1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Seeing the wildlife, deer run across our path buzzards soaring and just being out in the fresh air.. Travelling on the steam train.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Go at your own pace and take time to enjoy every aspect of the area and speak to the locals, who all seemed proud and quite happy to tell us "inside" information.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes obviously through trade within the area, eating out, transport etc. We made donations to the National Trust, Life Boat and Coastguard so hopefully something will go towards helping those organisations.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

The holiday was fantastic and we would strongly recommend it but advise anyone not to stay at The Castleton.

Read the operator's response here:

We are delighted to know how much you enjoyed your holiday; Dorset's Jurassic Coast never fails to please with its splendid walks and variety of places to visit. We are sorry that since The Castleton recently changed hands, your experience there did not meet your expectations or our high standards. As you know, we have been negotiating with The Castleton on your behalf and we are pleased to inform you that they have today, as requested, refunded the full cost of your accommodation, less the deposit, which we will be sending on to you by return. Thank you for your booking and for your excellent review.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The walk the first day. The directions prepared by the holiday provider were terrific and the selections for the walk was great. It combined great sea views with a walk across the Down.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Ability to choose which of the four walks to take. Each were described well. My advice would be to not overdo it. Choose what you want and leave the others

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I think so. We took the train down and the bus to where we hiked. We stayed at a great bed and breakfast

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent
