Long before Jon and I began singing together as 'Ninebarrow', Dorset had woven its spell around us. We were both born and bred in the county and it has played a central role in our lives for as long as we can remember. One of our favourite pastimes is hiking through the Dorset landscape. There’s something about the pace of walking: gentle, rhythmic plodding through the countryside. It’s just fast enough to let you explore the wonderful variety of any given landscape, but slow enough to be able to savour every moment and really absorb the myriad vistas it has to offer.
Across three days, Jon and I will lead a small group of guests on some of our favourite walks. We've thought long and hard about how to include all the very best views and also how to weave in as many of the little secret spots that have inspired our songs. You never know...we might even share one or two musical moments out on the hills themselves!
Some walks will be straight from the door of our beautiful accommodation in Kingston; for others, we'll be using a private minibus to transport the group to and from walks that start or finish a little further away.
For information on all three, just request a copy of the draft itinerary and we'll send you a detailed day-by-day breakdown by email.
Walk lengths will be between 5-8 miles each and up to four hours long
Walk difficulty - easy to moderate
Walking boots/walking shoes highly recommended
We anticipate that the walks will go ahead, rain or shine!
All the activities we undertake will be fully insured
We'll accommodate the pace of all group members
