Win a 2-night break for two on the beautiful Isle of Purbeck worth £200
The beautiful Isle of Purbeck is a paradise, a jewel on the South coast, and only 2 1/2hrs from London Waterloo. Once you take the toll ferry across Poole Harbour, the magic begins. From coast to country, the variety of the scenery is unsurpassed. For decades artists and writers have been inspired by the stunning scenery and tranquility of the Purbeck Hills.
Those looking to get away from it all can explore hidden caves at Dancing Ledge, try a spot of coastal swimming at Chapman's Pool, or just relax in the Victorian seaside hamlet of Swanage, with its award winning sandy beaches, and variety of small independent shops. For the more adventurous (and to work off a few cream teas!) the area provides spectacular walking. From a stroll along the coastal path at Ballard Down, to a serious hike along the South West Coast Path, walking The Jurassic Coast (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) is truly special. For some great walks and walking ideas in Dorset see Dorset Walks, Routes & Maps.
Purbeck offers something for everyone, try pub lunch in a typical Dorset village such as historic Corfe Castle, a ride home on the steam train, or an evening coastal cruise with fish and chips.
Accommodation is plentiful and varied, from traditional guest houses, B&B's, pubs and rural farmhouses.
And this month go4awalk.com has teamed up with Virtual Swanage to give you the chance to win a luxurious two night break for you and your partner at The Castleton Hotel in Swanage.
The Castleton Hotel is a charming & luxurious 4 star silver award winning Victorian Guest House, full of character, located just 100 metres from Swanage's glorious sandy beach and a short level stroll along the seafront to the Town Centre, a perfect place to explore the delights of the Stunning Purbeck countryside and breathtaking scenery of the Jurassic Coast . . . or just a wonderful place to unwind and get away from it all.
