Chesil Beach Lodge Questions & Answers

We would love to come and stay here.

But just wondering how easy it would be to get to Hive cafe/ village etc with a pram?

We would love a little break as a family of 3. Our baby would be just over 4 months the time we thinking of visiting.Is trail/ paths safe with a baby in a pram? Is there a path along seafront so we can walk along? Thank you

The National Trust field and coastal path between Chesil Beach Lodge and the village beach / Hive Café is not really suitable for a pram.

If you have a harness for your baby or he/she can be carried, it is only a 5 minute walk across the field from our garden before a pram can then be used, especially if going on into the village.

The best walking route to the beach and Hive café is across the field circling to the right for a gentler descent.

The path is not suitable for a pram, you would need to drive and park in the car park

Well it's only 12 minute walk but no pathway along first part of Common Lane so not great for buggy.

As for pathway on beach from memory it's hard enough walking on shingle let alone buggy.

However it's only 2 min drive to Hive Cafe so maybe drive or a cheap taxi fare?

Hi, my husband and I stayed here with our 4 month old baby, the path is not suitable for a pushchair, but if you have a sling/carrier you'll be fine. the owners are very accommodating 're cleaning of the rooms and stuff if you have a baby!

We used our Phil & Teds double buggy to walk from the lodge to burton bradstock which incorporated the hive cafe on the way, there is a hill to walk up on the way back, but it was manageable. We walked through the grassy area route which was fine with the buggy. There is also a coastal path which is a slightly different route down to the hive cafe but it would be more bumpy with a buggy, but could be done.

Why not invest in a baby sling or papousse (not sure how to spell it!). The path is a bit steep but the walk along the beach to West Bay is fab, but not with a buggy on the sand.

Hi there, there is a path from the B&B straight down the hill to Hive Beach and the cafe but my feeling is that it would be difficult terrain to push a pram over and maybe a bit uncomfortable for a small baby. The path down to the beach directly in front of the B&B is very steep and myself and my 11 year old daughter struggled a bit and it is shingle when you get there.
