'Breathtaking walk' named best in the UK for staycations

Everyone loves a scenic walk and whether it’s through woodlands, fields or cliffside trails, the UK has some pretty amazing ones on offer.

And routes boasting fresh sea air are even better.

In fact, the best coastal paths in the UK have been named – ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend.

So if you’re planning on heading away for a staycation, take note.

The team at Fitflop have rounded up the UK’s most stunning coastal walks and the winning destination is Abbostbury to Lulworth in Dorset.

Named the country’s prettiest walk by the sea, the four-mile long stretch along the sweeping cliffs is joined to the coast by Chesil Beach.

The path, which starts at Abbotsbury village, journeys past Fleet lagoon and towards Weymouth and Ferrybridge and follows on to Lulworth – with views of the famous Durdle Door along the way.

Coming in as the second best UK coastal walk is John O’Groats to Duncansby Head – a 4.3 mile route that features some of Scotland’s most stunning landscapes.

Likewise, spots in Cornwall, North Devon and the Gower also made it into the list.
