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.
