A Tess of the Vale Business Package

If you are a local business then this is what Tess of the Vale can do for you:

  • Identify, research and investigate thoroughly a personal, local, unique walk starting and finishing at your business.
  • An original hand drawn map of your area
  • A digital link to the walk to put on your own website.
  • Promotion of your business on Tess of the Vale website and associated social media.
  • Be linked to any future activity in the area and promoted on website and social media.
  • Overall maintenance and updating – you don’t have to worry about a thing!

The benefits for your business:

  • Increase footfall.
  • Increase revenue.
  • Add an extra service/attraction to your business, with no extra work.
  • Connect with your local environment.
  • Connect with your local community.
  • Connect with other attractions in your area.
  • Encourage well-being for your guests and/or staff.
  • Encourage the understanding of your local environment and therefore increase awareness and future conservation.
  • Expand your customers to those who would not usually visit the area.
  • Attract visitors with different interests.
  • Frequent advertising and promotion.
  • Overall involvement in the development of tourism, conservation and well-being in Dorset.


  • The walks can be as long or as short as you like (or both)
  • Bike rides can be generated (for road, mountain and electric bikes)
  • You are not limited to one walk or ride!
  • Create a more personal and/or larger hand drawn map for your premises.
  • A waterproof leaflet of the walk, including information, directions and map, available for visitors and staff at your premises (add a cost if you like to sell at your own discretion).
  • You can order as many leaflets as you require (within my own limitations!).
  • A large scale A4 hand drawn, laminated map of the route, for your premises.
  • A number of black and white maps to offer children (or/and adults!) to colour
