An enjoyable 4.8 mile circular walk from the picturesque village of Fingest, gently uphill to Cadmore End, following the ridge before descending to Fingest again.

There are nice pubs at both ends, with The Chequers Inn being more off the beaten track (although busier at weekends).

A glorious 6.1 mile walk from the enchanting village of Selworthy, climbing up through Selworthy Coombe onto Bossington Hill and Selworthy Beacon, one of the highest points on Exmoor and one of Englands 'Marilyns'.

The alk along the plateau gives great views over Minehead and, once on the seaward side, a choice can be made to take a lower route to experience more of the cliff path.  We chose the higher route as we were limited for time.  It's still a fantastic walk.

The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge takes in the peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough, usually in this order, and in under 12 hours. These peaks form part of the Pennine range, and encircle the head of the valley of the River Ribble, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

A hilly 4 mile circular walk with a particularly steep section near the beginning. The walk begins from the car park at Kimmeridge Bay (a pay booth is at the top of the private road).

After leaving the car park and passing the fishermen's cottages, you'll cross a field before heading up a very steep footpath (questioning whether it really is a footpath). Once at the top though, the views are outstanding and, following the ridge toward Tyneham Cap is a treat.

A 5 mile circular walk from Upper Froyle, taking in the former Lord Mayor Treloar College (now looking like being developed).

The route crosses the busy A31 twice so care should be taken with children or dogs. It also crosses the railway.

The nearby Hen and Chicken Pub on the A31 has some good beers on offer and a carvery every day (correct 2014).

A slightly wandering 3 mile circular walk.  We intended to follow the Lulworth range walks route but found it was closed (a good reason to always double check the range times) and, as such, we had to detour and head westwards towards Durlde Door beofre calling it a day as we battled a surprising amount of visitors for such an early weekend in the season.

A great walk for the views but I'd recommend doing it mid-week or out of season.

A well used 6.7 mile cliff walk with endless return routes amongst the fields.  Parking can be found in a large open car park at the western end of Swanage town.  From there it's a short walk to Peveril Point and the coast guard lookout.  The path turns uphill and follows a well worn route towards Durlston Head.

Depending on the state of the cliff, there may be diversions around any cliff falls so follow the signs rather than the GPX route.

A short, 3.7m pre-Sunday lunch walk taking in the Basingstoke Canal and Dogmersfield Park (now a Four Seasons hotel).

Nothing too hilly. Free roadside parking in the quaint village of Dogmersfield along with a good pub (booking advised at weekends).

A pleasant 6 mile circular walk from Clanfield around to the outskirts of Hambledon and Catherington.

The walk is mostly field boundaries and shady bridleways.

We parked in a lay-by on Hambledon Road but there are many places to choose form.

A varied 4.5 mile walk from the church in Woodmancott, through College Wood and across the fields to the hamlet of Popham.  The route then turns east past Popham Court farm before entering Popham Down Copse.  Part of the route here can be very muddy due to logging trucks.

The route then passes through more woodland before rounding onto a long shallow ridge that can be windy.  A northerly turn at the farm buildings then takes you back towards the church.

Not much in the way of facilities here.  There is a pub on the A30 before the turn off to Popham.
