At Dorset Tea we love nothing more than lacing up our Marrell’s and hitting the outdoors. The National Trust is an excellent way to plan a walking route and we think the following routes will all deliver everything you could want from an autumnal stroll.

  1. Corfe Castle– Bask in the stunning castle views as you ramble around this Purbeck village. Distance: 1.5 miles, National Trust map

  2. Melbury Downs – Immerse yourself in true Hardy country and the landscapes which inspired his novels. Distance: 3.3 miles, National Trust map 

  3. Marshwood – Enjoy hilltop views of Marshwood Vale and rolling hills on this flat 1 mile walk. Distance: 1  mile, National Trust map

  4. Brownsea IslandBrownsea Island – Red squirrel spotting is at its peak in autumn alongside beautifully coloured trees on Brownsea Island.Distance: 1 mile, National Trust map

  5. Hod Hill – Step to Iron Age and Roman times on Hod Hill with superb views of rural Dorset. Distance: 1 mile, National Trust map
