bay and the coastal sweep of the 96 mile Jurassic Coast. On the outskirts of Winterborne Abbas on the A35 take the left slip road to Portesham and Abbotsbury. Just after the top of the long hill towards Portesham there is a one lane road signposted Gorwell. This will take you down Bishop’s Way and into Abbotsbury after a splendid sight of Portland on your left and St Catherine’s Chapel ahead of you.

Windy, but warm in the Sun

food fest

We started with a grey day and fresh south-westerly wind that drove many to the last day of the Bridport Beer and Food Festival. By 3 p.m. the sun broke through and we’re in a typical June day, still windy but warm in the sun. Next week promises to be better. https://www.bridportfoodfestival.co.uk/
