Allington Hill is a mixture of woodland, grassland and open space in the dramatically undulating landscape of West Dorset. It offers stunning walks and views across Bridport at the top of the hill.

With large, wide paths, there are lots of different route options which lead back to where you started, enabling you to vary length of your walk to suit. The wood is popular with dog walkers great for kids too.
