Eggardon Hill

Crowned with the ramparts of an Iron Age hill fort, Eggardon affords king-of-the-castle-views across the Dorset countryside. There are two Bronze Age burial mounds here too.

See the skies above Eggardon Hill alive with colour at the annual Eggerdon Kite Festival, held here in September.

Beautiful at sunset!

We like ancient history, so perhaps if you don't you might not find this place as fascinating, but it is beautiful at sunset and the views across Dorset out to see are absolutely stunning!

This hillfort is easily accessible from the road and provides fantastic panoramic views of the coastline of Lyme Bay, and inland over the Marshwood Vale.
