Today is Mothering Sunday and the  perfect chance to get out into the Dorset countryside with mum.

The county is spoilt for choice, with the Jurassic Coast offering a number of delights and fortunately, according to the Met Office, today is going to have dry weather.

Here are three of our recommended walks, taking you through the tranquil countryside, up to the coast, and history filled forts.

Langdon Hill:

Starting off is this 1.4 mile circular on Langdon Hill. Although it can get muddy in places this forest walk has wildlife highlights all year round and spectacular views over the Dorset countryside, even out to the Golden Cap.

In the spring and summer, Langdon Hill will be full of flowers including bluebells and foxgloves. Parking can be found at Langdon Hill car park, Morecombelake.

Stonebarrow walk on the Golden Cap Estate:

This 1.7 mile walk takes you across rolling hills, pastoral fields, and sunken lanes across to the dramatic coastline.

This walk is in the heart of the Dorset Area of Natural Beauty and includes a section of the South West Coast Path.

This walk does feature some steep steps and slopes and does go close to the cliff edges. Walking boots are advised.

Lamberts Castle:

Lambert’s Castle is the site of an Iron Age hill fort built around 2,500 years ago, traces of which can still be seen. This hillfort has a lot of history, built by a local tribe and a relay station was built there in 1806 as part of a chain from Plymouth to London to warn of a French invasion during the Napoleonic war.

From here you can take a short walk around the top of the hillfort taking in the surrounding views, or for those looking for a longer walk, you can follow the Wessex Ridgeway.

Less than a mile away is Coney’s Castle, so exploring both in a single day is possible. Although there is no castle at Coney’s Castle, as it is spring visitors are likely to be treated to displays of bluebells.
