Beautiful bimble near Blandford – Nice and easy 4.5 mile circular


If you’re looking for a beautiful quiet circular walk near Blandford Dorset, try this stroll in a quiet spot above the Winterborne valley, surprisingly untroubled by the busy A354 through the Winterbornes and the A350 through Spetisbury.

This was honestly a surprising of a route – literally plotted in under 10 minutes for a spontaneous last-minute afternoon walk. But what a brilliant find – we’ll absolutely return to do this one again and again. Despite being so close to two main roads, the walk was peaceful and unhurried, with some far-reaching beautiful North Dorset views views on all sides. You circumnavigate Gorcombe Farm activity centre – I’m going to guess on a busy activity weekend the noise from quad bikes could be irritatingly close by, but we were entirely undisturbed for the whole gentle 4.5 mile stroll on a Sunday afternoon.
