HF Holidays - better altogether

We offer friendly weekend and mid-week easy to moderate grade walks of 4-9 miles in Purbeck and Dorset

Our walks programme is continuous throughout the year with the exception of a break over the Christmas period. We also have a Christmas lunch!

We welcome dogs with responsible owners.

To avoid unnecessary car usage in Purbeck and assist those without their own transport, we make use of buses where possible and use car-sharing.


Come and join us on some of our walks to find out what the group is like without any obligation at all. We hope you'll like us.

For walks and joining information please contact our Membership Secretary:- 01202 684135

Some group members also walk with Canford & Purbeck Rights of Way (CAPROW) who walk weekends and midweek over a wider area of Dorset. 

N.B. Please note we are not Swanage Walking for Health. These run shorter, flatter walks usually nearer to Swanage than we do. Their aim is to improve the health of participants.


Cheerful Company.
