It is impossible to have a great holiday if you are unhappy with your accommodation. A high standard of quality holiday accommodation is one of the hallmarks of Footscape, since we hand-pick all the hotels, inns and B&Bs that we use. All rooms have ensuite or private bath and/or shower.

If you are on your own or would like a room to yourself, you will usually be given a single occupancy of a double or twin room.

On our inn to inn walking holidays, standards can sometimes vary, as there is often little or no choice of accommodation along the trail, although most overnight stops are very comfortable indeed, especially on our Undiscovered Dorset walking holiday. Please try to book early, so that we can secure the best accommodation for you.

A2 a comfortable B&B (guest house) or village inn
A1 a good hotel, a luxury inn or equivalent in standard
A+ a luxury hotel (available at certain locations)

Sometimes we may propose a superior B&B or inn or else a simple hotel where the price and standard are between those of our A2 and A1 options, which we classify as A2+.




Some places accept dogs, often with restrictions or with a small supplementary charge. Please tell us on the short enquiry form if you intend to bring a dog with you, so that we can try to find suitable accommodation.

Walking Holidays in Dorset

Inn to Inn

Travel along a linear trail stopping in several locations along your way. Allow for time away from walking to enjoy places of interest, attractions and activities. Enjoy walking in the knowledge that your luggage has been transferred to your next overnight destination. Stay in historic inns such as The New Inn, Cerne Abbas or large hotel groups such as the Marriott hotel or specially selected B&B accommodation with excellent hostelries or restaurants nearby. Choose from stunning coastal scenery along the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site which traces 185 million years of the Earth’s history or beautiful unspoilt inland countryside and villages

We've made it!  Thanks for being our Guardian Angels, it's been a truly memorable walk. "As a wise old man once said, walking is the best medicine.  If you get the chance to walk any of the Dorset Coast don’t take a pass.  If you want a team to organise the trip and...
