Yvonne’s Bite Size Walks in Dorset
Bite Size Walks are my way to share my life. I love food, the British coast line and sunsets. So not been particularly fit I decided to embark on walking parts of the South West Coast Path but with Westerly aspects for the sun!

Why did I walk here?
I wanted a challenge and also I wanted to look for an ideal location to buy a house, so what better way than to go up hill and down dale and get in to parts and see areas you would not other while see when you have your car and to walk for my health and well being. I suffer with my back and have had plantar fasciitis and been on a big dose of steroids I have decided to get out in the fresh air and walk my self better (as it worked “ You Bet” I kept singing the song “ I’ve had the time of my life”).

This adventure is not about the miles I walk, but it’s about getting out in the fresh air and enjoying the adventure. Inspired by Julia Bradbury’s walking programme, I thought that could be me walking on that white sandy beach in Wales and then when Julia was sat at the top of Golden Cap in Dorset, I knew that could be me.

Basing myself at a nice family hotel at Eype I thought it would be a great starting point to go East towards Weymouth or West towards Golden Cap and beyond.

Walk Eype to Seatown to Chideock, catch a bus to West Bay via Bridport and then walk over the hill back to Eype – about 4 miles

Day Two – Saturday

I did quite a bit for me yesterday, so thought I would take a walk to the Down House Farm for a spot of lunch. On the path towards the farm I came across a couple and we were discussing the weather and the wildlife, I mentioned bees and the chap said ‘don’t mention bees…

Day Three – Sunday

Lyme Regis The carpark half way down the hill would be ideal for the car as there was a footpath and steps 114 down to the foreshore. What a lovely decent down in to Lyme Regis. What was fantastic is when you looked back up the cliff side you noticed the allotments over looking the…

Day Four – Monday

Golden Cap, the highest point on the entire south coast of England. I was told about a National Trust carpark at Langdon. It’s not sign posted probably because of the accessibility. It has a dodgy exit to cross such a busy road. I parked up at Langdon Hill as there were 2 routes I could…

Day Five – Tuesday

Today I was to walk to West Bay to catch the bus to Weymouth. What was lovely on this little 1/2 mile walk were the benches on the hill side with plaques that people over their life time had enjoyed sitting and I can under stand why. If you are a ‘Broadchurch’ fan there is…

Day Six – Wednesday

I wanted to be up and about early to catch the open top bus – to me its the finest way to investigate a new town or city as I know you can hop on and off. But for me I like to do the full tour and remember then the places and then to…
