Chesil Beach is a stunning natural wonder that stretches 18 miles along the Dorset coast. The pebble beach is perfect for a long, leisurely walk with your dog. There are plenty of opportunities for your pup to run and play, and you'll be treated to breathtaking views of the sea.

The beach is shingle, so be sure to bring appropriate footwear, but your dog will love exploring the rockpools and playing in the sea.

Right on the doorstep is the South West Coastal Path, if you head west you can take a stroll along the Fleet Lagoon to the village of Langton Herring. It is a three-mile round trip on foot from the hotel, but you can stop halfway at the village pub, The Elm Tree, to have a drink or bite to eat.
