Included walking pack with three self-guided walks in the local area plus packed lunches on three days.
Bournemouth to Lymington Train Walk - Optional
There's 20 miles of stunning coastal scenery to enjoy on this walk as you discover the marshlands where the New Forest meets the sea, with views across to the Needles off the coast of the Isle of Wight. Along the way you may catch a glimpse of Skylarks and enjoy some of the most isolated areas of wildlife along this entire stretch of the South Coast. Lymington is an ideal spot to enjoy a drink to conclude the walk before you hop on a train back to Bournemouth.
Bournemouth to Barton on sea - Optional
This walk starts from our hotel, heading straight for the seafront and heading along the coast. From there you'll make it to Hengistbury Head, a nature reserve made up of sand dunes and interesting wildlife. At the end of the headland there is a village made up entirely of beach huts which makes for a colourful and pretty sight. From here you will take a ferry across the harbour. From there you'll pass Highcliffe Castle before reaching Barton on Sea.
Bournemouth Circular Walk - Optional
This is a relatively short walk but will take some time for you to really take in the sights of the town. With 4000 years of history to discover there's plenty to see! Sights along the way include Skerryvore, where Robert Louis Stevenson lived and wrote Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Kidnapped, the sea views over Bournemouth pier, Durley Chine, a Bronze Age barrow and the Hotel Miramar where JRR Tolkien was a regular visitor.Back to top
