Three great walks start at Drusilla’s, and two others start in Verwood and West Moors and finish at Drusilla’s – so make a great walking or cycling day out, through Thomas Hardy’s Wessex countryside, with lunch in the middle. It is also possible to walk to Drusilla’s from two local campsites (scroll down for details). The directions for all our walks and cycle rides are free and can be viewed/ downloaded/ printed below.

Visitors are welcome to park in our large car park whilst enjoying the walks or cycle rides but please come into the pub for a drink and (perhaps something to eat) either before or after your walk. Drusilla’s is open all day serving hot and cold drinks, bar snacks, and lunch and evening menus. Well behaved dogs are welcome in the bar area.

All walkers and cyclists follow these directions at their own risk. Drusilla’s accepts no responsibility for any mishaps of any kind! All roads and pathways used feature on OS Map 195 (but you won’t need the map – just our instructions). Sturdy footwear is strongly recommended.

Free children’s walking activity sheet to keep your youngsters trotting along! Ask at the bar for a copy.
