Our favourite local walk. Guests who stay at Warren House Bed & Breakfast are always asking us what our favourite local walk is. Whilst there are endless walks around Chideock our favourite local walk is to Burton Bradstock.
A walk from the house without having to get in the car. We walk to Seatown beach via the bridleway and proceed up the hills heading east. There are three hills to walk up to get to the Thorncombe Beacon. The views from the beacon are amazing. On a clear day you can see Portland to the east nd Brixham to the west.
Downhouse Farm Cafe
A little gem worth mentioning, if you go slightly inland from the Thorncombe beacon you will find a fantastic outdoor café ‘Downhouse Farm Café’ it is well worth the short walk for some tasty refreshment.
From the Thorncombe Beacon you head down to Eype and on to West Bay. West Bay is also known as the Bridport Harbour and in recent times it has been named ‘Broadchurch’ after the filming of the Broadchurch series. There are many fish and chip huts in West Bay for a quick lunch.
We always prefer to continue our walk to Burton Bradstock and treat ourselves to lunch at the Hive Beach Café, which is set on the beach and offers a varied menu with lots of choice of fresh local fish dishes. From the Beach at Burton Bradstock we then make our way back to the village and catch the X53 bus which drops us right outside Warren House Bed & Breakfast!! What could be more perfect??
