Dog Friendly Things To Do in Dorset

Looking for an idea to make the trip with your pet even more memorable? Dorset is filled with countless attractions which both of you can enjoy. Spend your afternoon tracing the coastline and admiring the stunning rock formations. If your pet begs for more adventure, the county has endless hillsides for them to sniff around. You don’t even have to stray away from your holiday home for some quick fun. Dorset’s coastal towns are decorated with outdoor spaces for families and their pets. Here are some of the best spots you shouldn’t miss:

See the world-famous formation of Durdle Door.

One of the main highlights of the famous Jurassic Coast is the stunning Durdle Door. Aside from being a national feature, it’s also a pet-friendly destination. The limestone formation is located at the end of a long strip of beach, extending from the cliffside into a natural arch and dropping into the blue ocean. Rising hundreds of feet into the air, Durdle Door is a magnificent site. Your pooch will surely enjoy walking on the guided route towards the stone arch. And when you arrive, don’t forget to capture an Insta-worthy shot with your dog!

Extend your prehistoric visit to Lulworth Cove.

While you’re visiting Durdle Door, remember to drop by Lulworth Cove. This exquisite location lies on a gentle curve along the southern coast, protected by Lulworth’s cliffs and Pepler’s Point. Connecting the two destinations is a one-mile walk that will take you and your dog across the beautiful hillsides and superb coastal views. Once you arrive, there’s a short descent to the shoreline where your pooch can sniff the sand and catch the waves. The best part is that the cove is pet-friendly all year long!

Check out the infamous Agglestone Rock.

Agglestone Rock, also known as the “Devil’s Anvil,” is another interesting attraction found at the heart of Studland’s valleys. Visitors are welcome to explore the walking trails with their four-legged friends and savour the idyllic ambience from the sprawling flatlands. When you reach Agglestone, you’ll be greeted by an enormous sandstone block weighing 400 tonnes. Its famous nickname comes from the fact that the rock used to stand on its own with its flat top, until the 1970s when it fell to one side. There are many stories surrounding this curious formation. According to local lore, the devil took the rock from the Isle of Wight and threw it across the ocean, aiming to hit Corfe Castle!

Hike the hills and see the views from Corfe Castle.

Speaking of Corfe Castle, this historical site is only a stone’s throw away from Agglestone Rock. After a short drive, you’ll arrive at a quaint market town of the same name. Found within the town are the majestic ruins of Corfe Castle, offering a glimpse into the area’s medieval past. The site can be traced back to William the Conqueror’s time when the castle was used as a fort until its destruction during the English Civil War. There are plenty of holiday spots around the site including picnic areas, tea rooms, and gift shops. It also welcomes well-behaved dogs as long as they’re kept on a short lead!

Explore the grounds of Radipole Lake Reserve.

If you find yourself in the harbour town of Weymouth, it’s worth visiting the Radipole Lake Reserve. Located at the heart of the town, the reserve consists of two wetlands dominated by reedbeds. Aside from being a green lung for the town, the reserve also acts as a migration point for birds and woodland creatures. Guests are free to roam the grounds, watch the birds, and even have their dogs tag along. After an afternoon of birdwatching, you and your canine pal can retreat back to town for some tasty snacks!
