Sightseeing
Our favourite and best places to escape to nature and local beauty.
One of the highest (if not the highest) hills in Dorset. Ancient woodland walk with an abundance of bluebells when in season. An amazing place for young children to play making dens and connecting with nature. There is limited off road parking at the bottom.

Colmer’s Hill is so often a backdrop, especially when walking in and around Bridport. It can often be forgotten. The steep climb makes it even more worthwhile, when you reach the top with stunning 360 views.
