Join Paul Steele aka ‘Bald Hiker’, star of BBC 2’s ‘Take A Hike’, and his dog Malc, on a walk in Dorset!

Meet us at 10am, outside the Burnbake reception, on Saturday 1st April, for a social walk through the scenic Purbeck countryside and along the Jurassic Coast. Make new friends, see new places, and chat along to Paul who is making a 7-hour trip to Dorset for one weekend only!

Picturesque Purbeck

Starting from the Burnbake reception at 10am, the walk is free to join and open to anyone who’d like to explore a gentle 6-7 mile route, taking in the highlights of rural Purbeck.

Close to our campsite and magical forest lodges, you’ll find the Jurassic coastline and Purbeck Heath, one of the most spectacular National Nature Reserves in the country. The route will take you through the Heath, where you might just spot some of its fascinating inhabitants – it’s the only area in the UK where all six nature reptile species are found, along with rare birds such as the Dartford Warbler.

Dogs welcome

Two women walk through the Purbeck Heaths with their dog.

There are few things that dogs enjoy as much as a frolic in the great outdoors, so what better excuse than to bring your pooch pal along for a chance to socialise and sniff out the Great British countryside? The Bald Hiker’s very own four-legged companion, Malc, will be leading the way!

Please note, through the National Nature Reserve, we do ask for dogs to remain on leads.
