Lovely morning at Durlston Park
oct. 2021
Chatting to the staff in the Visitor Centre who clearly explained the walking route options - special mention to the lady who was originally from The Chilterns (Faith?) who was really interesting and informative - the walks in the park and along the coastline we undertook were made all the more enjoyable with the information provided - all the walks were clearly marked and easy to follow. Food and drink in the cafe was absolutely perfect after a few hours walking.

Walking enjoyable. Castle not so much!
sept. 2021 • Entre amis
Lovely location and great views around the country park. However the castle isn't what I was expecting as it was a castle. I was expecting a castle where you could walk around a proper castle but it consisted of a shop and restaurant. Maybe I should have looked this up! However I would recommend the walk!

Hi Michelle, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We're sorry that the castle wasn't what you were expecting, although modern improvement have been made, the castle as a building has a great history! We agree that the walks around the Country Park are lovely! Which trail did you go on?

Unsafe food hygeine
sept. 2021 • En couple
Would leave negative stars if this was an option. I recently visited the Seventh wave cafe situated in Dulrlston castle. I ordered the pork special. When it arrived it looked lovely really thick pork chop. I thought as ot was thick i would check it was cooked through. Between the food arriving i had to take insupi. And medication. By the time i cut into the steak some time had passed.

I discovered the pork to be uncooked. I sent it back. The waitress came back and advised me chef was going to re cook

the same pork chop further.
Surely this is dangerous practice.
To send out a partially cooked pork chop, then after lapsed time recook it and send it back out.
I asked for a freshly cooked meal

I raised the issue as unsafe and was advised that their chef did not agree and had 20 years catering experience.

When my meal came out they had recooked the same pork chop.
Which i refused to eat.
I got a refund of my meal only after i had to demand it.
Ruined day out! Bad catering practice? Poor customer service .

Meantime i had had insulin and needed food i was given a very warm cheese sandwich which by the melty cheese had been sat out for some time.

By then our day out had been ruined. My husband has aspergers and could not deal with the situation we had to go home.

I have reported this to food standards

Beautiful scenery and a fabulous castle
sept. 2021
Many places are recommended by people as this was to us. We visited primarily to visit Durlston Castle, so my review is just about that. The car park is very close and has plenty of spaces. There is a short walk to the castle itself and the pathways have are stepped and an alternative sloping walkway, good for people with mobility issues. The Castle itself is quite 'wow' when you first see it, younger than one thinks as it is 'Victorian' built, then you see the amazing stonemasonry and again, weren't the Victorians juts the best at engineering and construction!. Like many attractions, the prices are very fair, and you get to go inside and around, up to the top where the views are the best ever! It has a gift shop, separately run café to pass the time away. There are accompanying leaflets that describe the various 'walks' you can do. We chose to see the nearby stone globe which again is worth seeing and the obligatory photograph. The stone tablets all around provide such useful 'I didn't know that' information. Believe me you can sit there for ages, and not be disappointed. Fortunately, it was an extremely hot day, clear skies, so it was worth spending a long time there to fully appreciate it all. Highly recommended.

Beautuful place
août 2021
This is a beautiful place with a variety of walks suitable for all ages and abilities. Even though I went with my adult children, we thoroughly enjoyed attempting the obstacle courses, the swings and hammocks along the woodland trail. On another day, we had a more adult walk to the lighthouse and across the hills behind it. For those with wheelchairs or pushchairs, there are well keps paths through the woodland and down towards the lighthouse, although there are some steep hills that may be difficult for some. When we went, the cafe was short staffed due to staff having to isolate, so service wasn't at its best and the cake was stale, but I don't want to be too harsh as I understand that this was a difficult time for them.

Hi Kerry! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a nice review. We've found that people of all ages are enjoying our improved woodland trail and it's so great to hear! We hope you enjoyed the views of the Coast on your walk to the lighthouse! We try and keep our paths as well kept as possible and also have some off-road mobility scooters for hire to help people up those steeper hilly parts! We're sorry to hear about your experience in the café, and thank you for your feedback and understanding. We will make sure to pass this on to our café manager. Over all we're glad to know that you enjoyed your visit with us and hope you come again soon!

Fantastic and well
Worth a visit
août 2021 • En famille
Really reasonably priced parking and free entry to a lovely collection of walks. The cafe does take out sandwiches, lots quicker than the cafe. Just go round the corner and sit on the lovely benches overlooking the sea and enjoy. People in shop super friendly and welcoming. I recommend the wild trail explorer cards for younger kids- brilliant set of challenges for them and kept them really engaged. Nice well signed walks and views were stunning. Would be nice if there were a few more water bowls dotted about for dogs as it was a really hot day. Thanks for a great day out.
