... the greatest of views. Most spectacular. Such a wonderful walk on the coast path - park at Worth Matravers, or Chapmans Pool. Can do circular walk.

Well kept building, no longer open to public as far as we could see. Nice coastal walk from Durston which we made into a circular walk by following first the coast path then round the lighthouse path.

It's a wonderful area for hiking to and from with fantastic views and lots of birds to observe. You can get stunning photographs of the lighthouse. There is no entrance to the lighthouse grounds except for guests staying in the two self-catering cottages.
